When Our Feet Kissed the Sand

During our one week vacation  in Ocean City, our day always started with a morning walk in the ocean shore.  It is refreshing to breath the fresh air and letting your feet kissed the  sand is just therapeutic.  It makes me reminisce my  younger days growing up in a coastal part of the Philippines. 
 I found it very interesting that very early in the morning, a lot of people were already swimming.
 My kids were obsessed with finding seashells.  We  brought home a good bit of them.
 Watching my husband and son  talked  about  stuff  reminds me of my Dad and my siblings.
 We love very far from the ocean so my kids  were definitely  in paradise in Ocean City.  They  enjoy every little thing that they see, even the things that most people might not even paid attention to.
Even though we don't have a lot of money, we  see to it to  do a little getaway  once a year because we want the kids to enjoy the things that hubby and I failed to enjoy when we were kids.
 It's just a joy to see  them  have a blast.
 I am a big stalker of my kids so I take pictures of them all the time.  I just want to preserve the memories through pictures.  I want them to remember when they are grown ups and we  are gone that we do things as a family.
 Watching my  son adore the ocean, makes me smile, makes my heart sing for joy.  I will let the photos below talk  of how joyful he is  being in the ocean shore.
 The little  lady always brings this  bag to store the shells they collect.
I miss  Ocean City especially now that  it is getting so cold in here.  I would love to go back there even just for a couple of days.   Just to be able to let our feet kissed the sand again would be so awesome!

The photos described it all. you have a great trip and the kids did enjoy to the max.

You guys are looking good. And it is nice to see the kids having so much fun at the beach. I miss being at the beach and the warmth of the sun. Someday, we will visit a place again where it is nice and warm, and enjoy some family time at the beach. I collected a bunch of seashells too when we went to Florida. It was kind of embarrassing checking in the airport and my luggage was heavy due to shells. LOL!

Eileen said...

Totally agree, sis. Spend as much time with children while they're young. Pretty soon, they will be old enough to start their own lives. I am nearing an "empty nest" stage of life and it sometimes makes me feel lonely and depressed. BTW, those are great pics. Your children are so beautiful. Priceless moments!

I love walking on the sand as well. It tickles the sole of my feet.

It's really a great relaxation when you just walk down the sea shore, makes you feel so relax because of the wave of the ocean, that everlasting water where you would think where will its end. A wonderful moments with your family.

Ralph said...

The children's lone shadows in the early morning sun are adorable - just enjoying the morning surf and sand min us the summertime crowds. Nice!

Nonnie said...

I can't believe how big they are getting! You did what I like best whenever I had the chance to visit the shore. I have jars full of rocks, shells, pieces of animals, even a small sponge.

Ocean City sounds like a great escape for me right now!

Ahhh. How nice it would be to have a morning walk around the beach. ♥

We are total beach bums in our house. We only have about 3 months of beach weather here in New england, but we take full advantage of those three months.

Melissa Pezza said...

Those pictures are wonderful. I'd love to take the family to Ocean City. There's nothing better than a day at the beach!

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle said...

There's nothing better than a day at the beach with the family. We try to get to the beach at least three or four times in the summer.

Terri Ramsey Beavers said...

What a fun day at the beach you had. We love to look for seashells when we go and I can't wait for summer to get here because I'm ready for a beach day.

spiffykerms said...

That beach looks so nice and warm! You guys look like you had a ton of fun and hey - the beach looked pretty empty, so you guys had it all to yourselves.

Jennifer Van Huss said...

It seems like forever since I have been to a beach!! With all this snow, that looks like heaven right now!!

Oh I love your pics! Your kids surely had fun. Can't wait to hit the beach this summer! I can hardly wait! :)

I love family days at the beach like this. Collecting seashells and walking through the sand is so simple, yet so fun.

What a wonderful memory this day will be for your entire family. You captured some wonderful moments.

I am obsessed with finding sea shells when we go to the beach. I always come home with a sore neck from looking down everyday!!

We live far from the ocean too. Just like your kids, my kids love it when we visit and def. get the most out of it while they're there.

Rebecca Swenor said...

This looks like an amazing time for you all indeed. It is so important to spend family time together. I have never been to Ocean City but would love to visit there some day. Thanks foe sharing

Jeanine said...

Wow! Looks like such fun. Also looks like an absolutely beautiful place. We live no where near a beach, or the ocean sadly. My kids would have a blast though and for sure take it all in and enjoy it if we were ever to get to something like this! Beautiful.

Kori Tomelden said...

I'd love to visit Ocean City someday. We don't live very close to the ocean either. Though we're only an hour or so away from Lake George.

It looks like such a fun day at the beach. I love the sand and the sun on a beautiful day, but I haven't been to the beach in a very long time.
