Clearwater Beach

We went to Orlando and Disneyworld! It was so much fun! We did 5 day at Disney and a day at Clearwater Beach. It was a week to remember. We were all completely exhausted by the end, but it was well worth the tired feet and long travel days. I wanted to do a separate post of just our day at the beach because I got some really great pictures and A LOT of them! It may have been the favorite part of our whole trip. It was Janie's first time seeing the ocean and when she first stepped into the sand, she said, "I got snow in my toes!" She was so fun to watch! She loved to chase the seagulls and throw sand at them. Caleb played catch most of the time and Claire just ran back and forth from the water and playing in the sand. Eliza stayed at home with Aunt Angie. I missed her so much, but I think it was best to leave her at home for this crazy trip. The kids loved running free and playing! It was so lovely. I wish we could have stayed longer. These pictures make me ache to go back. We loved Clearwater Beach!

Getting there wasn't our favorite. It took HOURS because of a festival that weekend. But we survived and made it in time for a couple hours of fun...

 Janie's first steps in the sand...

 Mikey's excited!...
 So is Claire!...
 The last time Caleb went to the beach was when he was 4 months old. I think he was pretty excited too...
 These 2 played all day!...

 Best Auntie K!...
 Play, play, PLAY!...






 Janie went back and forth and back and forth from the water filling this tiny rake with water...
 And Cal with a bucket...
 Claire loved it!...

 Sand everywhere...


 Playing catch. By the way, the water was freezing!...


 Mermaid Claire...
 She finally realized the bucket could hold a bit more water...
