With a traveling Paco and the mumps we were late in kicking off the summer, but we finally made it to the beach. When we finally got there, we couldn't get enough of it. The sun in our eyes, the cool salt water on our skin, the hot breeze in our hair and the sand on our toes. We built sand castles that dreams were made of, we had adventures on kayaks and we discovered the sea creatures we read about in books. It couldn't have been better, we were the beach bums we've always wanted to be.
