Camping cont'd

Tate woke up happy even after a rough night of sleep.  He was starting to get sick, so he was awake every few hours. ): 

Since our family was up early we decided to go for a long walk.  It was sunny and calm on the beach--so pretty!

We found this sand castle on our walk.  The boys thought it was so awesome!
Mama & Tate
After lunch the whole family went to the beach and we spent the day playing in the sand, flying kites, and doing a treasure hunt.
Audrey & Lydia love helping with baby Tate (:
Grammie & Emma
We were very thankful for our wind tents because it got SO windy and cold as the day went on. 
(Josh's parents bought one for each of our families a few years ago and they have come in very handy on several occasions!)
Josh stayed warm digging in the sand & "burying" the kids (:
Audrey & Macey posing with Ronan who was buried up to his neck!
Ethan & Griffin
Grammie & Grandpa Lermo came over for the day to join us on the beach and at the campfire. (Grammie didn't want to leave without eating s'mores) (:
Tate sure likes Great Grandpa (:
It was nice having a dry, sand-free place for Tate to play in!
Grandpa and the Creager kids put together a treasure hunt for the rest of the cousins.  It was awesome!  They made up video clues and hid things around the beach.  The kids worked in teams and everyone had a lot of fun with it!
Searching for treasure...
 Griffin found one of the clues!
 Ronan & Ethan found their next clue, too.
Josh got our kite going and some of the kids got to try it out.  (Lydia and Griffin especially liked the kite.)

 The wind was SO strong that Amy literally had to hold onto Griffin so he wouldn't get taken away (:
