Martyrs
After we went to the San Diego Zoo we stopped off at Oceanside. It was cold, but my kids are die hards when it comes to sand and surf!

As you can see, there was a pretty darn thick fog rolling around while the two youngest played in the water and the rest of our group gathered shells for our project.

Then we got to work!

It's our tradition to make a sand sea turtle and decorate his shell with ...um... shells.This year our turtle had a kazoo.Rock on dude. Rock on.

Cool turtle. I'll have to remember that one next time we are at the beach -- hopefully sooner than later. You are so creative.

I love the pictures. :-)

The turtle is so cute.

It looks fun, but when you mentioned the word cold, I kinda checked out mentally.

Your kids are brave with cold water! I am a wuss.

I love kazoo playing turtles! Your pics are great! You ought to print them in black and white and hang them up!

looks like so much fun. The pics are awesome, especially the one of Little Bug's sillouette (sp?) walking through the water. Just beautiful!
