Beach Bucket Makeover and All Things Wonderful Link Up 5/9

The day before Easter we had a chance to go to the Ocean with some wonderful family friends of ours. There is nothing better than hanging out at the beach, and spending time with family and good friends. Well I thought that before we went to the beach that it would be fun for the girls to decorate their own beach buckets to take with them. Boy did they have a lot of fun doing this. Didn't they turn out darling? I just love their illustrtions!
This is a picture of the girls heading out to the beach. Yes, it is April and they had full on sweat outfits, jackets, and rain boots. Where we live the beaches are not warm and full of sunshine. However, it turned out to be a really nice day and the sun did peak out of the clouds. The girls beach buckets were filled up that morning with delicious "Razer Clams" that we dug up as a family. O.K., so I should say my husband dug up and I watched. My girls were not the least bit shy holding the clams and lets just say they are pretty gross looking. Just think of a huge giant slug hanging out of a shell. I have pictures but I didn't want to gross anyone out. Boy, do they taste delicious all cooked up however! Yes, that is right you see Easter Eggs scattered about. My friend and I thought that it would be fun to do an Easter Egg Hunt at the beach, and the kids loved it. The beach was pretty deserted after the "Razer Clam Digging" ended, so the kids (all 6 of them) had a blast hunting all over for eggs without anyone disturbing them. Now it is time for you to link up a "wonderful" post from your blog or website. It could be a wonderful tutorial, something you have done with your children, a piece of artwork you have made, a favorite recipe, DIY craft project, decorating ideas, giveaways you are hosting, wonderful things you have found in blog land, etc.
