A couple weeks ago (I know, I'm behind on my posts!), we spent a full day with family and friends at Shek O beach. Besides photos below, also see the following videos:
Video 351 of Natalie jumping the waves at Shek O beach with Lisa Yee-yee and her cousins Victoria and Nicholas. For someone who used to be terrified of the sand and waves, she sure loves them now!
Video 352 of Lauren at the beach. She loved looking out over the gentle waves. When we first put her down, she was smiling and quite fascinated by the gritty sand and the cold water touching her feet. But by the time we got the camera out, she wasn't as happy and actually started to cry. It's a cute cry, tho :)
Video 353 of Toby, Natalie, Ethan, Nicholas and Vanessa playing together with sand at the beach. Seriously, sand + kids = a good thing. Now I understand why sandboxes used to be so popular before we all became germ-aphobes.
Toby, Natalie, Ethan and Nicholas playing with sand at the beach. The sand is actually pretty nice. It's soft and fine, not like the small pebbles at Stanley beach.
Great photo of Natalie with her family and friends. We have 4 umbrellas grouped together to form a big protective sun-barrier for the kids (and the big people, too).

Lauren spent most of the time asleep at the beach, but when she finally woke up, she was really cheerful.
Later in the day, we took out some pre-boiled eggs and a dye-kit for the kids to decorate Easter eggs.
They loved it and it was great because we didn't worry about accidentally dyeing our sofa a soft pastel shade and the kids had colored sand to play with afterwards, too.
So pretty and colorful. Great job, kids!
Ethan and his mommy Annie.
Helpers. Lauren is sleeping and looks like a sack of potatoes on Suparti's lap.

Dennito the Bennito. Thanks again for the slow-cooked, hour-long chicken wing!
Honestly, we've got to do this again!

Can you guess the owners of these feet?
