We are the champions, my friends.....

So, Saturday morning the Coastal Nest crew awoke to a beautiful sunshiny day at the beach..Mommy knew that there was greatness in the air..the bacon was done to perfection, I know, Im good..the orange rolls were drizzling wonderfully..I have mentally prepared for this day for, a few minutes now..with their bellies full of a horrible sugary salty breakfast, it was time for my move....
Hey kids..lets go enter the sand castle contest!!!
uhhhh, cant we play videos?
NO!!!
get your stuff!
maaawwwmmmmm.
finally..we got it together and away we went..
Heres what we ended up with...


Really not the most "High Tech" sand castle, but what the hell..we were in the kiddy group..


Father-Son
getting ready to check out the competition..


farting around...Rea, look over heree....
After it was all said and done, and two hours of heavy sand castle building..
the contestants were called over to the white tent(pic above)
We won first place!
we now are the proud recipients of the green bucket, which had a nice crisp
$50 bill and some ribbons inside for the little childrens...
wonder what would have really happened it I put some thought into it!!
wonders never cease.
Add sand castle builder to the coastal nest awesomeness.
go kids!!
hope all of you mamas had a great weekend!
ps..
Ryan even made the Daily World (local paper!)

What a fun time you all had down at the beach-we all went out to lunch with my sisters and their families drank a lot of champagne and ate too much guacamole!!
