This pictures fails to convey the appropriate level of messiness.
Alina and the Waves (sounds like a music group).
Check out that form...just like her Mom!
Doing what guys do...digging a BIG hole.
Hole digging partners. Jeff knows how to attract the good looking girls.
Jeff's hole turned into a mermaid and attracted a number of the local kids.
The girls at work on the mermaid :)
We even brought Deana on this trip.
On a mission...just not sure what it is.
Taking a break from the beach activities (it was short lived).
All wet...waiting for the waves.
The teenage look..."you've got to be kidding me!"
The only problem with the beach...sand :)
Alina, up to her neck in a hole (Jeff's work).
In deeper...struggling to hang on :)
Not this trip, but Alina in Del Mar when she was one. Any changes?
