The Beach

I am back to being a single mom since Vaughn started his first day today as a Resident at UT. I don't mind...I actually love it. The kids and I decided to check out this beach at the Clark Center Park. It is nothing compared to the St. Maarten beaches, but hey, I live in Tennessee, 6+ hours from a beach so this works for us. It had sand for the kids to play in, and an area roped off so the boats can run over anyone, nice huh!

This is our unfinished Sand Shark. Tyson wanted to build a sand castle, sucks at making sand castles. They are my nemesis. So I suggested to build a sand creature. We did pretty good until Tyson decided he was finished and left me the task to complete it by myself. I would have abandoned it, but my son really wanted it finished, he just didn't want to be the one to do it. And since he wanted to play in the water, so did Taryn, and she cannot swim. So..... this is all of the shark that we finished. Tyson felt bad when we left that we didn't get it done, and was distraught that it would be gone when we go back again someday. I had to reassure him that we would make another one.

Quick shot of the kiddos just before Taryn had a meltdown. 5 seconds after this picture was taken Taryn decided she was tired and was done with the whole beach thing. She screamed so hard you would think she was in some horror flix. Jeez, the girl has a set of lungs. I hope that means she will be a good singer someday. Even though we had to leave, we had been there over 2 hours, and it was time to go. Another fun place for us to play here in Knoxville. On to new places tomorrow.
