  2. Thanks RR!
    Together with our "dates" I know it'll be a rad beach party! ;>

  3. My favorite part may just be taking naps on the beach. After a long day of playing in the water, some beach volleyball, and just general running around there is nothing more relaxing and calming than falling asleep with your toes in the sand and with the waves in the background. :) Love it!


  4. thanks so much, prettypanda!

    the inconspicuous sound of those lapping waves as the soundtrack is my fave part, too!
