Off-Season Beach Bums

November 11th, 2010 by ninja

Mika and Gaang have a history of Fall/Winter beach play dates at Coney Island. The first time, two years ago, Tobin was on the brink of walking and Sahn wasn’t even born. Look at them now: at times, all four kids played together nicely (although Sahn wasn’t allowed near the water on his own). Tobin had brought along his brand new backhoe loader from Omi Hilde, which proved to be the most popular vehicle … especially with Sahn. Good thing Tobin shares even his most prized possessions, so the afternoon turned out to be sunny all around.

UPDATE: here’s the collaborative picture Mika and Gaang created back home in the afternoon – featuring real (and imaginative) sea creatures of the NY Aquarium and the Atlantic Ocean:
