Watch Out For Jellies!

We went to San Diego yesterday and played at the beach. We had lots of fun with our friends, the ocean, and all the jellies!! Mallory and Jillian were stung by huge pieces of slimy jellyfish. They were playing in the ocean and ran in to say their feet hurt. Then huge globs of slime rolled up on the shore. The lifeguard used our bucket to put it in. It looks so gross!
Here is another piece that we found, a lot smaller than the first one.

Poor little Jillian, her whole foot got it!

Here they are recovering from the sting. No one wanted to go back in...for awhile. About 45 minutes later they were ready. I was kinda scared to put my feet in too.

We broke in our new boogies! The kids played with them for hours. So much fun!!

Jillian was trying to get the hang of it.
Logan surprised me. He wanted to play in the water and be so silly. He would make himself fall into the little wave. Then he would stand up when the water was pulling back and try not to fall down.

We were so tired when we got home, but it was a fun beach day.


  1. I'd love to live close enough to make a day trip to the beach. You are so lucky!

  2. i am impressed the kids still wanted to swim...i can remember when my sister got stung when we were kids and her whole shin swelled and that was the end of that beach trip
