It's important to wear A LOT of sunscreen and protective clothing when spending time playing at the beach. I will admit however, it makes for some really CUTE photos too!! LOL!! Just look at my mini-Jackie O's having a blast in the sand--they made quite a few heads turn and smile while we were there! Can you believe they kept their hat on the ENTIRE time (unless you count the time I took it off to get a better picture..haha!!).
