Yorktown was a blast today! After going to the Battlefield and the museum there, we went to the beach to have our picnic lunch. It was chilly, but dreamy! (The beach we went to is on the York River, but it opens right up to the Atlantic about a mile down from where we were.) The pictures are better than words, so I will leave it at that!

Yorktown Battlefield: On October 19, 1781, a British army under General Charles Lord Cornwallis was forced to surrender to General Washington’s combined American and French army. Upon hearing of their defeat, British Prime Minister Frederick Lord North is reputed to have said, "Oh God, it's all over." And it was. The victory secured independence for the United States and significantly changed the course of world history.

Yorktown Beach

Catching some waves!

This is how Beckham spent most of his time - mesmerized with the feel of sand and how it fell out of his hands. So precious!

After playing in the water, Ty would run up to the sand and bury his feet trying to warm them up.

It was chilly - and I of course was the whiner.

I just love this little face - even when it has sand, pbj, and snot on it!


Thrown out to sea.

Headed out to sea.
