I Heart Faces is all about the Beach this week.

I love this picture.

Kaish and Betsy were just discovering how freezing

the waters of Wildwoods are.

What is your favorite thing to do at the beach?

What a super-fun entry!! We love going to the beach even when it's cold...the kids will be freezing and they'll still be having so much fun they can barely stand it. :)

I love it!! It almost gives me the chills, from their shock from the cold! Great picture!

Taylor said...

Love the expressions and the foamy water, great shot!

Pam D said...

Oooh, girl, do I ever know THAT face! Woooo... brrrrrr.. . I could NEVER be a member of the polar bear club! hee .. LOVE the entry!

Dan said...

Tidal pools in the rocks were are my favorites. I also like walking the beach in the hours before a storm.

Nothing like a little cold water to wake up.

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

That is a great one for sure! I love her smile and Kaish looks soo happy...even if freezin...;)

tiff said...

Great expressions! My kids also love the beach no matter the weather but me? I can wait until it's Summer.

Karyn Kuniyuki said...

LOVE the new header! I could totally sense the frigid water temperature from your shocked faces, too much fun, I was always in the water no matter the temp as a kiddo. My favorite thing to do at the beach is look for seaglass, I'm obsessed with it! I look forward to when me kids are old enough to entertain themselves and I get to linger over seaglass covered shores...

AliC said...

I love it, I can tell by his expression how cold it is!!

drewmark19 said...

Boy! #3 on the list. You're quick! I just finally got my entry on. It's nothing spectacular. :) I love this. Your sister and Kaishon look like they're having tons of fun (despite the cold).

Rebecca said...

You can just feel how cold it is from the look on his face!

Karie Lee said...

Great shot! I love your new banner too!

Billykidd said...

Elaine at Matters of the Heart) said...

Oh what a beautiful shot. Love the new look too. Oh how I want a new look...

drewmark19 said...

Becky,

That is HILARIOUS what Kaishon said. I am so far on the other end of the spectrum for color that I'm afraid he's going to be terribly disappointed. :) (Seriously, I glow in the dark.) Jordyn's about the closest he's going to get.

Kellie said...

Good job capturing such great expressions. Looks great!

Martha in PA said...

Great photo. I like to people watch!

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

Oh yeah...thanks for the correction there...I feel like a rookie it has been so long...I have a new FACE pic up!!!

Thanks again, and I gave you a shout out...cuz that is how I roll...LOL! ;)

And..PS, your word verification is dinglypo...How dare he say I have dinglypo!!!;)

Jason, as himself said...

I love the beach. But my favorite thing to do when I get the beach is go back home and get into the pool.

Sad, but true.

onlinemommy said...

Beaches in Philippines do not freeze because we don't have a winter season. But just seeing the expression of the little lad's face in the photo describes how it feels when the water is freezing.

Jodie Mae said...

What a great pic!

Jessica said...

Love how happy you guys are in the water! Very cute! Makes me smile!

Marilyn said...

Great picture. Now, how do you resist that face? Kaishon has the most precious face ever! Bet he gets his way a bunch. He sure would with me.

American in Norway said...

Love the picture... your son is adorable & I love the new header!

Ave said...

They seem to have a lot of fun!

He & Me + 3 said...

I love this shot..their expressions are priceless.

heidiannie said...

I think that first shocking cold is the best part of the experience- you know it's coming and it wakes you up to the wonderful fact that YOU are AT THE BEACH! great picture!

Annette said...

Living on the Spit said...

I wish our water was that cold!!! Unfortunately is as warm as bath water and filled with jelly fish.

I love to just sit there on the sand and ponder life.

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Great shot. Looks like a fun but cold time.

antoinette marie said...

love the 'cold water dance' they're doing....our highs have only been in the 70's almost all summer so far so we do that dance a bunch....correction, asher does it, i don't even get in the water! blessings...

Granny Smith said...

I'll stick to exploring tide pools - with my shoes on! Campfires on the sands are nice, too, if everyone remembers to clean up the site afterwards (ashes and all). That is a impressive and expressive photo!

elizabeth said...

Great photo - the look on his face is pricess! And I challenge anybody to look at it and not smile. :)

Becca said...

What a fantastic entry! :-) I love how perfectly you captured their expressions! oh and I love your new blog look too - that header is just great!

julie said...

What a great shot! I definitely would have been OUT of that water - I am a cold water whimp! I'd be on the shore with my camera, too! ;)

Heather said...

Every year, it absolutely amazes me... the water is so cold that I can barely stick my pinky toe in, but the kiddos-- they're in up to their eyeballs and we have to drag them out to go home. There's just something magical about the beach :)

Great shot~

Jennifer Bowen said...

The expressions on both Kaishon and Betsy are so natural. The photo exudes pure enjoyment. You have captured such a priceless moment. Great entry, Rebeckah!

My favorite thing to do at the beach... hmmm?... What beach?!? I wish I live close to one so I can enjoy it with the kids. Will you send me some sand, at least? LOL

Tiaras said...

Alicia said...

Cute picture!!!

My favorite thing to do at the beach is listen to the waves!

The Animator's Wife said...

Why is it that the nerve endings that sense coldness just stop working at the beach??

Great moment-- and you did great job catching it!

pinkmilkisyummy said...

Great capture! I love the expressions on their faces - it reminds me of when I was a kid, and getting that exact same look on my face when I realised that the water was absolutely freezing.

the monkey's mama said...

Finally checking out the entries and I LOVE yours. those expressions are priceless and the story is great--SO true! I totally make the ACK face when i get in cold water but it is SO fun, too!

PS Whenever i visit your blog i get warm fuzzies. Lame comment, i know, but true, and sometimes it is nice to hear it!

Loving your photography! I have always been interested, but recently got a Sony a200k and the Adobe Creative Suite3 so I'm reading to get out there and start taking photos! Hope to find tons of inspiration through the pages of your blog! :) Thanks so much!
