When I look back through pictures of my kids, it's those of them on the beach that are some of my most favorite. With the blue background, sand for miles, and carefree, boundless room to roam, the photo opportunities are endless.

It's easy to get caught up in the relaxation and forget to capture the moments though. And before you know it, your fun in  the sun is just a distant memory. So next time you're at the beach, venture out of your lounge chair long enough to try and snap a few of these 10 awesome pictures of your kids at the beach. You'll be glad you did.

What are your favorite pictures you've taken at the beach?
