For a sweet touch, homemade chocolate chip cookies graced the picnic basket, a delightful addition baked with love the previous night. Soft, gooey, and irresistible, they provided a perfect ending to their beach feast.
Equipped with their Sugar Beach Co umbrella, the family journeyed to the beach. Finding the ideal spot by the water, they set up their beach blanket and unveiled their seaside banquet.
