A Day at the Beach

So, the usual story. I don’t have a review for you today, but I do have some pictures.  All the visitors this month are cramping my review-writing style, but they’re giving me a great opportunity to play with my camera. Maybe someday I’ll get to add “photographer” to my list of titles.

Anyway, we took Evan to the beach (Honeymoon Island) for the first time yesterday while Ben’s mom was in town. He’s seen the water before, but he’s never played in it or the sand. It was a WINDY day and since it’s been cold, the water was also cold. And there was a riptide warning. And it was naptime. So we just stayed in the sand today and left after about a half an hour. But Evan had fun exploring the sand and trying to eat nature.

 

The ironic thing is that I totally could have written a review in the time it took me to put this post together.

  1. He looks like he was having so much fun with the two of you. It’s always so exciting to see how your child will react to something for the first time. :)

    The eat nature thing is cute, until it actually comes out the other end. We had to cut a beach vacation short once when the girl ate handfuls of sand and then screamed bloody murder when it was coming out. The doc said she was fine but all that grit in her diaper really caused some serious scraping and scratches and the occupants of the house next door actually came over to see if she was okay. Yikes!

    Yeah, but reviews aren’t as fun as posting adorable pictures! I think one of my kids (I think it was my daughter) at one point was TERRIFIED of the ocean. Just for a period of time. Like if she even came near it, she would scream her head off. And my son went through a stage when he hated getting sand on his hands and feet, and preferred to sit in the lounge chair and eat snacks. Haha. These pictures are precious!
