First Day at the Beach

Baby has never been to the beach. We knew she loved the pool and water, but she'd never been on sand or been in salt water. So, we were all excited to bring her.

She was all protected from the sun with her sun screen and cover up and hat. She was a pretty good sport about everything. Then, we had her walk in the sand a little. I don't think she liked it much. She liked the firm low-tide sand more than the rough, dry beach sand. Then, she wasn't sure what to make of the ocean. The below video is of her first "waves". She definitely wanted Papa to pick her back up again.

By the end, she enjoyed herself though. After the day at the beach, she was exhausted. She took a nice nap in her little tent.

Nephew was adorable as always. The ocean left him a bit chilled. Plus, he does not like walking on the sand at all. So, his battle cry all week was "Carry Me!" The sucker - er, family member who loved him most - was usually Husband.
