On July 1, 2017 we took you to the beach for the very first time! It was such a memorable and fun experience to share with you and your mom. Being that your mom and I love going to the beach, it was nice to see that you loved it too!
On Saturday morning around 7:30 we decided that right after you eat, we would head to the beach. You would get a nice little nap in the car, we would be at he beach by 8:30, no one would really be around, and it wouldn’t be too hot! You’re mommy is so good as she prepped and got all your things ready for the day in the quickest amount of time.
It seemed like we were going on a vacation for a few days because the dogs were getting a little crazy like when we go to New York for a week. I did all the car packing and we were on our way!
When we got to the beach mommy lathered you with sunblock, and I set up our tent. We were able to carry everything in one trip! I’m still surprised at that because we definitely carry more items nowadays. I think we still might get a beach carrier system to make it a bit easier.
After everything was set we took you right in the water! You absolutely loved being in the ocean, kicking your feet, and smiling all over the place. Your mommy and I took turns lifting you in the air and bringing you down so your toes could touch the water. You had so much fun.
You had a little snack on the beach. The one thing of the 50 items we brought that we forgot was a spoon, so mommy let you eat off her finger. 🙂 You relaxed and cooled off in the tent when you were not in the water. We even had a portable fan for you.
The best part there was when all three of us went in the ocean to cool off. The ocean and beach is a special place for our family and having you there was incredible. We are so lucky to have you in our lives and share moments like this with each other.
We headed back around 11:30 and you took a nap in the car ride back. Mommy and I remembered that the car ride home from a day at the beach was so nice. Nothing was better than a nap after a long fun day in the sun.
We had a great time with you and look forward to sharing more beach memories as a family. We already got you a another beach outfit and will be buying a beach cart real soon!
You are our little mermaid and we love you!
