The BEACH!

Hey there little Buddy,

I wanted to write about your second trip to the beach before any of the little details slipped away.

As blog posts go I’m totally breaking blogging rules.

I’m going to include WAY too many pictures and I’m going to post them all individually.

This is for you though so who cares about the rules!

Your first trip to the beach was when you were just a wee little thing.  At 6 weeks old Daddy and I couldn’t count on you to tell us what you liked and didn’t like.  We didn’t know when you were too cold or just plain tired.  We were still getting to know you.

Just weeks before your 2nd birthday there is NO guessing what you want or need.

You are determined and you are vocal.  You are perfect.

You have no problem telling pretty much anyone who will listen what you need to make your heart happy.   This trip with all four grandparents and us, your heart was pretty happy..

Ok here we go..

You were pretty tentative on the beach itself.  You weren’t sure how you felt about your toes in the sand or the noise coming from the waves but there was always someone close by to hold your hand.

The water was warm but maybe it was the nerves.  After you told me “Mama I afraid and Mama I scared, Mama I am cold came next
20140526-DSC_2629You wanted your GiGi to help warm you.

Eventually you warmed up to the beach.

20140524-DSC_2060Later that night Grandaddy and Pa were comparing ice cream cones.  Clearly there was a winner

You were just focused on your ice cream.20140524-DSC_2091

As tentative as you were about the beach you LOVED hanging by the pool.  You had endless entertainment.   The pink swing Gigi brought and the turtle pool Mimi brought kept you pretty busy.

So did all the attention..20140524-DSC_2032

20140524-DSC_2051You spent a lot of time in the swing. Shocker.. At one point Gigi held a cold towel to your eye and you couldn’t get enough of it. You asked for it every time you were in the swing.

We spent one night with the Brockways and your friend Luke.  You both were such good boys and did a pretty good job sharing.  20140525-DSC_2301

You boys don’t quite know the importance of these flags but you sure did like waiving them.20140525-DSC_2415

And finally when it was time to go to call it night ( or end this blog) we always knew. :)

As much fun as you had, tonight when I put you to bed you said, YES my bed.
