We kicked off our summer with a trip to the beach with Fletcher's family. It was the perfect getaway after a
stressful busy spring. The beach with a one year old comes with a lot of gear and early mornings (at least for us), but we had such a great time! Thanks to Honey, we had all the essentials we needed for B at the beach. B loved the ocean, but was unsure about the sand. She did not want to sit or crawl in the sand. The weather was so pretty that we spent the majority of the time at the ocean, rather than the pool.
BEACH ESSENTIAL - Baby pool! Especially for a baby who doesn't like the sand. Her favorite activity seemed to be climbing in and out of the pool.
Time in the sun can be exhausting. Thank goodness for snack time!
The Gulf was a perfect restaurant for a busy baby!
We enjoyed lots of reading time at the beach. I hesitated to even bring a book, because I wasn't sure I would have the opportunity. Much to my surprise, I was able to start and finish Sparkly Green Earrings.
B likes to teach me to let go of my expectations. I had it in my head that I wanted a picture as the sun started to go down on the beach. I soon realized it wasn't going to happen on the beach and decided we could try it on the porch. The above picture was the reality. You win some, you lose some.
Until next time, Orange Beach!
