every chance we get. We go to the beach. It's a 10 minute walk from our front door to the sand. (another 5 minutes to DRAAAAG the stroller through the sand to get to where we want to be, close to the water).
Here's a random assortment of pictures from beach trips. (obviously the iphone camera took some of these!)
This one is from our very first trip- it was in the afternoon and Jules didn't even wear a suit b/c it was kind of chilly.
The next weekend is when we left for Hilton Head. The weekend after that was Labor Day weekend. Sarah and Gracie joined us at the beach that Saturday.
And just yesterday, we drove to Torrance Beach for fun and something different. It doesn't matter to Aidric which beach we're on- he looooves the sand and water.
For not crawling (nor even rolling on a regular basis) this child is surpsingly mobile. She scooches. Note that I put her smack dab in the middle of the beach blanket. By the time I turned around to get something out of the bag and looked back up, she had scooched all the way to the end, pulled up the blanket and was eating sand.
Here's Aidric with his legs buried in the sand. This was taken during the 5 or so minutes that I just went with it and let Juliet sit in the sand and eat =)
