There are few things that make me happier than a day on the beach. The sounds. The smells (except for dead fish smells). The feeling of sand between my toes. *sigh* So happy. My girls have definitely inherited my love of the beach as well. Baby girl’s favorite thing to do is dig in…well…whatever….dirt, rocks, wood chips, sand. So, she loves the beach. Big girl has begun to really love constructing castles with sand and rocks and whatever else she can find while also splashing in the water.
Blues skies that seem to go on forever. Love it!
Added bonus: a day at the beach fulfilled one of the things on big girl’s summer list.
