When you live in the Mid-west and the closest thing to a sandy white beach is a plane ride away, all you can do is plug your nose and settle for the lakey green water and brown sandy beaches at your local state park :) Austin has never been to a beach and in the spring we had learned a little about oceans, so the beach topic came up. I, of course, was quick to plant Florida and Hawaii ideas in their head. I suppose it was a big let down when we took them to the local park beach last weekend! I think the only ones that minded a bit were the adults along though, because Austin has asked every day if we can go back to the beach instead of the pool :) We decided last minute to head to the beach with our neighbor friends and invited another family along too. I'm so glad we went, but I might have to bribe our adult tag-alongs with some serious treats next time to join us again!! ha!
Carson's first time at the beach!
Dad's scoping out the water options
Carson loved digging around in the sand and I didn't mind...
Seriously. He wouldn't stop.
Happy boy in the water
This boy loved it too! He was care-free and loving every minute!
