I am not a huge fan of the three dreaded H’s – hazy hot and humid. After the winter we had though, I feel like I should not complain. But I don’t like bringing the kids outside in this weather. In part because it is too hot and the sun is too strong, but in part because I don’t like being out in it. So we tend to play outside a lot in the mornings, before it gets too hot. This past weekend we decided on a morning trip to the beach.
This time we remembered to bring buckets, shovels and a ball.
After playing with the sand for a while, the kids finally ventured out to the water for our favorite beach activity – throwing rocks into the water. Emily wore her water shoes and although I brought the kids’s water shoes, they did not want to put them on.
This was in part a random trip to the beach and in part a celebration! This was a weekend with a few milestones. Thursday July 3, with his grandparents and cousin there to witness it, Spencer said his name! it is breathy and sounds like Peeeh-sa, but it is his name and sounds beautiful! And then Sunday evening, Sidney sat criss-cross applesauce for the first time.
