Lincoln's First Beach Visit

Lincoln took his first trip to the beach yesterday. He's already a few months behind his big sister. Aria took her first beach trip around two months - dipped her tiny toes in the water and sat in the warm sand. I guess beach trips are delayed when you are a little grumpy old man....plus surviving holidays with a newborn and recovering from leaking spinal fluid and the house buying process followed by the moving process and entertaining out of town guests. Phew, I feel like we've mostly settled as a family of four in our new home now and have had a chance to breathe.

So, yesterday Aria asked if she could go to the beach when daddy got home from work. Lincoln and I were planning on staying home to nap and make dinner respectively. But, when Chris got home he said we should all just go for a little fun in the sun and we'd just wing dinner later. Alright...twist my arm!

I think Lincoln's overall look was...concerned. But, I also think he really enjoyed watching the waves and feeling the ocean breeze on his face. The first trip of many I am sure. Aria is a little beach babe. And, watermelon on the beach is one of my favorite things...if only the sand wouldn't follow us home afterwards.

  2. Yay for the beach!! Now I want watermelon... That first trip is always a great memory maker. Aria's pigtails make me smile.

  3. How fun!!! He seems kind of unimpressed by the whole thing, but that means he didn't love it, but he didn't hate it either! Your beach is definitely a better one for introducing kids to the ocean because the water here is FREEZING. I surely would have scarred Mason for life if I would have taken him in here lol. I'm hoping he loves the water when we go to Hawaii in October!

  4. Sand is horrible... unless you have your feet in it. But you are right... it's a mess and hassle after you are away from the ocean.

  5. Awww!!! He is such a cutie!! I can't wait to take the girls to the beach this summer (although it will more than likely be Lake Michigan, not the ocean).
