Lotus' First Beach Trip! (Aug 18th)

A few Monday's ago Kevin, Lotus, and I took a trip to Point Pleasant Beach. We were not sure what to expect from Lotus since this was her first time on the beach. She definitely surprised us, she was fine with the sand, she was having fun digging and playing in the sand. Kevin took her down to the water, she was a bit apprehensive at first, then she really started digging the waves and water. She was getting very brave on her own and then it happened! A little wave knocked her down, salt water up the nose, sand in the hair, etc. After that she was pretty much done with the water. So we went back up to the blanket and played in the sand for a bit. Afterwards we went up to the boardwalk for lunch, which Lotus zonked out for about 30 minutes. We then walked the boards and checked out the Aquarium. We have a few picks of Lotus checking out a huge shark and other large fish. Then she spotted the seals! She absolutely loved the seals, she got to view them below and above the water level. She was sooooo exicted. It is the best feeling, seeing things for the first time through your child's eyes. Enjoy the photos from our trip.

Love the slideshow. Also love Pt. Pleasant. Just found out about how kid friendly it is last year. We went about 3 times this year. Sounds like a day trip next year.

Love the photos. I still have your email about the picture advice you gave us all (CCAI group). I wish we lived closer to a beach-I love being around the ocean.
