A couple of weeks ago a friend lamented that she really wanted to go to the beach, but her husband wouldn’t let her go alone because she is nearing the end of her pregnancy. I offered to go with her. After working out some logistics with my parents for picking up Elias from his camp, I set off with Simon, Caleb, my friend, and her son for the coast. I had never attempted to go to the beach without Nathan so I was glad I had a good friend to try it out with.
The boys had a lot of fun. Caleb had been to the beach a lot before this, but had never been too interested in the sand. That sure changed! He loved feeling it sift through his fingers….and I tried not to let too much end up in his mouth.
Simon and his friend loved running around in the little stream on the beach. I, of course, did not get Simon’s swimsuit on him fast enough, and he was laying down in the water getting soaked…sweatshirt and all. Oh well!
