Yesterday was a beautiful sunny and breezy day which made it perfect for our trip to the beach. To say I was excited would be a serious understatement. I have been “patiently” waiting for this day since summer began. I wanted to see the look on my little guy’s face when he first saw the ocean and the sand. I wanted to see his reaction to feeling the sand in his toes and the water on his feet. I wanted him to feel how I feel at the beach- relaxed and at home. The beach has always brought me a sense of calm and peace that I could never find anywhere else. I wanted to share that with my little guy.
So at 8am there I am packing up anything and everything we could possibly use or need for our day out. I made sure my little guy was fed and took his nap so that we had a positive start to our day. When we got to the beach, it was definitely warm out but a steady breeze made it comfortable. I had my little one outfitted in his onesie, shorts, and hat, and of course he was covered in sunscreen lol. What can I say, I like to be prepared. I’m the type of person that will carry all of their belongings with me at all times just in case theres’s that one time that we could possibly need something.
As we walked up to the shore, I saw a smile cross his face and I knew that he would love the beach as much as I do. He smiled and giggled the whole time we were there (a whole whopping hour). He loved the sand in his toes and the water on his feet and legs. I must say the water was warm and delightful. It was a perfect visit to the beach. We would have stayed longer but it was approaching his nap time and the last thing I wanted to do was ruin a perfect day with him being grumpy and cranky due to missing his nap. We packed everything up and waved goodbye to the waves, until next time. It was a perfect first visit, one of many, to the beach.
Any of you have your favorite first trip or visit to the beach or any place in particular? I would love to hear about it. Leave a comment down below. XO
