He had a BLAST, but I don't know for sure how soon we'll be doing this again.....so much work just to pack all the necessary gear into my little tiny car, then to drag it all out onto the sand, and then pack it all back up a couple hours later. We also live about an hour's drive from the closest 'nice' beach, so yeah. Probably not happening as much this summer as it did last summer, but oh well.
We definitely have to go back at least a couple more times, if for no other reason than to get more pictures like these:
fascinated with the sand
feeding himself a 'veggie straw'
he could pick up and release fistfuls of sand ALL DAY
Could his eyes BE any more blue?
