I spent my Mother’s Day introducing the Toddler to the ocean. I don’t think he knew what to think about it. He liked the sand but the sound of the waves seemed to scare him. I’m just happy we made it there at least once before the oil spill hits the Alabama Gulf coast.
It was really nice to see my parents. I didn’t get a picture of my dad … but here is me with my mother.
We are very close despite the fact that we sometimes get on each other’s nerves. Occasionally we will both be saying the same thing but in a different way. Apparently it’s because we are so much alike. I’m sure it’s comical to watch.
He was clinging to me like a little monkey. He never cried, though! Just kind of stared …
We looked at the water …
We looked at the sand …
… and looked at the water some more.
He was so impressed that the next day he was looking at real estate.
We went back to the beach one more time before we came back home … just to make sure I got FRIED.
I think we need to get the Toddler some sunglasses that fit him. He squinted a lot.
It’s so cute how he copies everything that Daddy does. Well … it’s cute NOW. That might change.
And then we came home. That was kind of a downer.
I think family vacations, even 24-hour ones, are really important. Also important: healthy meals. That will be my next installment.
