Making bubbles with Joel's new bubble wand. I had that thing tucked away in the back of my closet waiting for just such a day as this!!
Joel was driving hard for a beach visit, but we kept him busy until after breakfast was over with stickers. This is the book his "Mamma Glenna" gave him just before we left.
Finally, off to the beach. This is the first time he has been able to wear his little beach suit his Aunt Alexis gave him. It was a huge help in protecting his little white body from the sun.
Joely using his cup...moments later it was swept away by the surf to join the Pacific Garbage Patch...I made myself feel better about losing the cup by picking up some old tire on my return trip to the cottage. Have to do my part...
Matt wanted Joel to get use to the waves and not be afraid so he brought Joel up on his lap and shielded him from the big waves. Joely felt nice and safe with his daddy ...they stayed like this for over half an hour.
We had to walk a mile or so down the beach to the restaurant. Joel got tired on the way back and hitched a ride from dad.
