Today, 12.4.12. I took my boys back to the beach. We were there Sunday and had a blast. There is a beach, that is now “our beach” that is generally empty. What a difference two years makes, in 2010 when we were here the boys lasted 30 minutes tops and then i half drug them home they were so tired. This year they are making it two hours and going strong.
The boys had a great time playing in the water. I got in up to my ankles and while it was not warm, it was really not as cold as i anticipated I have suffered many a colder hotel pool for the joy of my children; but i still did not get in as deep as they did.
I realized the entire beach is just one big sensory experience The waves, the water moving constant. The wet sand, the wetter sand, and even the dry sand that sticks to you. We dug a hold deeper than momma could reach, deep enough that we had standing water. Both boys ended up flat on their tummies to reach the goupy water sand mix at the bottom.
I promised we’d go back, maybe even tomorrow.
