We went to the beach for the babies first real time this week.
They've been one other time, but they never left their car seats, and even then, within thirty seconds they were somehow covered in sand. And it was so humid that the more we tried to wipe the sand off them, the more it just dug into their heads. So I took the babies and left.
The other reason we haven't been is that even with my mom here, it took us about an hour and a half to get all our junk together and get out of the house. Plus I was just never sure how it would go watching them all at the beach. How do most beaching families do it? Just get over the sand eating? Not worry about them rubbing sand in their eyes? I guess that's probably what I'll have to do if we're going to become more regular beach-goers.
Ashton was actually really good and just liked to feel the sand between his fingers.
But Phoenix was the naughty one who just couldn't keep the sand out of his mouth (note the devious look).
We'll see if I'm ever brave enough to do it on my own.
