This week, I am taking a much-needed vacation with my boys. We are enjoying the change of scenery and are soaking up the sun and the salty air. I can’t express how much I love to be at the beach- I swear the ocean soothes the soul!
Last years vacation was in May (Brody was conceived about two weeks later, so he didn’t get to experience that trip!), and Knox was terrified of the beach. He screamed in the sand, he screamed in the ocean, but he adored the pool- needless to say, we spent our days soaked in chlorine. This year?? He literally ran to the ocean. He was thrilled with the sand, and we have a hard time getting him back inside! He has had a fantastic time jumping waves with us and getting buried in the sand (his absolute favorite). Brody took an amazing nap on the beach so I was actually able to relax in the sand. I bought one of those little half-moon cabanas you stake down for $25, and it was perfect for us! It gave Brody complete shade, enough privacy for me to nurse and still let in that cool ocean breeze.
Today we ran around to a few places and didn’t go to the beach, so I am itching to get back out. I’m so glad we waited this late to go because the temperature is a perfect 80 degrees, so we don’t feel like we are going to combust after an hour outside.
It’s definitely not the most restful of vacations considering we are still chasing Knox all over and toting Brody while he screams, but still, it’s nice to get away from real life for a while!
I’ll be back soon with pictures!
