connor's first beach day

we took connor to the beach. hurray. he got to dip his toes in the pacific ocean for the first time. he loved it. it was sweet to see him get excited to touch the sand. all the kids were having a blast running from the waves and playing in the sand. mason really loved running along the water. it was freezing cold. we stayed for a couple of hours and then connor got tired. the walk home from the beach is always harder than the walk there. we went with ray and bodhi so when we got back to their house we all took turns taking showers and then jen joined us for dinner. i still think that a shower after a day at the beach is the best feeling in the world. it was a perfect visit.

too bad jen had to work and missed the beach trip. i am hoping to plan another one with her soon. i am trying to figure out how to make the trip easier. i would like to be able to take the kids by myself. miles doesn't usually like to go but we have too much stuff that needs to be carried along with the three kids. i am usually fine with the baby carrier and the double stroller but what do i do with the stroller once i reach the sand? ray decided to lock bodhi's stroller on the bike racks by the bike trail. that turned out to be a good idea. it seemed to work nicely for him. now i just need to get a bike lock. i can't wait to try it out and have another day at the beach.

i was sad to have missed this trip too! I really do want to go with you and the kids to the beach sometime this summer. maybe we could drive to make it easier on ourselves.
