We went to the beach twice this summer. I forgot to write about it the first time we went so I am going to lump both of our trips together.
At the end of July, we went to a wedding in Florida and got to spend a few days at Daytona Beach. This was James' first experience with the beach. He loved it. He ate some sand but he also enjoyed playing with it.
At the beginning of September we went to Topsail Beach for a week. Again James loved it. This time he was a little nervous about the waves going in and out and knocking him over. As the week went on his balance really improved (after walking on many different surfaces and starting to get used to them). By the end of the week he enjoyed chasing the waves as long as Mommy or Daddy were standing nearby.
