A friend invited us to the beach, and I’m sure glad we went. It was a little too hot for my liking, but the water felt so good. I didn’t take my suit, so I only got in up to my knees with C1; but we had a great time.
At first I went in with C1 and he was careful to hold my hand. I would only go as far as he wanted to; which was up to his chest. He tripped a few times and got his face wet, but I was right there to pull him up.
We then got out his sand toys and he enjoyed filling his bucket. After about an hour and a half, I let him venture into the water on his own. He was very careful, and didn’t dare go too deep without me. I was only a few feet away and kept a close eye (don’t worry MIL, I was careful).
I think we’ll have many more beach days this summer. But next time I’m getting in the water and taking some floaties for the boy. I’m grateful that we only live a mile from the beach and that we can walk so easily.
