First Beach Trip

We went to the beach a few weekends ago, and it was wonderful to watch Ian experience the sand and ocean for the first time. Ian was beyond excited for the whole trip, which means we both got very little sleep for the weekend! :) The weather was perfect, and it was great to escape for a few days!
View from our balcony. Headed to the beach for the first time. He looks like he is on a serious mission to see the ocean.
The feeling of waves washing over your toes.
Digging in the sand with Grammie. Feeling the wet sand and watching the waves.For some reason, Ian was adamant about making a strawberry pie with Grammie while at the beach. Here he is hard at work. :) Sunrise on the beach.
Enjoying a snack.
Telling Uncle about his morning beach experience.
Wading into the water completely fearless.We didn't get many sandcastles built because someone had more fun stomping on them. :)Kicking in the pool.

Of course we had to take a picture doing Ian's favorite silly face.

A Little of This & A Little of That

I have been MIA in the blog world for a while. Life has been busy lately. Here are some photos of some of the things that have been going on with us.
Meeting (and hugging) the Chick-Fil-A cow at an Express game.Watching some fantastic fireworks at the end of the baseball game. They were a bit too loud for Ian.Playing with silly string at Colt's birthday party.Enjoying some delicious cake and ice cream at the party.Transforming into a superhero.Flying to the rescue!
