This was Ally's first trip to the beach. I thought she was going to absolutely love it. Here's her first impression.
After letting us know that she did not like the sand on her feet, she sat on a blanket and had a snack and got used to the sand, the sound of waves and wide open space.
After a while I sat her on the edge of the blanket with a shovel and pail. She loved filling the pail with sand.
Later we moved her down near the water and let her see the difference between the warm, dry sand and the cool, wet sand. She enjoyed filling the pail again.
She eventually helped with the sand castles and enjoyed watching the waves and sea gulls. She ended up having a great time.
It was a perfect day to play and relax...
To breath deep and enjoy the beauty God created.
The perfect way to capture the last little bit of summer.
