Firsts: Beach

We’ve been super busy visiting friends and family throughout our visit home, but one of the things I wanted to do most was bring Londyn to the beach to see the ocean for the first time.
Londyn’s obvious love of anything wet made the this trip much anticipated! With only a few days left in Ca, Mom and I headed over to Paradise Cove for an early lunch and some time in the sand in between Londyn’s nap. Luckily we got there before the crowds and made some unforgettable memories.

A successful trip since we had only one small melt down at the table when the food wasn’t comin fast enough {read: mom hurry up and feed me!!} and the weather was California perfect.

I forget how much time I spent at the beach growing up and miss the ocean breeze, salty smell, and windy road that leads to the Pacific. This trip reminds me that creating experiences for Londyn is important. He’s just getting to the age {although I’m sure he won’t remember this trip} where he can begin to take in and interact with his environment.

Although it goes without saying, annual trips to California {as well as the Pacific coast} will definitely be on the list of family traditions!
