We had a little hiatus last week and we headed for the beach with my family. It was such a blast. Last time we had the "Big Family Beach Trip" Megan was just 4 months old. So she didn't really get the whole beach experience.
This year.... She soaked it all up!
And she loved every minute of it. She's quite fearless when it comes to water. She'd let the waves wash over her toes and as soon as they started to recede, she'd start chasing them. We had huge waves while we were there so she was overcome with waves several times during her escapades. We were always right there to grab her before she really went tumbling and she always screamed with delight.
She'd even sit at the edge and play in the sand and just laugh when the waves would try to knock her over. One wave totally took her in a few feet - head over heels - and she just laughed and laughed. I was much more panicked than she was.
As for being at the beach with my broken foot... not too bad, just inconvenient. Believe it or not, there were others at the beach with similar bags over their feet as they walked through the sand as well. :^)
I just got back from the Dr.'s and my foot is healing up. I'm in the boot for another week then I get to start transitioning to an athletic shoe. Then in 2 weeks I have another set of x-rays to see how my foot is taking life outside the boot. woohoo!!!!
I have lots of beach pictures and memories to share so I'll try to get them on there later today.
