Since HG is still so young, we worked the beach trips into her schedule. She took one of her morning naps at the beach (8:30-10), and spent some awake time at the beach in the afternoon (4:15-6). One day I tried a little longer time at the beach in the morning, and she got a little toasty and had rosy cheeks later that day...Mama fail :)
HG loved meeting new family on this trip. She would just stare and listen to my family, and coo back, like she was talking to them and visiting like a sweet little girl. We had a pool at our house, and she went swimming with her Mimi one time. She didn't fuss, so I guess that means she likes the water, or is still undecided on the topic.
We stopped on the way home in Savannah to visit some friends from seminary. This was a sweet blessing to our souls to be around good friends who have been transitioning into full-time ministry as well. What a special group of people we know from Covenant Seminary, we have been so encouraged by their friendship.
