This week, HG and I spent a few days visiting with my family who were vacationing in Fort Myers. Hatley-Grace got to spend time with her great Grandparents, Great Aunt and Uncle, and second cousins. This was the first time we have spent much time at the beach since she has been walking. I was hopeful she would like the beach because I love spending time soaking up the sun. I was not disappointed.
We have a little beach bug! She absolutely loved the sand, the ocean and jumped right into playing.
One of her favorite things to do was fill a bucket or watering can and walk it to another part of the beach and spill it out.
Digging and filling up objects was fun too!
She enjoyed trucks as well. One of my favorite parts of our trip was watching her play and observe her older second cousins.
Hatley-Grace had no fear when it came to swimming. In the ocean she squealed with delight at the waves. In the pool, she hung onto a small inter tub and kicked her way around the pool.
Her sweet curls!
We watched the sun set over the Gulf both nights we were there. It was such a reminder of God's beauty and majesty.
Even the wind, clouds and some rain couldn't keep us off the beach the last morning.
I think my girl and I are going to talk Daddy into lots of beach vacations soon in the years to come.
