Life's a Beach

Like her mama, many years ago, Emme seemed to enjoy her first trip to the Jersey Shore this weekend. We went to the grandparents on Saturday and enjoyed a BBQ and a sleepover before heading to the beach Sunday morning. The Empress did NOT think sand was such a great thing; at least not touching her precious feet. She thought having her feet rinsed with a watering can was just grand and didn't hesitate to ask for such pampering. I think this was a disappointment to her grandpa who brought his BIG shovel to bury her in the sand. She wasn't too keen on the water but it was quite rough to the point where even the adults didn't go in so that may have been a factor. She really seemed to love watching the ocean waves rolling in and serenity of the atmosphere and asked twice for someone to walk with her by the water's edge. All in all it was a beautiful day and a success. Emme had a great weekend and so did I.

Last year Jami did not like the beach, especially the sand touching her feet. This year (at 3) she LOVED it...she sat in the sand & built castles...likes the ocean water (LOVES the pool)..but basically did a 180 on the whole beach experience.

Glad you had a nice time.

That looks like so much fun! She is an adorable little beach bunny.

She is so adorable in that swimsuit! My youngest didn't even like grass on her barefeet when she first came home -- now she freely runs around naked without any regard for her environment. I bet next time Emme will dig right into the sand.

Can she get any cuter? It was like that at first with Sally and now she is a mermaid, loving everything about the sea.
