All my life I grew up on the water. The area of Connecticut we live in is bordered by Long Island Sound, but for us it is still going to the beach. Where sand, meets water… to me that is the beach.
It is like a lifeline for me.
As a kid we would ride our bikes down there, and spend hours upon hours just playing on the beach, playground, in the water, and collecting shells. To me it is something I really want my children to have too, and while they are way too young to go solo, they are lucky I still love the beach so much!
This past weekend we took Addie to the beach for the first time. She was 8 weeks old the day before we went on our little mini trip, so I thought as long as we keep her out of the sun in the stroller most of the time, we would be alright. Plus we really were only going to look for rocks that I need for a craft project with the older kids.
So I took a ton of pictures, and even got in front of the camera myself. I seem to be the one behind the camera virtually all the time, so my husband took it from me to snap a couple shots of Addie and Mommy on the beach.
I hope you enjoy them!
