We just returned from a wonderful week in South Carolina with family. We spent our time digging in sand, riding bikes, and eating ice cream cones (among other things). It was a fantastic way to relax and unwind, especially now as we prepare to welcome a new family member in just ten short weeks (eeek!).
This was our first real beach trip now that we are parents, and boy have things changed. Magazines are out, sandcastle-shaped buckets are in. Swimsuits are chosen for function over fashion – will my toddler be able to rip off this top too easily? Will this stay in place while I am chasing him down the beach?
