Yesterday we celebrated my husbands 30th with a trip to Long Beach in Long Island. Ivy is no stranger to the beach. Last summer, when she was only a few months old we took her to Sandy Hook a few times when we were down at my moms. She didn’t go in the water, just chilled in her bouncy chair in her little sun dome tent.
She also ventured into the ocean for the first time in her life;
The water was so calm and warm she loved it. I love the way this picture came out with the sun rays beaming down on us. Who knew a blackberry could take such nice pictures?
In April we went to Key West and spent a lot of time at the beach there. All the fresh air was great for Ivy and she loved going in the ocean with mom & dad;
And then yesterday we went to Long Beach. The water was way too cold for her to even dip her tiny toes into (trust me both Jon and I braved it and it was bone chilling ). But she still had a great time playing in (and trying to eat) the sand;
I think we are going to have a fun summer chilling at the beach this year!
