Last week we took Ollie to Marina Beach in Edmonds. Camillo is doing a research project with starfish and has to go back and forth to retrieve and return them. It's a fun little trip to take and Ollie loves it. So does the mommy. We went back again yesterday and I remembered I hadn't posted these photos from the first trip!
Would you just look at that sweet face? His hat is a little too big so it seems to slide over to the side. That paired with his fluorescent pink shorts and we've got ourselves an 80s kid. Also, the tank I wore over my dress had covered those bad girls before we left the house. Not sure what happened with that. Sorry.
We played in the water for a little while, got our toes wet. I think, if we'd let go of his hands, he would have jumped right in - he really loves water. But he can't swim so we didn't let him. ha! After splashing for a bit, we ate a quick picnic lunch and then packed up. I really appreciated that there was a washing station right near the beach. We were able to rinse off and only brought a minimal amount of sand home with us.
Today was a gorgeous day and I'm super grateful for the time we got to spend together as a family. I lovelovelove when we get to try new things together, the three of us. Having a rambunctious boy around has made me more ambitious to get out of the house. Camillo and I are usually kind of homebodies but he makes us feel more adventurous. Thanks, buddy. Love you!
