That day was relatively cold, so we came back the next day (which wasn't much warmer) to try again. Although it wasn't much better, I did have something in hand that made it great. My beach tent!
I tell you, this tent (here's the link) is the best $40 I've ever spent. Even though it's a little hard to put together by myself, it's awesome if you've got an extra set of hands. I was going to buy a baby tent just for Adalin, but those were running around $25-35, so I figured it would be worth the extra ten bucks to have some added space. I am so glad I did! Not only did the three of us and Adalin all fit, but we had a huge beach bag and the car seat in there. Adalin still had some space to crawl around too. I absolutely love it. There's also a front that zips up so when it's Adalin's nap time we can keep her contained.
Adalin and I also had our matching floppy hats on:
She absolutely loved the sand! She did have a little mishap crawling down a hill. Other than that, she had a blast. We enjoyed the pier too, but didn't brave the water yet. I'm thinking we'll save that for next month when it's a little warmer.
I hope you enjoyed these pictures as much as I do! I'm so excited that we've started our beach trips for the summer, and it's only March! I can already tell that I'm going to have a beach bum on my hands. Happy Friday!
God Bless ♥ Vi
