The past two days I mentioned that we’ve taken Eva to the beach and into the water to swim. However, I did not provide any photographic evidence of this. Luckily I have the Sanyo Xacti EC1 and it is waterproof. So we were able to get some shots while in the water.
Eva just loves the water, we just take her right in, dip her toes a little and then up to her knees and we progressively get her into the water and hold her close to us so she stays warm. She ends up enjoying getting right in.
Spinning her in circles is one of her favorite things. She also likes being lifted so high quickly and splashing back to the water.
We worked on Eva’s dexterity and ability to pick things up by passing her rocks and shells that she could hold and pinch. Luckily she didn’t try to put too many in her mouth. She enjoyed her purple pail and shovel as well.
With all this beach time this beach time Eva gets some sun. We make sure that she does not get too much and make sure to slather on sunscreen, make her wear a cover up and hats as well. We also got her a pop up sunscreen/tent. We used it for the first time yesterday. I threw out the directions to put it back into the carry case. Who needs ’em!
I was wrong…
I went back to the house to shower and do a little on the computer. Next thing I know, Allison is at the door and tells me that everyone at the beach has tried to get the thing back in the bag with no luck. So I went over to get this taken care of. It should have been simple but I had a huge audience full of only the peanut gallery. Everyone being “helpful” You know what is the most helpful to me, shutting the heck up. Overall it was funny because it was that sort of frustration that isn’t life threatening but rather a bit annoying. I finally did wrestle the thing into some semblance of a circle and shoved it back into the bag. Was it done right? Probably not. Was it done? Yep!
