Today was Kayeligh's first trip to the beach & she LOVED it!!! At first I wasn't sure how she would fare with the sand, since it took her about 2 weeks to adjust to walking on grass or mulch at the park. And add to that the fact that she hates having dirty hands, I was expecting a bit of a struggle. But I think it was love at first sight!!
As soon as I put her little feet on the sand, she was intrigued. She squished her little toes right into it and started running around. Then she picked up some sand in her hands & I could see her taking in the texture of it as she let it slide through her fingers. Then she dug around for a while as she sat in it. When we covered her feet & legs with the sand she kicked it around as she laughed with delight - she couldn't get enough of it!! I'm only sorry we didn't have any shovels or buckets to make sandcastles!!
Needless to say, I am VERY excited about the onset of summer - I think we're going to have a great time at the beach!!
Here's some pictures of Kayleigh exploring the sand with her BFF, Kira :)
