Among other things we have been dealing with some family emergencies. John found out that one of his sisters has cancer and his other sister here is going through some rough times. One of her daughters came to town at my request and has been staying with us. Today we took a break and went to the beach for a few hours. Benjamin's first beach trip.
Benjamin wasn't too sure about the huge ocean at first but he quickly warmed to it.
And had great fun digging big holes.
We did a little shopping.
And stopped to eat on the way home. This is a very rare picture, when he is taken out of his car seat he never stays asleep. Guess the beach wore him out.
We had a great day and no one got sunburned. I worry about that with my little red head.
