Sweetpea would make a great full time beach bum. She loved the sun, the sand, the water...wasn't totally sure about the bigger waves, but I'm sure she'd get used to that given time as well. Here are some shots from our vacation - we stayed at a great family friendly place, in a 2 bedroom condo with an ocean view. Between the condo and the beach were a kiddie pool, a more "standard" pool, a lazy river and a smaller pool with a big water slide. With the exception of the big slide, we spent a lot of time at each pool and the beach.
The kiddie pool had a great little play set right in the middle of it. We spent a lot of time here, especially when the heat index reached 104!
Mommy, look at all this sand!!
