Today we took the kids to one of my favorite places on earth. Going places with kids is so different from traveling around childless, so I was a little concerned that our first trip to the beach would be a bust. I needn't have been worried; Atticus and Norah had a blast!
The most popular activity by far was playing with a plastic bucket of water in the sand. Although Paul and I had anticipated fun pouring water out of the bucket or putting sand in it, we hadn't envisioned how much fun the kids would have blowing bubbles in it. Silly babies.
Our holiday yesterday was super low-key and lazy and the kids both slept through the barrage of fireworks being shot off all around our house.
