As summer draws to a end it feels like we’ve never really started summer. The heat the past two weeks has finally gotten warm enough to call it HOT. The beach is a great place to be which is a rare treat for the Pacific Northwest.
While with family this past weekend we finally got a chance to hit the beach. This summer hasn’t quite been normal for us, we lost two generations in the past 4 months so to say that we had a normal summer is an understatement but never the less it was so nice to enjoy the beach.
I wish I could have someone observe us all at play and take photos the way I do. I’m always missing in these photos but I know I was there. I watched them through my lens, together enjoying the day.
We love to find beaches with playgrounds. While its fun to play in the sand, my kids love to swing and climb on playground gear. With the sand, they are safe and can even run around with no shoes just having fun.
Nothing beats running free like a toddler. Getting out to play is important and playing at the beach is easy. The extra resistance of the sand creates for a great workout, both for kids and us parents.
Moving from the much cooler beaches to here in Southern California beaches has been a big change.
