At the Beach #1

We are now home from Florida! I have tons and tons of pictures, and I'm working on going through them and posting some a little (or a lot) at a time! Here's the first big batch.

Saturday while the guys watched the NFL Draft, Becky and I took the kids to Clearwater Beach. It was hot and breezy, and finding parking was insane. We were a sight to see once we did find parking - trying to get 2 kiddos, a cooler, and a few beach bags onto the beach. We had to use our double stroller to get to the beach, but then we had to carry it the rest of the way to the little cabana umbrella thingie that we rented, because pushing a stroller on sand doesn't work too well!

Natalie really enjoyed sitting at the edge of the water and getting wet that way. She also liked standing in it and calling the waves to her. It was really cute, but I wasn't able to get any pictures of that.

She also got great enjoyment out of drinking from a big water bottle all by herself. In fact, that may have been the highlight of her day. Go figure! We noticed the evening that we got in that she now has her own word for "water" and it sounds like "mah-neh." We heard that word A LOT during our vacation, and she definitely made the connection between ocean water, drinking water, pond water, rain water, etc. "Mah-neh" was a common topic with Nat. :)
