Given the constraints of the older siblings, Kayla’s vacation schedule revolved around Spring Break. We were not so keen on taking a baby out of the country so we went as far south as we can within the United States — Hawaii! Waikiki Beach to be exact. What a great place for a baby to get her beach introduction. It was a long flight over but Kayla survived and didn’t make a peep. Ready for some sun?
But due to her baby white skin, her sun exposure is limited by Mom. So we usually have some kind of fort setup around her to keep her out of the sun and away from the sand as much as possible.
Why no sand? Its a beach! Well, that means one thing — eat sand! We do our best but she often gets a handful and babies love to taste everything they get their hands on. Oh well, more fiber in her diet…or something.
A favorite activity is standing in the surf and watching the waves come in and out. Its kind of freaky for a baby. Almost a sense of panic. But after a while she starts to enjoy the rhythm of it and waits for it.
But after getting out of the ocean, she gets to dry off and hang close to Mom or Dad.
Have a look!
Many more days ahead!
