It’s FINALLY hot here! It’s been warm, just not HOT. The past few days have been in the upper 80s and sunny, which is exactly how I like it. Any day is made better with a dose of sunshine!
Sunday, after church, we went home for a nap and then hit the beach for the afternoon. It was absolutely beautiful! It was nice and warm, but there was just enough of a breeze, so it wasn’t too hot.
Turner is OBSESSED with the ocean! The second we put our stuff down, he made a beeline! We would let him play for a few minutes, carry him back to our blanket, and he would walk back to the ocean. This happened over and over. It’s amazing what entertains a toddler.
We were finally able to distract him for a little bit and play catch. Then he crawled around and found shells to pick up and throw. He always wants to move onto the next activity. He keeps me on my toes, that’s for sure!
I miss the beach days where I would pop Turner in the carrier and just plop him on my blanket and he wasn’t able to move. He is quite busy at the beach these days!
Now that our pool is open, we’re able to take a quick walk and spend some time there. It’s MUCH easier than the beach. Last year, I put Turner in his float and we would just hang out in the big pool. This year is a whole new world! He was able to go in the kiddy pool and loved it! Of course, that means I have to go in the kiddy pool. Luckily, no one else was there, so I didn’t feel like I was soaking in a urinal.
I am SO excited for summer with this munchkin. He is getting to be more fun (and busy) by the day. There are definitely days that I wish I could just take a nap or go to the beach and not have to worry about anyone but myself. But, this morning, I read something that said “you will never be this loved again. So on the days you’re feeling touched out, stressed out, and depleted, remember that you’ll never be this loved again.” I am so thankful to have Turner with me every second of every day!
