These pictures are from the Squad’s first time in the Atlantic Ocean. We were up in Delaware. Yes, I know it is odd to live in Florida, and go on vacation to the beach in Delaware, but Rehoboth Beach is really nice. At first, the kids (being used to the Gulf) were scared of the loud waves, but by the second day they were loving the beach.
As a bonus for his grandparents, Ian learned how to hug while we were up there. He will throw his arms around your neck and put his head on your shoulder and say “awwww”. It is very sweet.
Here is something strange. We stopped at a rest area in South Carolina on the way home and we let the twins run around, because they had already been cooped up for seven hours in the car that day. It was at this rest area that we realized at 14 months old it was the first time our kids had touched grass. I guess it is because the grass down here is so gross (and fire ants and snakes), I just never put my kids in the yard and let them go. I wonder what other everyday things they haven’t experienced yet?
