Trip to the Beach

3 weeks ago (time has flown!) we went to the beach together. It was Saturday afternoon and we had been busy around the house. We planned to leave a few hours earlier, but did other things instead, and so it looked like we'd just go to the nearby state park since it was so close. Around 4pm Martin said we should just we jumped in the car and went!

Its a little over an hour drive to Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes, DE. As we drove into the park, we passed by the lines of cars full of people leaving. Apparently no one was staying at the beach over dinner! We grabbed subs at Wawa on the way in to the park, so we ended up having dinner on the beach with very minimal distractions, aside from more people leaving!
We've been doing so much this summer with so many extended family members and friends, that it was one of the first times we'd gone and done something, just the three of us! It felt like a vacation, even though it was only a few hours.

Emma enjoyed being at the beach, as in, she liked that we were outside. She wasn't quite sure what to make of the beachy things like sand and surf.

Example number one: her feet in the wet sand:

That is not a happy face.

Example number two: wave comes in and Emma lifts her feet and swings from our hands.

She only managed to get one foot up for this picture!

Overall, however, she did have fun...and so did we!
