Life is a beach

We live about a 5 minute walk from the beach in Goa. And when you look at the pictures above, you would think that we would have been at the beach every single day. But for some reason or the other we kept getting distracted and only made it there about half a dozen times. But when we did make it there, Aiden went absolutely nuts. He just loved being on the beach, period. As soon as we got there he would make a mad dash to the water, as if it were a swimming pool. Within a few minutes he'd be soaking wet and we'd have to change his clothes. If we let him, he would play with his beach toys all day. In his excitement, he would treat sand like confetti and throw it everywhere and at everyone. He ate a bunch of sand as well but didn't seem to mind it at all except when it got in his eyes. At the end of the day it was quite an ordeal to clean it out of his curly top. As you can probably tell his curls were more pronounced in Goa than normal. We think it's because of the humidity in the air. Everyday was above 90 degrees with 90% humidity. If there's one one thing that he didn't like about going to the beach, then it was the part about the sunscreen.
