Nathan and I finally took Levi to the ocean! On Friday we drove over to Long Beach to spend the night. Our hotel was right on the beach, and we got a suite with a separate room for Levi; it was great. When we first arrived at the beach, Levi plopped right down in the sand and dug his hands in. It only took two minutes for him to get sand everywhere on his body: hair, ears, diaper . . . everywhere! And he was so happy!
One of the local landmarks is this museum. It's more of a gift shop than a museum, but there's lots of weird things inside. Nathan used to come here as a kid when he was visiting his grandmother, and apparently it hasn't changed much.
Building our own sand castle. Nathan constructed it, and Levi knocked it down. In the end Levi wandered away, and Nathan was able to finish his creation.
I was afraid Levi woudn't like the water--he's such a cautious kid--but he loved it every time a wave rolled over his feet! Below I captured the wave that got all three of us wet.
We're going to have to do this again!!!
