We are spending this week in a house we rented on Cape Cod with Kate’s family. We planned this vacation back in the fall, so the timing turned out to not be perfect with moving into our house a week before, but with everything going on, it’s still nice to get away and, try at least, not to work for a week.
It’s still technically off-season on the Cape, and the weather is still not great for going in the ocean, but it’s been nice and warm enough to at least go to the beach and play in the sand.
This was really the first time Owen had been to a beach. We lathered him up in SPF 1 million sunblock, got his sun hat and swim diaper, and walked to the beach. Owen loved the wind blowing in his face (my new favorite thing is to blow in his face and watch him laugh). He tolerated his sun hat enough and looked so freaking adorable in it.
We even brought along a small kiddie pool because we thought the water would be cold, and it would give him something to do. He seemed to like splashing in the water.
Then Kate ventured into the somewhat cold water to give Owen a little dip. He was utterly amused by his first experience in the salty water.
And we discovered something else that Owen enjoyed at the beach. We weren’t expecting this one. We plopped him on the sand, and well… you can see the video that Kate’s sister shot:
