Day at the Lake/Beach at Greenbrier

Today Adam and I met our group of other moms and 2-year-olds at Greenbrier to enjoy the beautiful lake and beach. Well there was one dad because one of our friends just had her 2nd baby and her husband was playing "Mr. Mom" this week with their 2-year-old while she was home with the newborn. We had such a great time and the kids loved it that we all decided to make this one of our regular outings. We already have plans to go next week. You can't beat $3 to go to the beach all day and it is only 15 minutes away. When we got there I knew exactly what would happen and it did happen. As soon as I put Adam in the sand he started yelling "EWWW EWWW EWWW!" He hates getting his feet dirty and this he thought was very very dirty. Luckily I brought us both beach chairs so he enjoyed sitting in those. Actually all the kids enjoyed sitting in them. I carried him down to the water and he got used to the feeling of the water and sand beneath his toes. He wasn't loving the sand on his feet, but he warmed up to it. He would stand in one place and dig with his big shovel in the sand. We put our beach chairs at the water line and he loved just sitting there with his toes in the water and relaxing. It was actually great because I could actually sit and relax at the beach without chasing him around. We both loved it. When he woke up from his nap this afternoon he said he wanted to go back to the beach. 

Here is Adam leery of stepping off the towel and into the sand:

If we go again next week hopefully he will be more used to the sand for your trip to the Beach. We had a great time.

Looks like a wonderful time! I wish we lived closer so we could join in on the fun too! :(

And btw, that's too cute about Adam and the sand!
