How many times can I say how lucky we are to live here! Yesterday, Rhett has his first trip to the beach and had the best of times. The weather was beautiful but the water was a little rough due to the wind. I was a little hesitant of the rough seas, but brave little Rhett went right to sleep. Guess it didn’t bother him as much as it did his momma. We headed out to a little island called Wassaw and met a few friends plus Gigi and GrandDaddy. We all anchored our boats and held down the fort for a few hours. With umbrella, beach tent, travel crib, blankets and oh yeah, plenty of sunscreen, we hit the beach with bells on. Fair little Rhett had to be lathered up with sunscreen – he does have two redheads for parents so needless to say, he will never be that super tan beach baby. He loved the wet sand between his toes and the small waves in which Gigi lifted him up to jump over each one. After a couple of fun hours, we hit the water back to the dock for a long deserved boat nap.
First time in the boat Rhett! Lolli and Pop were able to be here to enjoy it with you! You weren’t too sure about your life jacket but you seem to have grown more comfortable with it these days. I don’t blame you, it doesn’t look like the most cozy jacket. We hopped in the boat to take a short ride over to Bonna Bella Marina for dinner. You were such a big boy and sat the table with us in your high chair. The Savannah sunset led us home for an enjoyable evening.
Rhett – we guessed you would probably love the water considering your lengthy time in the bath, but not only did you love it, you didn’t want to get out! EVER! Aunt Colleen came to visit and we took you to the neighborhood pool – boy, did you have a blast! You loved to push yourself off the ground in the pool, resulting in many attempts to dive forward into the water. Not time for that yet, Mr. We need to get a few swimming lessons under our belt before that milestone. We splished and we splashed around and then you took a big nap. Fresh air and sunshine never felt so good.
We joined some friends at their neighborhood bbq/picnic and we had a blast. It was Miss Addison’s big social outing and we were excited to be there with her! Watching the sun set over the marsh and marina was just gorgeous. We continuously count our blessings to be able to enjoy the view so often.
