We have another beach lover in the family! Yay!

I can’t believe it’s taken us this LONG to get to the beach this summer. Oh well, the important thing is that we got there! The beach is always worth it and this was a trip to remember. After all, it was Zach’s FIRST trip to the BEACH!! 

He loved everything about it. The sand, the sun, the ocean, and his little toes in the water. He’s usually happy (most of the time) but I’ve never seen him smiling so much as he did at the beach.

This is the second summer we’ve made a fun trip with our friends, the Blodgett’s and Witte’s. Last summer, Zach was still critical in the NICU and the beach became like therapy for me. This summer, I’m so grateful he’s home, he’s healthy, he’s happy, and the bonus:

He loves the beach as much as we do! Life is GOOD!! :))
