After a bit of a hiatus, here I am! We went on a wonderful vacation to North Topsail Beach, NC last week and it was a fabulous break from work and daily life. The four of us rented a house right on the beach and had a great time. James and Logan ended up loving the beach, while Mac and I are still more reserved about it. While I was a beach bum kind of baby, as an adult, all the sand and sunscreen and salty air kind of annoy me. But I sucked it up and everyone was happy.
Logan thoroughly enjoyed throwing himself into the sand, particularly after getting a fresh coat of sunscreen. How else would he get so much sand coverage? Children's sunscreen is really glue.
James took a day or so to warm up to going in the water, but once he did, he quickly turned into a daredevil. My mom says that Travis, my older brother, was always more reserved in the water, while I was diving into the bath tub from 6 months on and jumping off the high dive at 2 years old. I think James is definitely more like Travis and Logan is more like me in that respect. Now that the boys are taking baths together and Logan isn't so restricted by his baby tub, he's always going head first into the water. Talk about a major heart attack for his mother.
