A grand day on the beach
July 17, 2011 – All morning, he went over the details again and again: “S, the flower surfboard is for you and the white one is for ME.” The so-called “flower surfboard” is actually a boogie board and the “white surfboard” is E’s board! So here was little e, no wetsuit of his own, never been on a board, figuring he’s going to just hop on papa’s big surfboard and go for a ride while S plays on the boogie board. Sure. Before even trying to stuff him into S’s wetsuit, E walked him down to the water’s edge to check out the surf. Good thing. He immediately declared it “too loud” and ran back up the beach to me where he remained content to play all day, running in and out of camera view, digging in the sand and just generally having a grand day on the beach.
