The Beach In February

On Monday, we decided to take a little trip to the Puget Sound. Aubryn had never seen a body of water bigger than a swimming pool, so I was excited to see her experience the ocean for the first time. At first she was scared,  and then in awe, and by the time we left, she was in love. She even forgot how dirty throwing rocks and all that sand made her hands. And that, my friends, is saying something. This girl cannot stand dirty hands.

At one point, she picked up ever single rock within reaching distance and threw it back into the ocean. And then she sighed. Taking care of the environment is hard work. 

Slowly but surely, she warmed up to the waves and eventually stood in the water with us and let the waves come up onto her boots. Then she wanted to swim in it.

This little lady is quite the explorer. She wanted to see, touch, climb on everything.

And then we just took a lot of pictures of beautiful wood.

And this is the moment I died!

We have been having so much fun exploring our new home, especially with our little girl in tow. Things that have become normal to us are new and exciting to her and she reminds me to look a little closer and enjoy those small moments. Every day, she reminds me that life is beautiful.
