We took Stella to the beach for the first time this weekend and she LOVED it! Her Aunt Caroline, Uncle Daniel and Aunt Kate were along to help corral a very adventurous toddler and we had a blast. Her Aunt Kate even sacrificed her birthday to join us! Stella thought the waves were the coolest thing ever and would just laugh hysterically when they splashed her in the face. It was a pretty strong wave day, but luckily we'd borrowed a friend's life jacket, so I felt much better when she'd try to evade our grip. She also enjoyed playing in the sand, then going and washing her hands off in the surf, over and over again. Another favorite was destroying her Daddy's sand castles and dumping mud on both of us. Most of the best pictures were captured by the official paparazzi, (her Aunties), so when I get those, I'll be sure to post more documents of the day! But here she is destroying her Daddy's sand castles, much to his dismay.
