|Next stop: Ocean Isle Beach!|
|Wake me up when we get there!|
|Thanks to Mimi and YaYa, we were able to pass the time|
in the car with multiple viewings of Classical Baby!
|Ready for our first day at the beach!|
|First dip in the ocean!|
|After taking his first steps on June 22,|
Hamilton got lots of practice walking on the beach.
|Happy Birthday, America!|
|Patriotic rubber ducky from Lexi.|
|Hamilton spent most of the week in a towel and/or swimsuit.|
|One of many wagon rides to the beach.|
|It was all fun and games until|
Hamilton was no longer the only cargo on board.
|Get me out of here!|
|Sporting a Volunteer Tradition hat (by our friend, Mason Jones).|
|Hamilton had to wear Daddy's hat|
when we forgot the baby beach hat at the beach house.
|My name is Hamilton. I am a Leo. I enjoy long walks on the beach.|
|Hamilton does not know how to play Bocce Ball,|
but he loved playing with the game balls.
|Naps on the beach. Such a rough life!|
|Hamilton said, "Oooooh!," every time the waves rolled in.|
|All smiles at the beach!|
|Soaking up the last minutes of our final day at the beach.|
|Hamilton reflecting on his first beach experience.|
sometimes nothing is the right thing to do.
Doing nothing for an entire week
reminded us of the one thing we need to
remember and be grateful for every day:
...it truly is.
