The Beach

We had so much fun this past weekend at the beach. Leify was a little darling and slept like a champ in his pack-n-play that Anne got him. That thing has been a life saver, not only did he sleep in it the first 3 months of his life, but we can take it anywhere and he loves it!

We roamed around Longbeach on Saturday morning... walked along the tourist strip and checked out the shops; then we went back to the condo ate lunch and then went for a walk along the beach. We bundled Leify up in the jogger and put the rain fly down so he wouldn't be wipped by the wind. Then we went swimming! We had the whole pool to ourselves! It was so much fun and Leify absolutley loved it, he kicked and kicked. He also figured out that he can get his feet into his mouth so he spent a lot of time chewing on his toes while we were there.

We also saw a bald eagle while we where there...check this guy out.

Leify has started to inch himself up, he made his way about 3/4 of the way up the blanket. He sticks his butt way up into the air and grunts. He reminds me of a little inch worm. Hehe.

We watched movies...cuggled...and just enjoyed being together and being at the beach. It was a great weekend!!

I saw several dogs running along the beach and it broke my heart. Thor loved the beach, agh, I miss that little guy.

Leify is completly in love with my parents bad and my mom's bath robe. Here is taking a nap in total bliss.

Leif made me promise I wouldn't put this picture on the blog before I took it.....but I have to break it. He tried these glasses on in one of the shops... It's too funny. It kills me. He's my Elton John.


  1. OH Wow! I so miss the beach! Luckies! Your weekend looked like a blast. Thats my idea of relaxation! It looks like so much fun! Don't worry about us not being here when you come. It will probably be a while before they call Tim out. They've only called out 1 guy since Tim has been layed off. So we are good! :) I can't wait to see you guys!

  2. That is an awesome eagle picture! And looks and sounds like you guys had such a great time...I have to admit, I'm a little jealous...I REALLY miss the beach. But the next time we go out there (Christmas maybe?)we should take our little ones to the beach!!! :) Even though it would be cold....

  3. p.s. I'm impressed Leify liked the pool...did he like it right away? We've been wanting to get Aspen in a pool...but there hasn't been an opportunity yet. I think she'll like it...I hope! :) Love you guys and can't wait to see you in 2 weeks!
