We had never taken my mom to one of our favorite beaches, Redondo Beach. *GASP* So, Marcus and I made sure to remedy that problem as soon as my mom arrived.
The minute our toes hit the sand we took the obligatory stand-by-the-ocean picture. Marcus was not interested in the slightest, he was ready to play.
Marcus showed Grandma the ins and outs of the sand sifter.
Then Grandma had the little man hunting for sea shells.
There was a quick break for some scooping and filling.
I convinced Marcus to chase the waves, and then be chased.
He is seriously the happiest when he's outside.
Marcus has never had the opportunity to make a snow angel. What's the next best thing? A sand angel. Grandma demonstrated the proper way to make said angel. Marcus tried his best to make one, too. However, his little arms and legs couldn't quite figure it all out.
No trip to the ocean is adequate without a stroll down the beach.
We couldn't have asked for a better day of surf and sand and sun. My heart could not have been any more full.
Grandma, thanks for another wonderful visit. We hope you enjoyed every minute as much as we did!
