Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Beach Trip {TNAT}

Beach Trip {TNAT}

This weekend will be one of recovery for me!!  On Wednesday, Charis and I went to the BEACH!!!  It was so wonderful.  The weather was gorgeous and the humidity low!!  L.V. (a friend from church) organized the trip.  We went to Cape Henlopen.  I woke up on Wednesday at 6:30 because I had to do laundry, which was finished and packed before our ride picked us up-PTL!!  We pulled onto the Beltway around 8:40 and 2 hours and 45 minutes later we were at Cape Henlopen.  Unfortunately, I had forgotten our lunches, but thankfully our friends were willing to share.  I was able to swim in the ocean ALONE as well because a lovely lady from church offered to hold Charis while I swam.  (Charis even fell asleep on this lady.)  Afterwards, we went out to eat at a pizza restaurant and then parted ways.

This trip had a few firsts for Charis.

  • First time at the beach.  At first she was not sure about everything, but gradually warmed up.
  • First time playing in sand.  I bought her some sand toys for her birthday.
  • First time in the Ocean.  Mama held VERY tightly onto her and she gradually began to like the water
  • First time being breastfed at the beach.  I'm not sure how much sand she also swallowed, but that did not stop her from nursing.
  • First time eating pizza.  Well, I think more of it ended up on the floor than in her tummy.
Thankfully, everyone who went on the trip had a safe, uneventful time.  Though there were a few sunburns, including me, but Charis did NOT get burnt.
