Sun, Sand and Surf

The wonderful thing about living in Florida - even though Orlando is smack dab in the middle of the state - is you're never very far from the beach. And after a cooler-than-normal winter, we were glad to welcome beach weather! We love going to Cape Canaveral National Seashore near Titusville because it's unspoiled and there's plenty of room to roam. Also, if there is a space shuttle about to launch, you can see it on a launchpad, which is always a spectacular site.

Last year when we went to the beach, Amelia loved the water but wasn't so sure about the sand. This year, she is all about the sand - scooping, shoveling, digging, burying her feet. With Jason's help, she built sandcastles (which were really more like mini sand dunes) and looked for shells. She's so good about wearing her sunscreen and was so patient while we slathered it on and even wore her hat for awhile. To quote Amelia's swimming teacher, it's never too early to start teaching little ones about sun safety!

Some things never change! Did Jason try to eat the sand too?
