FIELD TRIP TO THE BEACH

Yesterday was our playgroup through the Whatcom Center for Early Learning, and we had our last summer field trip. We went to Birch Bay and played on the beach. Max was a little hesitant about the sand and water (and bright sun!), but we both enjoyed watching the other kiddos...especially our friend Dylan!


Max wasn't too sure about the therapist putting sand on his feet. (We are working through some sensory issues and this is part of his "therapy.) But he didn't completely freak out, so that's progress!















Dylan was soooo funny in the sand! He was dirty from head to toe!

(I felt so bad because Max had a major blow out when we got there and we borrowed Dylan's extra outfit....which left Dylan very dirty for the drive home. Sorry buddy! Thanks again Kristy!)













Dirty Dylan and his beautiful and VERY pregnant mommy Kristy enjoying the beach!
















There always is "snack time" at playgroup. Max is the only one in the group who cannot yet eat orally, but we still try and involve him. How cute is he in his plaid hat gumming this graham cracker!?! Actually I thought he was just gumming it, but then I heard a crunch and realized his tooth was now big enough to take a bite! He quickly spit out the cracker...I think he was a little confused!

Hi Amy and Max,

Dylan sure did have a good time with you Max! And we absolutely love the photos. I particularly like the one of Max eating the cracker.

We had a great time with you. Can't wait to see you again.

Lots of Love,

Kristy and Dylan

How cute! Don't worry Max. You aren't the only one who doesn't like things on there feet. There was a good reason why someone invented shoes! When I was a baby my mom could put me on a blanket and I'd never get off of it because I couldn't stand the grass! Things change with time buddy, just hang in there and keep trying.
Take care-
