I think I have been telling you all that Julianna refused to walk on the beach and forget going near the ocean! No way!
Brian, Julianna and I went to the beach this past Friday and it was a very hot day. No way were we going to not spend the day in the water. "Today was the day" we said to each other...
We brought Julianna down by the water in her chair - and she was happily watching everyone in the water and kept her feet cautiously off the sand, and up on her chair.
I left my canon in the car - the beach was crowded and I was nervous about storing my camera in our tent on the beach out of site from where we were hanging out on the water front. I ended up running it back to the car and took some pictures with my iphone instead. At least I had that so we could have proof Julianna actually went in the water.
Brian and I got her out of her chair - we both grabbed one hand each - and told her it was time to walk on the beach and go in the water. She picked up her feet and was squealing. Then the first wave hit her foot... she slowed down on the squeal... the 2nd wave... and she stopped screaming. The 3rd wave... and she was totally ok with it and saw how much fun we were having... and was saying "Weeeeeeee" when the water hit her feet. Game over. Fear is a distant memory officially. Yes!!
After a few minutes of us holding her hand in the water, she let go and said "I do!" and was fine without us holding her hands in the waves going over her feet. Miss Independent strikes again.
Julianna likes the beach, the ocean the the sand! She even walked on the sand to go get lunch! Hooray us!
Resting quietly after the fun times in the ocean! No nap... but at least it was quiet time.
Have a great day!
