Remembering Summer (#1)
Kiddo in the waves at Ocean City, Maryland
This was the first time we'd been to the beach since Kiddo had his feeding tube put in last year. We weren't sure if the sand would irritate the area around the tube so we gave Kiddo the choice of picking a different (non-beach) vacation spot. He voted to go to the beach anyway. So we covered the tube with several layers of gauze and taped it up really good, then sent him off to play. It didn't end up keeping ALL the sand out but it did a good enough job, and Kiddo said the tube wasn't irritated. Yay!
The waves weren't huge but the riptide was killer. We found out later that this was due to a hurricane hundreds of miles to the south. The weather was fantastic though, and we had lots of fun making sandcastles and digging trenches for the water to surround them. I LOVE THE BEACH!
