Beach Baby

This past week I got the chance to take Taylor to the beach for the first time.

Lynn, aka Lynnie, aka Pooh, aka Gigi, aka Wynnie, aka we're not exactly for sure what she's going to be called yet, invited us to stay with her while she was there. For those of you who don't know, Pops and Lynnie are Taylor's Godparents. They have become like family to us, and it helps since we miss our families living close by.

Some of our life group girls were able to come with us, oh the joys of homeschooling. Two of them happen to be wonderfully gifted at taking pictures. And my baby just happens to be good at having her picture taken, so the girls gladly consented to snap a 'few' photos of sweet baby Tay. All these photos were taken by Haley Richter. Yes, she is quite talented. So, enjoy Taylor's first beach trip in pictures. Just for fun, I'll guess what Taylor is thinking and provide captions.

"Wow, it's bright out here. Why are you putting me down?"

"Um, what did you set me on? Maybe I should sit really still and be careful?"

"I guess I should just pick some of it up to investigate further."

"Ick, it feels really weird in my hands. No, seriously, really weird."

"Ugh, get it off my knee. Why is it on my knee?"

"Aw mom, I can't get it off my hands. Why is it sticking to me?"

"Like it? Do you see my face? Do I look like I like it?"

"Okay, super bored now. Can we go in?"

"Let's check out the water now."

"What is that? I'm not so sure about this."

"Um, no. Do you know how cold that is? Why do you get to wear a jacket?"

"I think I'll just play over here on my blanket where it's safe."

"It is fun to walk in this stuff."

"Mommy, what big feet you have."

"This is what I'm talking about. This is where the fun is."

Happy beach trip, Taylor!


  1. Look at those chunky knees! I love all your captions - they fit her faces perfectly :).

  2. Adorable! Looks like you had a great time! She's precious.
