Our Family loves the beach! We spend a majority of our time on the weekends and a couple times a week on it. We are very blessed being a Navy family, because the odds are, we will always have some kind of Ocean to play at. Our son was 4 months the first time he dipped his toes in the ocean and until this year, we havent been able to keep him out of it. This year, he says its too wet and too cold. I think we just put him in the ocean prematurely while the ocean was still cold from the winter. I'm hoping as the ocean warms up he will gradually get back in.
