While in Hawaii we took the Little Monster to the beach a few times, and it was a huge hit!  After slathering on the sunscreen we plopped him in the sand and he… just sat there.  For a solid 5 minutes.  It’s the longest he’s sat still since he started crawling!  Then he decided the sand wasn’t so bad-in fact, it’s pretty tasty!  So he ate a bunch of it, and went in the ‘big bathtub’ (Uncle Max’s phrase) with daddy to rinse off.  He was SO HAPPY, and could have stayed in all day, but the water was chilly and I was having a heart attack with every wave, so he had to come in and eat some more sand.  We’ll definitely be finding some beaches to go to this summer!
