Cameron's first trip to the ocean

Today, after we enjoyed a fabulous morning of worship at ECBC, we decided to take a picnic lunch out and go to the beach with Cameron for the first time.

It wasn't that long ago that we took Colin down to this same stretch of beach at Isle of Palms, SC for his first view of the Atlantic Ocean. You can check that post out here.

Today, it was Cameron's turn. The biggest difference? Well, Colin was able to go in August and enjoy the surf. Cameron, well, it is cool in January, even in beautiful Charleston, SC. 
So, we kept our coats on....

It was fun to see the boys all play on the beach.

We saw some jelly fish up on the sand...

a few shells that they enjoyed throwing back into the ocean...


lots of birds...

and plenty of wonderful sunshine!

At first, the boys stood a safe distance from the incoming tide, but eventually, the temptation was too much to bear...

Those socks and shoes????
SOAKING WET!


and sandy!!!

We southerners know better...

"Look mom! Stinky socks!"
So, what happens to nasty wet socks once they are removed from your cold, wet feet? They become weapons, of course!

A short, but successful trip and nice memories made.
