Beach Baby...Not so much.

We decided to go out to North Myrtle Beach today for a day of fun! We felt like we deserved a fun, stress-free day after the last month. We had already planned on going out to a shop on the way to NMB that sells Minnetonka Moccasins. I have had a pair for several years and the insoles were in dismal shape so I wanted to replace them. I wear them as houseshoes all the time and love them. I did get a pair with outer soles this time so I can wear them outside. Yes, I'm that strange. So after stopping to get my moccasins we headed on out to the beach!
I don't think we could have picked a better day! It was partly cloudy and it wasn't super hot. There was a breeze coming in off the ocean. It was perfect weather for a beach trip.
We tried to talk up going to the beach to get Chloe Jo excited, but she balked at the first touch of the sand. She is such a neat-freak! She never did warm up to the sand.
She also didn't like the water at first. She loves her kiddie pool and the bath, but the ocean scared her. I understand that. The water could have knocked her down if we weren't holding her hand.
She did finally warm up to the water and enjoyed putting her feet in it.
Until it came halfway up her calf. Then she didn't like it anymore.
We had a great trip to the beach today! And if I'm going to be completely honest, this trip will last me for a while. I really hate the sand. It's too messy...and I have no idea why Chloe Jo is so OCD.

Sad that CJ doesn't like the beach. Maybe she'll grow into it.
