Beach Time!

29 May

Today, we took Zoey and Mindy (our dog) to the beach for the first time. It isn’t the type of beach you are thinking of. The water was brown and it was a river instead of an ocean, but there was still sand and it was still a lot of fun. Mindy had never been in water deep enough to swim in before, so it was a wonderful surprise to see that she knew how to swim by instinct. I really wish that we had recorded video of her fetching her toy in the water and swimming back to us. We did, however record a little video of us hanging out in the water.

Believe it or not, Zoey actually loved the water. She had fun splashing and kicking her legs. She can even float (I was paranoid and still held on to her, though). She only started to shout when my husband pulled out my phone and began to record video. This, of course is a very regular occurence. Zoey can smile and coo, but the second we pull out a camera, she will begin to shout or frown. We have so much video of her doing nothing at all, just because she stops doing whatever she is doing when the camera comes out.

Mindy and my husband swam together. Today was such a great “family experience” for us.

Next year, we plan to go to a beach-beach. One with bluer water and an ocean. Zoey should be able to walk by that time. Can’t wait!
