Happy Friday! I’m off work today and couldn’t be happier! I kicked off a two-day break with a trip to the beach yesterday with Johannes, my sister, and my niece. We had SO much fun. At first, I was thinking we were crazy to take a two-year-old and a 3-year-old to the beach for the day, but they were both so well behaved on the beach. I think the key was taking lots of beach toys. Johannes played with them for almost 4 hours and was happy as can be. (P.S. HomeGoods has some really cute, fun beach toys…like cupcake and ice cream sets, which both the kids loved.) The water was ice cold, so literally nobody on the beach was in the water (which also made it easier with two toddlers). We thought for sure they’d crash in the car on the way home, but it didn’t start off that way.
