In July, Jesse and I went on an adventure with my mother-in-law, Connie, to Cowan's Gap state park. We spent the afternoon by the lake. What made this trip especially special, was the fact that this was Jesse's first experience with sand. He's never felt sand between his toes before :) At first, he wasn't sure what to think, and he kept trying to stand on our sheet that we spread out to put our towels on. Eventually he braved the sand and stepped out further and further. He also enjoyed splashing around in the lake. He would run and splash into the lake, turn around and run back towards the sand, and then run back and splash into the water again. He got a couple of mouthfuls of sand as he tried to eat some. We had a lot of fun that day, and later in the summer we went up and took my hubby along and cooked out. Love making memories with our baby boy!
