I haven't been to the beach since I was 17, the summer before I started my senior year of high school. Needless to say, it's been a while. Walking the boardwalk and driving around Seaview brought back so many memories.
It was also Calvin's first trip to a beach! He was enamored with the waves, but a little unsure of the sand. If it were warmer I would have let him sit in the sand and explore it a little more. Alas, it was a typical Washington beach day, overcast, breezy and a little chilly. My grandpa described it as "soupy," probably the best, and most accurate, description ever for the weather.
He's just so dreamy
Rolling around on the very uncomfortable hotel bunk bed.
Not quite sure about the sand, cousin Austin was excited to bury his feet in it
Part of the crew
Snoozin' through the funeral
He LOVES sitting in the front seat! He likes to take after Grandma, driving with one hand, reaching for the Dr. Pepper with the other.
I truly loved my Uncle Warren and it was so great to have the opportunity to travel home to remember him, and it was also wonderful to see not just my mom and sisters, but a tone of my extended family.
Rest in peace, Uncle Warren. I'll think of you whenever I see the beach.
