Family Vacation

Baby And the Beach

Wake up late after sleeping ALL night, throw on a swimsuit, hit the beach, stay outside all day (or until hungry)…rinse and repeat – this is how you do vacation. Unless of course, you’re an 8 month old. Taking a baby to the beach is similar to being at home with a baby, just in a […]
