Galveston Day 2- The Beach

Smiles are still on everyone’s faces, but one thing I’m learning is that having a sibling is so different from being the only focus in my parents eyes. There are some brothers here that are always trying to get under each other’s skin and they usually do. It’s funny to see how quickly they can push each other’s buttons. The little brother was convinced he got stung by a jelly fish, but turns out his big brother just scratched him with his toenail to scare him – it worked because little brother left the beach with his arm wrapped up.

Anyway, today was all about the beach – sandcastles, waves, boogie boards. The one thing I love to do is run into the waves and see if they can knock me down – the answer is yes, but I get right back up and ask for more. I think I did this for hours. Daddy and mommy kept saying how big I was getting and how much easier it was this year versus last year because they didn’t have to hold me up or jump with me above the waves since I know how to swim and knew to hold my breath this year if I went under – glad I could make your life easier, but just keep this moment in mind when you think I’m a handful – it’s a trade off.

I’ve gotten so big that this year I’m boogie boarding – nothing like water boarding so it’s all good. To me it was like Riding Giants – waves crashing in over me – feeling like I’m on the verge of going out of control, but riding high on the waves – I’m hooked. I think I’m going to be a beach bum/surfer when I get older – I haven’t broken that news to my folks yet, but they seem so happy that I’m doing it now so what’s the big difference, right?

After all that, it was time to chill by building some sand castles. That is really not my forte because we spend all that time making castles that seem to fall in no time – fall or I knock them down that is. whichever, it is relaxing to me – zen if you will.

So far, so great. Keep you posted.
