A Day at the Beach

Unlike her friend Z, E doesn't get a lot of beach days. In fact, I'm ashamed to admit that she hasn't stepped foot on a beach all summer. And it was only a few weeks ago that we discovered the sandbox in one of our neighbourhood parks. Once I explained to her that it's fun to have sand in your shoes, she was sold.

So when I started thinking about what to do on a rare holiday where J doesn't have to study, it didn't take long to decide that we would spend the last unofficial day of summer on the beach. And where do you go for a beach day when you live in Brooklyn? Why, Coney Island of course!

She had a blast. Well, except for the waves. Not a fan of the waves.

But the sand? She was digging the sand. (See what I did there?)

She could have dug to China.

Our little beach baby. We'll make sure to give her more opportunity to flaunt that beach body next year.


  1. Looks like she LOVES the beach!!! Next time you are in Canada, we'll have you over to the beach house :) Not in the middle of winter though... that might be a little chilly. Miss you guys... and Brooklyn! OXO

  2. forgot to mention... love Elle's little head poking out from the sand hole! perfect!
