We absolutely love the summer. We’re beach people and enjoy surfing – even our little guy. It’s fun to watch my older boys take off on their own with their boogie board, while my 9 month old watches on the beach. When I was a first-time mom, I’d never let my infant son get sandy or play with kelp. But after three kids, I think getting sandy, dirty, and playing with plants is the perfect way to spend an afternoon.
