SC visit 2 - first time in the lake

There is a paved trail that surrounds part of the lake near my grandparents' house. Along the trail is a small beach where my brother and I used to swim when we'd visit them during the summers. Even though it was still sprinkling, I thought Wesley would enjoy wading in the water. It turned into a little more than wading, but was still a lot of fun.

Headed down the path to the beach.

Taking off our shoes before walking on the sand.

Wesley has been to the New Jersey shore once and thought the sand felt really weird on his feet. Evidently, he still felt that way and didn't want to put his feet down at first.

Used to the sand.

Testing out the water. We took Wesley swimming in the pool most of the summer, so he's used to water. But, other than the NJ shore, he's never been to a beach. And, the waves were really rough when we were at the shore, so he didn't want to go near the water then. This is his first real walk along a beach.

Getting the feel for the water and sand between his toes.

Starting to plod along.

Oh! This IS fun!

Pointing out Grandpa watching on the side.

Back to the water for some more fun.

Wesley discovered that wet sand is super fun to throw into the air (and consequently, his hair)

Getting ready to toss another handful.

He also loved running down the small slope in the beach, ending with me waiting for him in the water.

Before we left, I stripped off his shirt, turned him over, and dunked him (just the top of his head) to get most of the sand off his head. He thought it was hilarious.

Drying off.
