Monday's Mommy Moment: Where the Boardwalk Ends...

8.30.2010

A few weeks ago, Daddy, Mommy, and Lil' Lewie enjoyed a "stay-cation."  Since we had to save up for The Two Lew Barbeque, our last vacation of the summer involved going to beaches and parks close to home.  At this particular beach in Milford, CT, there was a long boardwalk connecting the parking lot to the beach.  I didn't think much of it at the time, but Little Lewie thought the boardwalk was FABULOUS.  In fact, he spent much of the first hour walking back and forth on the boardwalk, showing no interest in the beach or the water at all. 


Of course, I followed him back and forth for the hour that he paced the boardwalk and said "hi" to all the passer-byes. I suppose it would have been easy to get frustrated since it was HOT that day, but instead, I took lots of pictures and marveled at his excitement.  Plus, he looked too darn cute in his swimsuit to ever get upset.  After walking the entire length of the boardwalk for the fourth time, we finally did make it to the beach and the cool, refreshing water.  It was well worth the wait...

  12. Won't publish a book this time! One of the things I love about the blogosphere is that you "meet" people from all over. I've never been to Connecticut, but now I'd love to learn more about your neck of the woods. It's nice to have "first hand" connections who know the area. glad Little Lewie enjoyed the boardwalk and the water.
