And I don't know about you but I, for one, have always found that both kids and the beach are the perfect antidote for soothing the soul.
So we went about finding ourselves some kids . . .
We threw in some friends, a couple of coolers . . .
. . . and we had ourselves a lovely, comforting, soul-soothing day.
It was Jelly Roll's first beach outing and he loved it. Loved it. He gurgled and kicked and flailed about all day, happy as a little jellyroll could be. (Pay no attention to that furrowed brow; that's his ever-present look of concentration.)
The kids had a blast too. Uncle Bill took them on the rocks, to the waterpark, and on the waterslide.
. . . honestly, I don't know how we're expected to cope without them.
Those wobbly days are long gone for both these two, though. They are the opposite of Wobble Boy and Wobble Girl now. Now they're Stiff As A Board Boy and Stiff As A Board Girl. Just as it should be.
And Jelly Roll? Oh, he just carried on his horizontal dancing.
