beach baby

The day after a holiday weekend is always a little sad for me. We had such a wonderful time as a family in Sea Girt, New Jersey! It was Knox’s first trip to the beach and he did so good. We set up a beach mat under an umbrella with some toys and he played and watched all the people + he was mesmerized with the ocean.

If you live in the city and are ever looking for a nice beach that is a quick car ride away, I highly recommend driving (about 1.5 hours) to Sea Girt. The beaches are clean and family friendly and The Parker House is a great spot for lunch or dinner. The seafood by the pound served outside is my favorite option, but dining at the restaurant is great, as well (and easier with a baby). (It does turn into a hot spot in the evening so go early if you are looking for a family friendly scene.)

How cute are these baby Crocs?! There are so many adorable options for little boys (and girls too!) that I had to get the ones that are still too big for Knox for some of our friends! (boat shoes // clogs // flip-flops)

^^^Knox’s favorite game is peek-a-boo. It never gets old. ^^^


I found this patriotic ball when picking up a few things at Old Navy, and I knew it would be a hit at the beach!
