Jada's legendary love of water took a temporary hit earlier this week, when she was unsuspectingly hit by a hard wave and startled to tears. For a few days, she was actually afraid of the water - she stayed far from the shore, resisted invitations to get closer, and even cringed at pictures of the ocean on TV. No matter; plenty of other beach to-do's for her to furrow her brow with, like flying kites with Granddad or making seaweed soup.
Aaron was a lot less excited about the beach. The brightness had him squinting and whimpering, and our attempt to quickly tip his feet in the oncoming waves was met with quite a howl. Oh well, wait til next year.
