One thing we did on vacation was go to the ocean in Whiterock. My cousin Booked us a hotel for my belated birthday present. We had so much fun and the kids experienced some firsts,like turning over rocks to look for crabs.
Matteo had alot of fun after he got over his fear. But he sure ended up with a nasty rash between his legs from the sand! He walked a little funny for a couple days but I am sure he would say it was worth it!
