At the beach


Few weeks back, we brought Xi En to the beach to experience the sun, sea and sand. I had this fun picture in my mind – he will be chasing the waves and making sand castles. Errmm… but that is quite far from the truth! Xi En was actually quite scared of the waves and needed some coaxing to put his feet onto the sand/sea water. And he didn’t like the sand either!


Photos below to tell the story:



His breakfast: First foray into the “sinful” fast food – Macdonald’s!

  Playing with his food seemed more fun than eating them.

 Beautiful weather. But Xi En was very wary of the oncoming waves and the feel of sand around his toes. Ah ma tried edging him forward to the waves.

 Let’s try making some sandcastles instead. Yet to buy any proper beach tools – so Ah ma brought along some disposables. 😛

Not too keen to play with the sand either … with the waves too near for comfort! haaa….

 In less than 20 mins, we ended the sun, sea, sand expedition when Xi En started attempting to taste the sand on his hands!

Till Xi En grows older, we will try the sun, sea, sand again! 🙂
