We knew that with Charlie being so new, we couldn't do anything too big for Memorial Day weekend. I was worried about him crying at a hotel, and wasn't really eager to pack for something like that anyway. We decided Sunday morning to drive to the Delaware shore. We left the house by 9am, which is good for us, and headed out. The traffic was great because everyone was already where they were traveling to for the weekend! Normally the 3 hour drive can turn into something much longer because of all the cars. We made it to Bethany by 12:30, and shopped, got caramel corn, and some lunch. We headed north after that to one of the State Parks and got down to business. William was a little hesitant to go in the water at first, but once he got in, it was hard to get him back out! He loved it. The highlight for him was when I found a dead horseshoe crab. He talked about it all the way home! He also found a very cool sand Mermaid sculpture someone had made. He helped finish decorating it. Though the weather was in the 90's the beach was very windy and kinda cool. I didn't take this into account, so poor Charlie got kinda chilly, but thankfully I had blankets in the car. William would stay in the water until he was frosty and then come wrap up and play in the sand again to warm up. We left as the sun was going down, stopped and got fish and chips for dinner, with some great ice cream for dessert. It was a very fun day, and it was totally worth the drive.
