We started going to the Reservoir right before Robbie turned one. The first year, he crawled around and ate sand. He tried to walk in the water, taking his first stilted steps from me to Justin. Last year, he went into the water but only with one of us with him. He needed constant supervision. This year is, well, awesome.
Rob loves going to the “small” beach. He builds roads and sand castles. He goes swimming in the water. He still steps on other kids’ sand castles, which we’re working on. The other day, we took a picnic and stayed for the whole day. There is nothing like watching this kid play.
