PSF - The Powell Beach Experience - Charlie's Version

These series of pictures were taken pretty much the exact moment Charlie touched the sand.

Hmmmm, this looks tasty.

A little crunchy but so far so good.
What the heck is this stuff??
Maybe this bite will be better.
And pretty much any time Charlie was on the sand, he was eating it.

Except in this picture.
He took a bite right after I snapped it.

And if we tried to keep him from touching sand, this was his reaction.
Pleasant, no?

So, he ended up being held most of the time.

Charlie's verdict; The beach? Pretty tasty!

Having never --to my knowledge--eaten sand, I will have to defer to his conclusions.

I'd guess from the nude shot that he brought home some sand, concealed in other areas too!

what is it with kids and sand!!! what a cutie!

Jen said...

I just read all of your beach post. They were really cool. A family that loves and eats the beach. Awesome.

Bren said...

There must be something about the look and texture that makes it immediately go in the mouth! He seems to have had a great time though! As for the naked pic? Yeah - would hate to clean after that! He got a tushy exfoliation!

heidi said...

Ha! How DARE you try and keep him from eating the sand!!

He's so cute.

Pam Emmons said...

Why the heck do kids eat sand? All of mine did, and cleaning their little bums was awful!

Robyn said...

Thanks for the smiles. It is amazing what they will put in their mouths.

Lauren said...

Ha ha! I love the naked picture! EJ was a sand eater too!

Kelli said...

He is so cute...even if he ate sand the whole time he was at the beach! I'm sure Eli will be doing the same thing...since he already cleans ever speck of dirt off the floors at home he will probably be in heaven at the beach! The naked picture is SUPER cute!!

I love the all natural shot!

kaye said...

haven't you heard--all you need to grow is dirt, water and sunshine! great story. Here’s my photo story happy Friday!

Tina said...

My youngest did the same thing his first trip to the beach. I can't imagine that it tastes good (and that gritty feeling in your mouth? Yuck!) but he seemed to enjoy it!

Great pictures and posts about your trip. I so want to go to the beach now!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Love the nude shot!

What is it with the eating of the sand?

Izzy never did...but we didn't go to the beach until she was old enough to know better.

I love the nude shot too! And the big smile too!
I think I like Charlie's version the best......Too cute.......
Make sure you stop over.....something awaits!

Awwwww, a little extra grit in his diet, huh? I don't think sand counts as fiber though, huh?

Oh well! Darling photos. We were at the coast having our own adventures last weekend. We didn't eat the sand, but we did get STUCK in it! =0)

Thanks for visiting me!!!

Have a great weekend. =0)

That naked shot is just precious!!!!

Honey Mommy said...

My one year old is constantly trying to eat sand from our sandbox! It must be tasty or something, but I sure don't want to try it!

Ryanne said...

I don't know when that stage ends...My three and a half year old still eats dirt and sand whenever he thinks I am not looking! Those are adorable pictures by the way!

I love that you did a perspective on your trip from all three kiddos. Brilliant!
