July 25 – Ground / Throwback Thursday

Hello and Happy Thursday!  Today is my father-in-law’s birthday!  Happy Birthday to him.  We’ll have cake with him and are taking him out for dinner tonight.  Should be a day of fun!

Ian at beachToday’s Photo-A-Day Challenge is Ground and it’s Throwback Thursday.  So, I decided to go with an old picture of Ian at the beach.

This is at a beach in Fort Pierce, Florida.  There are shells all over the sand, which I love!  I walked a few miles on this beach collecting shells. Now I have a vase full of them.

In this picture, Ian was about 2 years old.  He still had his pacifier in his mouth.  At that time of his life, it was hard to find him without it.

I love the look on his face in this picture.  He is so happy and full of adventure.  See his dimple?  He has them on both cheeks. He loved being barefoot that day so he could enjoy the sand.  He was fascinated with the texture.  This was a day that he ran around and had a ball.

He has grown quite a bit since then and no longer has the paci, but he still loves the beach!!!  Just like his mommy.

This sand is very different from my favorite Mission Beach, CA.  I love that each beach has its own uniqueness.  Special times have been had at both of these beaches!!

Hope you have a great Thursday!  I wonder what adventures today will hold?  I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to find out!
