Baby's First Beach Fire

It sounds way worse than it actually is. Maybe I should've titled it, "Baby's First Fire on the Beach." Eh - either way, it sounds like Emmett is committing arson.

Anyway, during an impromptu trip up to Maine last weekend (James was needed by his parents for some manual labor. I shopped.), we made an awesome little fire on the beach. James' parents actually live right on the coast of Freeport, Maine in Casco Bay. Here's a shot of the fantastic view from their backyard:

Just beyond the lawn in their backyard, there is a steep embankment that leads down to the beach, which is where we started the fire. Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure it was actually my first fire on a beach as well (please let me know if I'm wrong and I've actually had a beach fire with you before). Kind of cool to share a first with my own son.


Emmett was definitely mesmerized by the fire ...

Grandpa Mac and Gran Lucy bought Emmett his first life jacket, which makes James and I very excited for Em's first boat ride this summer :)
