Winston was watching Sponge Bob Squarepants on Saturday morning when he came and asked me if we could go to the ocean and play at the beach. I tried to explain to him that we live too far away and it's too cold but he kept at it, insisting we go - he has a hard time taking no for an answer.
In one of my more brilliant moments, I said, "why don't we pretend to go to the beach?" and told him he to put on his swim suit while I spread out our towels on the living room floor - I mean our beach. ;) Winston thought it was a great idea and off he went to get his suit.
First we played in the waves.
Winston did some cliff jumping into the ocean (our ottoman made a great cliff for him to jump from) and then we lay on our towels to dry off in the sun. Ahhh!
And finally found a treasure trove of seashells. All in all, we had a great time at the beach. I wonder where we'll go next weekend. Maybe the North Pole to visit the polar bears. (I sure love his imagination!)
