Toddling

At the beach

The most fun part of the family vacation at my parents' camp this year: my grandniece! She's a year old now. We put our lawn chairs in a big circle to form a human playpen, and she'd walk around, a bit unsteady on the uneven ground, an endless source of entertainment. On the sunny days, she came with us to the beach. I don't think she spent even one minute sitting in the shade under the umbrella: she loved wandering along the water's edge and she kept moving, cheerfully getting up again every time she fell, smiling happily, no matter how wet or sandy she got.

A lesson many of us learn much later, falling down and getting up again and again.

She's a cutie.

Sometimes kids are way to adorable for words and only a photo will do. This is definitely one of those times!

Kids are so easily entertained..sometimes I wish I could recapture that childhood innocence about everything.

She is so adorable! And look at that red hair! I love watching little ones toddle around like that. Endlessly entertaining indeed. :-)

Love that determined stance. And the getting up again and again and again.

They are so funny to watch when beginning to walk. They care not how many times they fall down, in fact at times find it amusing themselves.
