This afternoon we went down to the beach behind the house for a bit. Raul has only been to the beach once before, and just for a couple minutes. He liked it, and even smashed sand castles, threw shells, and scooted around! At one point he saw a dog down the beach and tried to scoot to it. He scooted fairly far down the beach and only looked back a few times to check on us. He was rewarded in the end and got to pet the dog! He really likes hanging out in the kayak below the house, too. My dad drew trucks and cars on his sandy bandages, and Raul was happy while he was doing it, but then tried to wipe them off. Later he was looking for them though when I put on his pajama pants, and rolled his pants up to see them.
