This is my 10 year old son Dalton. This picture was taken at Clearwater Beach Florida. It was his first time to see the ocean. He wanted his mother and I to bury him in the sand after he had collected a bucket of small sea shells.

James (14 months old) had his first experience tip-toeing into the ocean on the 4th of July at Westport, WA. He'd only just learned to walk in the weeks prior and I was surprised when he immediately decided that sand and water felt good on his feet.

During our youngest son's first trip to the Pacific Ocean, dad thought it would be cute to bury the little guy up to his belly button. All was fun until I brought out the camera while he was trying to figure out how to dig himself out with a stick.
