We are enjoying some vacation here in Virginia Beach. Of course, he went to the beach last year, (twice actually!) but that was in his still mostly a blob stage. This year it is lots more fun. Judah LOVED playing with the sand. He also, of course, took a bite, just so he could compare it to the taste of regular garden dirt which he has sampled several times. Since he didn't cry but actually seemed to swallow, I'm thinking he prefers sand to garden dirt.
