Well, it’s safe to say that my kids have two completely different personalities. When Augie was 2 and we brought him to Hilton Head, he jumped right on into the ocean and yelled out “this water tastes salty!”. Not Ari, she had a love hate relationship with the ocean all week until our last day when she decided to swim and enjoyed every second of it.
Since we got in to HHI later in the evening, there wasn’t much time for swimming, but Augie obviously enjoyed himself anyways – running and splashing in his clothes. The rest of us tried to console Ari and convince her the ocean is not as scary as it looks, but she wasn’t having any part of it.
