Rich's co-worker just took an extended vacation to the beach. They took their 9 month old daughter with them. She apparently loved the sand and the surf and had an absolute blast.
This instilled jealousy in Rich. He had mentioned possibly getting a hotel room down there at some point, but that just isn't feasible with the pet situation that we have.
So today Rich announced that he has off three days next week and that we should take a day trip down to the beach on Thursday. Sounds good to me. However, I'm now trying to figure out the logistics of having a 20 mo old kid who barely eats and spends her whole day drinking milk along. I have sort of figured out the milk thing; we could simply either pack a few bottles into a cooler, or we could pack a half gallon into a cooler and take one baby bottle with us. That might be doable. The lunch situation, however, is confusing to me.
She really only eats nuggets, and she only eats in her high chair. If you try to feed her elsewhere she simply throws food on the ground and ignores it. I had thought of packing a few of her nuggets. I guess I could microwave them first and then pack them in a baggie in the cooler. If we go to lunch somewhere I could put her in the restaurant high chair and then give her the nuggets. This just might work.
