Taking a 22 month old to the beach by yourself is no small feat.


-Diaper Bag


-Daddy Chair, Baby Chair

-Sand Toys

-Clothes Bag

-Lunch, Snacks, Bottle, Water, etc.


I am about 6’4”, bearded and fat.  No one expects me to be lugging a baby around let alone doing something challenging with said baby, but hey, he likes it and I marginally enjoy it myself.  People just look at us and laugh right in my face.  It’s okay, I’m used to it.  It also helps that I tend never to look anybody in the eye.  The first time I did it, it took me two trips to the car and back.  At the end of packing up, 4 separate groups of beachgoers applauded.  How about helping if you’re watching that long?  I wouldn’t have accepted help anyway in earnest, just not in my personality.
