Today was a day of "firsts" for Magnus. We were able to come on a trip with Joe (I guess you could say we went to work with him for a few days!) to Wilmington, NC, and though the pictures pretty much tell the story, I'll fill in a few more details. Magnus' first trip to the beach pretty much just scared him to death. The roar of the waves, the water that chased us around and tried to eat our feet, and the sun-bathers. Yes, very scary indeed. So, we brought him back to the hotel room and introduced him to the pool instead. He thought that was pretty awful at first too, but there were some other little children there that made it look soooo fun that he started splashing around and soon was enjoying himself completely. This evening we chowed on some great food followed by a heavenly waffle cone, but the highlight of Magnus' day was *brace yourself* his trip to Wal-Mart. It was the first time he's been able to "run the aisles", and the toy section was especially enjoyed. I have to admit, it was a much nicer Wal-Mart than what Richmond could hope to offer, but still... I'll take the sun and sand any day!
