Beach Prep: Sun Protection

The next step in our beach prep training was acclimating Clara to sun protection.  She has never been a big fan of sunglasses, but we have been trying to warm her up to the idea.....

She will now wear them for approximately eight seconds.    And then, there's this:

 So, we thought perhaps we'd try a hat instead (this one just so happened to be another hand-me-down from mama's collection)....

She tolerates the hat a little better, but to be honest, I was getting an awful lot of this:

Dare I try to combine the two??

"AWWW, MOM!!!!" 

"Take them off!!!"

Clara, if you will wear both the glasses and the hat long enough for me to take a picture, you can go to the beach....


And done.

See you soon, Wrightsville.


  1. oh my GOOD GRACIOUS! she is SO cute and i am SO sad we have STILL not gotten these little miracles together! uugghhh! i could eat her with a spoon! that last picture HAS to be framed and hung somewhere in your sweet little house! :o)

  2. That last picture of Clara is adorable!!!! Have an incredible time at the beach.

  3. This little miracle is more and more fun. Precious photos! Love her lots...

  4. OOOOOOh, oooh, oooh, Miss Clara ....Sunglasses, sunbonnet and lace. The minute I saw your face, I knew that I loved you!!!!!!! Beach music, beach girl, beach weather ... can't you just hear the ocean's roar? Enjoy a perfect vacation with your perfect little girl!

  5. Don't you get it, Mom. I wanted lady bug glasses. These aren't IT for me. (care of Phyllis for Clara)

  6. Two words. Zinc Oxide.

    Sunglasses and hats work for adults, and photo ops. A strong sun block is worth its weight in gold, not to mention more effective than a hat and sunglasses combined.

    She is just too precious to risk even a tiny bit of sun exposure.

  7. So cute!!!! This made my day! :)

  8. She is growing up way too fast!!! I love looking at all the precious pictures and hope I can get my hands on her again soon!!!

  9. She's growing up so fast!! How cute is she in that dress, hat and shades!!
