The Babies Hit the Beach with Yiayia

I've just returned from a short trip to Constantinople, and I have a bit of a backlog of photos and posts to make here. Look for (hopefully) more frequent posts over the next few days.

First, here are some photos from our trip to Nea Kallikrateia beach in Halkidiki last Friday. It was the babies' second time swimming at the beach, and they seemed to enjoy it even more this time, as you can see from the photo above of Paul swimming with his yiayia. Paul especially enjoyed it and it seemed like he was trying to swim.

Here's Phoebe splashing her way into the water, as Benjamin crawls along the shoreline playing in the wet sand in the background.

Here's Phoebe crawling over to her yiayia.

Benjamin was the most taken with the sand, and he spent most of the time digging a big hole in the wet sand and then sitting in it. Here he's relaxing with his yiayia.

There was a nice little restaurant right next to the spot we were swimming, so it was easy to walk over and get something to eat. We ordered some fresh, fried kalimari and I had the idea to cut off the little legs and see if the babies wanted to chew on them. To our surprise, they really seemed to like them. Here's Paul chewing on his fried squid leg. They're real Greek babies now!

Here was the scene at the table. At bottom, you can see Paul walking around with the squid leg hanging out of his mouth. In the background, you can see the beach where we were swimming.
