My Week as a Lifeguard

I finally got the chance to update my blog, I know that it has been over a month. Over our beach vacation Noah and I played in the water alot, he loves it but doesn't realize how deep or how fast the waves move. So I spent most of ny time with my back to the ocean or acting as a "wave break" to reduce the impact on my baby boy. He is fearless and plays hard, it was the best Lifeguard duty that I have ever done.
Trying to maintain an arms reach. I wish that I had a picture of him when he was getting tired. He would walk toward the beach exit waving to the ocean and saying "bye pool."
This picture reminds me of some lines from Peter Gabriel's song Father, Son.
Remember the breakwaters down by the waves,
I first found my courage knowing daddy could save,
I could hold back the tide
With my Dad by my side

Noah and I on the ferry, he loved watching the other boats passing by and the Sprite and M&M snack in the lounge area. I am looking forward to future trips with my little boy, I enjoy seeing him discover new things.
