With no cars on Fire Island to hop from place to place, we did a whole lot of walking. The first day we were there, we actually set out over the wood-plank-paved inland paths with our trusty Maclaren, only to run into patches of deep sand that made navigating with a stroller impossible. After that, we decided to adventure exclusively with the aid of our Mei Tai and woven wraps -- and we had so much fun while getting so much further! J got tons of exercise running along the beach for hours, but whenever he got tuckered out Taro or I would take turns wearing him. It was such a sweet treat and a blast from the past to wear our gangly three-year-old every day. W, of course, is still used to this mode of transportation ;)
Here are some of my favorite photos from our week of babywearing on the beach:
In these photos we are wearing our kids in a Babyhawk Mei Tai
and a Didymos woven wrap.
