Found out tonight how much my son loves the ocean and it got me thinking about our future adventures.  I can't think of a greater endeavor than fatherhood and as proud as I am now..... there's so much to look forward to.  So the journey begins, first fishing rod, first cast, first fish and a path we can walk together learning about the water, the ocean and life's unexpected blessings,  the way we did tonight.

Nice picture and thought.  Enjoy, mine will be a junior in college this fall.  Goes quickly, but is so fun.

It goes way too quickly.  Just spend good time with him.  It's the best thing you can do.

Thanks for sharing that great photo.

It reminds me of the first time I took my oldest son to the ocean.

It was Nauset Beach and he was about 18 months old.

He got very excited to see the water and immediately ran to the edge where an incoming wave took his feet out from under him before he got knee deep.

The  quickly receding water started to pull him in a bit deeper but I was within lunging distance and  scooped him up quickly.
Both he and my wife were wide eyed and we all learned to respect the water a little more that day.

As others have said, the time when they are small is so precious and it does go by too quickly.

Enjoy it while you can and cherish the memories.
