"I've got crabs" probably isn't the best pick up line for a fella to use but it worked well for Gage down at the beach. He got a lot of attention from these ladies here (who had been "sampling the sauce" all day if you know what I mean, haha) Gage went over to show them all his crabs he and Brook had caught and they all laughed and talked at once not realizing he couldn't hear at all. Daddy came to the rescue though since he was standing nearby and told them he couldn't hear as they were asking many questions that went unanswered.
They had a ball with those little crab nets and Gage had fun pushing his trucks around in the wet sand too.
I drove one car (I have to drive due to car sickness!!) and my parents drove the other. The kids swapped up, one riding w/them and one w/me. My kids talked back and forth to each other via walkie talkie the whole trip....and understood what was being said. I've already posted about those a few weeks ago, it amazes me that they can hear THAT well!!
