My favorite time of year is summer. Playing in the water with my girls and exploring the ocean beaches is always a summer treat. Growing up in Montana, I didn’t get to visit the ocean often which meant seeing a starfish attached to a pier was something I had to wait 30 years for. My girls are growing up with an ocean just a few hours away and the Puget Sound even closer. Whether you are miles away or just across the street, “Down in the Deep Blue Sea” is a great way to introduce the cast members of the ocean to your little explorer.
