Beach Day!

Well hello! I guess I am blogging again. I took a break for the last 5 months since I had Olivia. I feel like I am supposed to do a catch up entry like I do in my journal every time I write, but I am not going to! It is so liberating to resist the temptation to write the tedious, obligatory catch up entry. By the time you are done summarizing the last 6 months in a couple pages, you no longer want to write what is going on right now!

So, I went out to Huntington Beach, California to visit my friend, Lacy. We had a really good time. It was Olivia's first plane ride. She did really good on the way over (it was only a 50 minute flight). On the way back, it was an evening flight and she was pretty tired out from all excitement of the last few days and so she was pretty cranky. I sat in the very back of the plane in the last row in the window seat so that if she did freak out, I would hopefully only annoy half of the plane. She screamed for a minute or so and then gave up and went to sleep.

Lacy's place is a beach house about 2 minutes from the ocean. Lacy and I took Olivia and Lacy's dog Foxy to the beach on Saturday. It was so fun! Olivia was only in the water for a minute or so because it was really cold and she can't support her own body weight. She can't stay sitting up very well yet either. That makes for a very short time in the water. The ocean action tired her out immediately and she took a nap on the blanket while Lacy and I hung out for a couple hours. It was a great weekend. The weather was amazing- mid 70's during the day and in the 60's at night. I love California weather. Thanks to Lacy for the fun!

She is so adorable. I am sad that I still have not seen her. We have to get together soon before time passes and she is five!!! How are you doing?

I love the close up of the one in the stroller with her smiling! That's my favorite. What a cutie!

I love the one with her pacifier and she looks all scrunched. That sounds so wicked fun! I also love Foxy in the bottom of the stroller.

She is so pretty! My favorite is the first one --- the one where she is just getting to know the sand. Beautiful.

You got so dang lucky on that plane flight. I'm jealous.

I totally respect you for declaring that you're not going to do a catch-up journal entry. It's so tempting to do those, but then it just gets exhausting and you stop writing all together. I admire you for resisting!!
