Here's what our past week looked like:
» I finally wiped the dust off my DSLR and took it out for a day.
» We explored a beach in our own backyard. It even has a great toddler playground.
» And, seriously, look at this cove! You have to climb down the rocks, but it's totally worth it, especially if you wear sensible footwear unlike me (ahem, Havaianas).
» This place is perfect for tidepools, too. I can't wait to go back and explore them more during low tide.
» As soon as our toes hit the sand, the clouds parted and the sun fried us. By us I mean me. H and Alexa did a better job with sunscreen.
» We played Frisbee.
» Thai tea shaved ice with strawberries and bananas.
» She curled up and watched "Pin-cess Pea" (of Super Why fame) on the Kindle.
» On Father's Day our gift to Daddy was peace and quiet. We met up with Sara and went to the mall, where Alexa spied the fountains. Five minutes later, she was drenched.
» First time riding the horsies at the supermarket. The first two times around, she had a huge grin on her face. Then, utter disappointment set in. Hey, kid, I warned you it wasn't a real horsie.
» Pizza, beer and lots of laughs with a bonne amie. This pizza was pretty freaking fantastic, if you ever find yourself in Long Beach.
» Self-portrait by a 2-year-old.
» PARKED on the Harbor Freeway.
» If I never see this puzzle again it will be too soon. Ah, how she loves it, though.
» Minion over Los Angeles.
