Life's a Beach

Katie and I head back to California tomorrow. We've had a great visit in Miami but Katie misses her daddy and we are excited to get back to Manus. (no, not kidding, I'm for real...) We will be spending the weekend in San Francisco, right off Fisherman's Wharf and if I ever remember to book the tickets, we'll do the tour of Alcatraz too.

My mom and I took Katie to Matheson Hammock yesterday. Considering she lived on Miami Beach for the first 11 months of her life, this wasn't her first trip to the beach, but in some ways it was. This was the first time she played in the sand, splashed in the water, peed in the ocean, chewed on some grit, or picked up dead crabs. So, by those standards, this was her unofficial first day at the beach. (if by beach I mean the tepid pee-pool of an atoll like Matheson, which I guess I do).

Sure we were the ONLY ones there because we chose the ugliest day to go,

But we've learned its best to just to follow Katie's lead.

She had a lot of fun and so did we.

Ummm seriously, could she look just a little bit more like you?? Gorgeous! We will be in Miami 11/5-11/12, sucks that we will miss you.

I know you were concerned about sand in the crotch. Let me know how that's working out for you. I think that we finally got Hanna clean after about a week!
