California - 6 Santa Monica

Mommy went off to work again, so we hit the beach! 

We didn't make it to Disneyland this trip because Davin was too small, but we did get to see Mickey and Minnie. 

The pier had lots of great rides without all the lines and the ticket price!  I rode a train with a clown or was it a hobo?

And the carousel!  I didn't like the horses going up and down but did like riding in the princess sleigh.  Davin took his first carousel ride with us.  

But Davin's favorite part was the beach.  He had his first sand experience a couple of days ago at the park.  He ate the sand then and didn't like it (maybe the first thing he put in his mouth that he didn't like to eat...) so he just played in the sand at the beach.  

He wasn't shy about going to explore.  There were a few other older babies, but Davin was better at crawling and playing.

And we had a picnic.  I love picnics!  

After the picnic, grandma and I made a sand castle and splashed in the water... but it was COLD!

Overall, a great day at the beach!  I can't wait to go back.  Too bad Mommy missed it all.

Beaches are great!!! But, you are correct, the water is cold. So, you and Davin just continue to do all the things that you enjoy on the sand...

Sorry we didn't get pictures at the touch tanks at your "Mom's" aquarium. Grandpa & I were busy holding you up so you could reach in to those sea stars, sea cucumbers, and mollusks.

We hope you come back again when ALL the days are in the 70's, not just the last one.
