Our day at the beach

Filed under: photos — by Lauren on September 30th, 2007 @ 5:36 pm

Yesterday our friends Lisa, Craig, and their daughter Alexis invited us to go with them on an impromptu outing to the beach.  It was such a beautiful day that we couldn’t say no.  We went to Pier Village in Long Branch, and it was Anya’s first time at the beach.  Well, technically she was at the beach when she was 3 months old when we went to Santa Monica on business with Lex, but we only walked across the street from the beach, not on it, and she was asleep the whole time, so it doesn’t really count.  Anya was absolutely captivated by the ocean yesterday.  She was pointing and exclaiming “Ooooh!” the whole time, and several times she signed and said “water.”  Anya was also a big fan of the seagulls and the other people there.  She liked squishing her toes into the sand, but didn’t particularly like when I cleaned her feet later.  Click on the picture to see more photos!
