The rest of the day was awesome. We met up with Lauren and her kids at the beach. You know cause January is the new July and it was at least 75 out. There was a huge swell so there were surfers on and off the beach all day. Totally felt like a summer day. I took Olive down to the water for a little while to put our feet in but I'm learning that just means Olive is going to go swimming and I'm going to end up wet as well. First off just because the weather is warm does not mean the water it. It was freezing to the point that it hurt when you stood in it long enough. I could hardly take it but Olive was ready to take a swim to Catalina. She screamed at me when I didn't let her run towards the wave and did not want to be picked up like when she was a baby. She was beyond excited when a wave knocked her footing and she fell on her butt. This summer is going to be hysterical trying to stop her from going in the water. At least it will be much warmer. We played on the beach for a few hours, chased the kids around, chatted, and snacked till it was nap time for the kiddos and we headed home. I hope there are more beach days in the near future cause it was so much fun! I am totally exhausted from the salty air. Isn't is weird how it does that?? I mean my day wasn't exactly stressful or exhausting by any means but the beach sure makes you feel tired.

|2012 is all about visualizing what you want or printing it out and playing make believe.|
|No snack is safe from Olive.|
|Early morning walk.|
|She won't smile when I ask her but she will make a "silly face."|
|And this is what our afternoon looked like. It's not all sunshine and oceans......|
