We've been at the beach this week and it's been really nice. My in-laws got a place right on a canal... I love having water just steps from the back door. Lea's cousins, Kristin, Ross and Lilly, have been keeping her busy! They played on the beach, in the back yard, on the porch and the deck. We have walked the pier, gone crabbing and fishing. No fish (at least, fish big enough to keep) were caught... but we did get a few blue crabs. (actually, they were small enough that we should have thrown them back but the kids were SO excited about cooking & eating them, we just had to keep 'em!) The weather is perfect. It has been warm enough to play outside but cool enough to keep you out there.
We're coming back in August and I'm really looking forward to it. Kevin had to go home early this week for work, but he's promised to take the entire week off in August! We've missed him A LOT.
Lea is talking more and more these days. She likes to point things out and tell you what it is. If she doesn't know what it is, she waits for you to tell her... then she nods as if she's saying "Yup, that's right." Some new things she's saying now are Elmo, strawberry and ice cream.
