Sand Castles

Sunday we took the girls to Henley Beach. This was their first time going to one of my favorite spots! ( one of the perks for moving out here ) So it was nice and warm at home so we figured it would be just bearably to go to the beach, and we were right. It was very cold and windy, but Emmy loved playing in the sand and building sand castles with her dad. The sand on top wasn't wet enough to get us wet, but if you dug down a little bit it was damp enough to pack and hold shape. Dad would make them and she'd tear them down. Lilah didn't enjoy herself so much, but she was all bundled up and cocooned in the sling so she was just hibernating.

After that we went to a nice little park where Emmy got to swing high on the swings and run over a drawbridge and go down a big slide. I was watching from the car while I was feeding Lilah and I could see her do a big run across... sit her butt down on this HUGE tall slide and went down all by herself. She's such a little dare devil. Kim said that she gave him a nervous smile and then just went. So trusting!

Pete and REpeat haha She's definitely got her dad's eyes! And Emmy is just her dad all over!

Bad news is her Baby Dance class has been canceled for this term due to some health problems going on with the teacher's son. It was over before it began, but we'll sign up for next term. We'll go this week to Kinder Gym and see if that's something we want to sign up for. I'm sure it'll be a blast for her. From the pictures there's slides and a huge ball pit and places to jump and large play things. It was a huge hassle to take the stroller to baby dance since I had to go down a flight of stairs, but hopefully I'll be able to take one here for Lilah and it will work out great.
