A day at the beach (or at 30 minutes)

Recently on a beautiful Friday afternoon we all snuck out of the house a bit early and went to the beach complete with buckets and shovels, cameras and dogs in tow. Li Li wasn’t too sure about the water which was a little chilly but she liked playing in the sand with her shovel. A good time was had by all especially the dogs who relished the opportunity to frolic in the salt water.

One of the reasons we brought the camera (like I need a reason to bring a camera) was because we recently realized we have almost no pictures of Li Li with me except from our time in China. This realization came recenty because this summer when Catherine went on her annual sailing trip she printed out a picture of her with Li Li and pasted it on the wall next to the changing table so Li Li could see it. Two months later it’s still there and Li Li likes to touch it, especially in the morning. Since I’m gone during the week so much, I thought maybe we could post one of me and Li Li together as well. But we really couldn’t find one, so we decided to take one.

I think it came out fairly decent since I’m usually the one behind the camera. Li Li is as cute as ever.

Me and Li Li

The other picture I’ll post is a picture of Li Li with our next door neighbor Margaret. Margaret’s husband Peter has a lush and productive raspberry patch from which Li Li must consume a half-pint of rasberries every day. Peter picks them for her and Li Li smiles and smiles as she gobbles them down at light speed. Margaret is a big fan of Li Li and greatly enjoys her Li Li time especially when Li Li is in happy mood.

Well that’s enough for now. My flight will be boarding soon after another 3 hour weather delay. We’ll keep trying to post some of our recent pictures. -t
