Visiting Half Moon Bay

Today was another beautiful day so we decided to head to the beach. It was overcast and cool on the coast but we still had a nice time. We went out to eat but had to wait 45 minutes for our meals due to the fact that a 50-passenger tour bus had pulled in and all those meals had to be made/served. Russell had eaten his meal, watched the fish in the fish tank, and gone for a walk in the restaurant before we had eaten. Oh well. McDonald's does well for a reason!

After lunch, we played on the beach and although the water was cold, Russell liked to stand near the shore's edge. Dan kept a close eye on him and he is a great dad to our son!

On Thursday night, we hosted care group and we had strawberry shortcake for dessert. It didn't take Russell long to notice his Mom licking the beaters and he wanted to try as well!

Morning, Afternoon, and Evening

Well, as you can tell from the pictures, Russell loves toothpaste- and toothbrushes. He races into our ensuite bathroom in the morning to grab our toothbrushes and then reaches for the Colgate. He tries to 'put' toothpaste on the brush but thankfully, he can't open the cap yet. At bedtime, we sit him up on the sink and put a little paste on his brush and we brush with another toothbrush. He'd eat the Colgate if he could!
