It was a bit cool, so we stayed bundled up. But it was just so great to see the sun!! This was the first time Elsie was really walking around outside, with all of the uneven ground! We went to the park several times. In addition to the standard swing, Elsie is now big enough to climb around on the playground equipment. She was also very excited to learn that you're allowed to touch plants and trees when they are OUTSIDE. (Elsie knows not to touch our one house plant.)
We went out to the beach a few times. Elsie was not a big fan of the sand. She liked the water, but as soon as it rushed out, she began to cry because the sand got soft and she started to sink in (or because the water was really cold?). If she got sand on her finger, Elsie would hold it out for one of us to clean off. We also had fun swimming in the heated pool a couple times.
