Each morning before James' work we'd walk along this amazing path by the beach. Though it was really nice in the mornings, we would have preferred to sleep in past 6 am if Joshua would have let us!
Joshua's playpen fit perfectly in the corner of the hotel room. Lucky for us, besides the slightly too early 6 am start, he slept pretty good here. We just darkened the room and put a blanket over the edge of pen during sleep times.
Joshua got to sit on the beach and feel sand for the first time. Though he wasn't so sure about it at first, after a few minutes he began to really like to play with the sand, and amazingly didn't try to put it in his mouth.
He also got to take a look at the ocean for the first time.
And here's daddy and Joshua on the Santa Monica Pier.
It was a bit chilly camping at night in the canyon. Luckily I had recently bought Joshua this warm brown suit. He had about 3 layers on while sleeping at night and I was still so worried about him getting cold.
