However, we tried the real beach the next afternoon and apparently all a baby needs to get over her fear of sand is a few toys and a bathing suit. She loved it. She was not so sure about the actual water however. She kept pointing at it, and liked to be held while one of us was standing in it, but didn't really want to get in herself. One day, she got distracted by some rocks and sat in it a little, but we mostly played in the sand.
We spent the evenings lounging in the yard. We found a supercute, tiny chair for Parker and she thought it was hilarious to sit with her Moms.
A week or so before vacation, Parker had started saying "whoa" when something interested her. I finally was able to catch that face on film...errrr....pixels?
The last couple of days were a little chilly, so we made a trip to visit the Grand Traverse lighthouse (I think that's what it was called.......) Anyway, here's Alicia and Parker by the Lake at the lighthouse.
