My new approach seems to be, if I buy enough stuff for warmer weather, it will warm up. So far, I've purchased a rain suit and a water table for E. But then R bought some mittens, so maybe that will set us back a week.
Thankfully, we did have some respite from the winter. We spent time in San Diego and Palm Springs. Here are some of my favourite pictures from the trip.
Walking down Pacific Beach:
E watching the ducks in Seaport Village. Throwing sand on the beach -- she would pick up a handful and yell "more!"
Tall ship and kiss statue
USS Midway -- we did a tour
Sunset at Pacific Beach
San Diego zoo (had to go back now that E is old enough to notice the animals)
Drawing at the New Children's Museum
Feeding the giraffes at The Living Desert
Butterfly area in the Living Desert (only saw this butterfly)
A palm tree oasis at the start of Murray Canyon
Sitting on a motorcycle at the Palm Springs Children's Museum. Tree climbing at a nearby park in Palm Springs.
