If Everybody Had an Ocean

We're lucky enough to have a beach just a few blocks away.  Today Uliana and I wandered down there expecting just to throw some rocks before heading home for lunch.  But the tide was just heading out, making the sand wet and squishy.

Uliana is a two year old.  She is full of feelings and lunges towards her whims at full speed without thinking. And I couldn't help but feel a bit jealous as I watched her dive into the soggy sand.  My cellphone doesn't do it justice, but here are a few pictures of a sand bath that one can only indulge in when one is two.  (One also insists on wearing the fancy frou-frou dress every time it re-appears in our drawer.)

Our trips to the beach have resumed their more typical pattern, with Nikolai excavating canals, and Uliana being the only one brave enough to swim.
But there is another side of being two... for example sometimes you just "Don't Want Nikolai To Be Here!"  And though you may imagine that he was pestering her somehow... that was sadly not the case... he was simply sitting quietly at the dining room table working on a puzzle.
In addition to beaches, we also went to visit the chickens Wray Creek Farm (we get a weekly food box from them).

And Nikolai won 4th place in his age category at the Inner Harbour Grand Prix (he's on the red bike... in 2nd place on that first lap).  He is already asking for drop bars on his next bike...
