To all the military families who have lost friends & family members who fought for America- Thank you. Memorial Day is one of those holidays that always puts things in perspective. As long as there is freedom in America there will be people trying to destroy it- and if it wasn't for those brave ones life would be a lot different for us. Thinking about that makes simple days like the one we had today so much more special.
We woke up early and I made Daniel some biscuits and egg. Eva sat in her high chair while I cooked.
We were lazy for a bit before deciding to head off to the base to surf. When we got there the surf looked pretty good but it was insanely windy. We had to sit high in the dunes where there is some protection from blowing sand but it was pretty nice up there. I've really wanted to take Eva into the ocean (besides just her feet) for the first time but whenever we go it's always too cold or windy or something. (Yes, it gets pretty cold in Hawaii. If we were back in Texas she'd definitely be in the water by now. It's way warmer this time of year.) Oh well, maybe next weekend.
Daniel surfed first but when he came in to switch off with me we decided just to go. It was really windy and choppy and I'm so sore from this week's workouts and I decided to pass.
When we got back home we gave Eva a bath. She loved it so much and made the saddest little pouty face when I took her out. I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time when I saw it. It was just too adorable but it was definitely not one of those fake whines. She was genuinely sad. After that we gave her some tummy time. She got so frustrated for a while and then eventually gave up and drifted to sleep.
Eva may hate tummy time, but she loves when we hold her to where she can "stand up." Sometimes she whines to be in that position. So today we went to Target and bought her a "Johnny Jumper." Both Daniel and I had one when we were babies (according to our mothers) so we thought it'd be neat if she had one too.
Daniel left for Jiu-Jitsu a little while ago and now baby E and I are just chillin. It's tough being away from our family back home on days like this- when they're all together and barbequing and beachin it, but we still managed to have a great day.
