Beach Vacation Day 5
Pop and Lola rented a beach chair and umbrella for the week.
The weather was beautiful this morning and Reed needed his "sungwasses."
Aunt Ava watched Uncle Brookie in the water.
I'm not sure, but I would imagine that Lola is trying to cater to one of Reed's MANY requests!
Have we mentioned that Reed loves the beach?
Can you tell who gets all of the attention when we are at the beach?
Uncle Brookie helped Reed "catch water."
Reed put the contents of his net in the "big ole" hole.
Reed caught water all by himself.
"Hey Reed, where is your foot?"
"I want to catch fish."
Today there were schools of fish swimming all around us and jumping out of the water. It was pretty neat.
Reed snuck away from the paparazzi.
Aunt Ava was sad because I wasn't in the picture. Actually, I was trying to figure out the timer on our camera.
From our balcony.
Don't squint, Uncle Brookie!
Aunt Ava wants to be on America's Next Top Model.
Last picture before Aunt Ava and Uncle Brookie headed back to the 'Sip.
Love you Ava.
The building where our condo is.
"I not seepy."
Reed has a favorite animal. It started a couple of months ago when Enna took him to the museum and he saw "Opopuses." Well, there is a souvenir shop here called "The Purple Octopus" and Reed says, "Purple Opopus" nearly 3000 times a day.
We finally took Reed to actually get close to the opopus today.
He loved it!
We bought him a purple opopus t-shirt and a plastic purple opopus.
When we were leaving, he said, "I see purple opopus amara (tomorrow)."
Oh the joys of toddlerhood.
Reed went inside the purple opopus and immediately went to this statue and began shouting loudly, "Dat Mama! Dat Mama!" It was pretty funny. He was very impressed by her belly button.
While Reed and I napped, a storm started brewing. Pop went to rescue our stuff.
It was a pretty fierce storm.
Reed slept with his new purple opopus.
We went crab hunting again tonight. Reed was very impressed. Again.
We made an impromptu stop at the pool.
Reed demonstrated his kicking ability.
