Last weekend, we took the little girl for a hike in the Marin Headlands. It was a beautiful, clear day but a little windy since a storm was going to come in that night. When blocked by the hills, Emma enjoyed being outdoors for a walk a little different than our usual one through Golden Gate Park, but once that wind hit her face she was not happy. So, unfortunately, she did not get to enjoy her first time at the beach.
To make up for this, I bought her a couple books in the Visitor Center. She quite liked them, I think. She tried to put them in her mouth. Mommy didn't let her, though. :)
