sixth of the sixth...

psychmamma tagged me for another play along here...
the rules are to choose the sixth photo from your sixth album and post it with a brief description and/or the story behind it.
me, being the rule-follower that i am...followed the directions to a t. so here it is.



just after belly turned 1. sometime in june of 2005, i believe. we went for a trip to visit friends that were living in california at that time. we flew into san francisco airport and were planning to drive down to monterey bay for a few days before heading back north.
at the airport, we rented our red minivan. (i don't know why that sticks out in my memory.) and we decided to begin our drive south, figuring that we would stop on the way. our girly had other plans. belly was getting completely restless. hating her car seat. hating the fact that she was still cooped up. she needed to move.
we saw a sign indicating that we were nearing a beach area. (i have tried really hard and searched for the name...but cannot figure it out. i'll update if i can find it. sar-bear?) we decided to stop and let her run around and play in the sand.
this was a picture of the first time that her foot touched sand.
it was the warm, comfortable sand. not the hot sand that burns the bottom of your feet. it was a quiet day on the beach. not too many people, a huge flock of sea birds...and the quiet rolling of the waves. belly loved to toddle out towards the water and then attempt to run toddle quickly back as the waves moved in. it was one of my fondest memories of our trip.
edited to add! oh yeah...
i'm supposed to tag 6 people for this one!
here goes...(play along...this meme was a lot of fun! revisiting old memories...) check back and let me know if you participated...

I love it! I love baby and toddler feet!! They're kissably cute. Except maybe not with sand on them.

What wonderful memories to. I like this meme because it's like pulling out old photo albums and reminiscing, ooooh-ing and aaaaah-ing. Fun.

Hello Jen, fellow cora-mommy! I think it is interesting that you found me, and that I checked your blog today, because Monterey Bay is my favorite place in CA (besides my parents' house)!

Nice to meet you out here in the blogosphere!

I *love* this picture!! There is just something about toes and sand. When we were at the beach this summer I had to take a picture of my own toes in the sand. You know. So I could be in one of the pictures :-)
