Herman left for a week long business trip Saturday, so we celebrated Mother's day on Friday by heading to Santa Cruz (oddly enough, something we've never done together). It was so cold, but we had a great time doing all the normal boardwalk things (carousel, junk food, silly games) and playing in the water. Last time we went to the beach (Half Moon Bay), Emilia was too scared to get close to the water. But this time? Full on love fest. We're going to have to do this more.
