Beach Babes / by jennica hookstra

The weather in Vancouver is usually pretty hit or miss...

We go from having incredible summer weather, to grey, cold, miserable showers.  Because of this, I try to spend as much time outside as possible.  

We have lucked out with some pretty hot and sunny weather this past week.  Which means you can usually find me at the beach as soon as the work clock runs out.

I called up my friend Kristina to see if she wanted to go catch the last few rays before the sun went down.  She accepted.  So Kristina, baby Aubrey, my dog Kai and I headed out to play in the sunshine. 

The last time that the three of us girls were at McDonald beach, Aubrey was still inside her Mommy's tummy.  This was the first time she had ever felt the sand between her toes.  She was full of smiles and giggles as we combed the beach shore.
Now, I don't care how old I get, there is still nothing like the feeling of walking on the sand with the waves crashing over your feet.  
I have never related so much to a 6 month old.

Between playing in the sand, frisbee tosses into the water for Kai to retrieve, I pulled out my camera to snap a few shots.  

I thought that these were just too cute not to share.

Hope you enjoy!
