Last weekend we decided to escape the heat here in Pasadena (temps hovering around 100 degrees!). So, on Saturday we went to see our friends Stefanie, Henry and Holger in Santa Monica.

Henry was curious about Alex and seemed to want to play with her not realizing that she’s just a little squat…

While Alex was doing some tummy time on their fun mat.
We then went to the beach in Malibu for lunch and on a fun little hike in the Santa Monica Mountains at the Peter Strauss Ranch park.
On Sunday it was still hot so we took a drive around Big Tujunga Canyon in the San Gabriel Mountains. Kiddo was really fussy the whole way and finally fussed so much that it was lunch time so we stopped at a nice picnic area in the canyon.

And then we went swimming at our friend Rae’s house. This was Alex’s first time in the pool. I tried to get her in slowly but then Doug said, “Give her to me!” and put her in up to her waist. After a minute or so she really started liking being in the water and now even likes taking a bath!
