So the blog has been kind of short of pictures of Alena lately. Not sure why that is - I guess she's been napping during picture time. Anyway, I made sure to take the camera today when we were outside. A few weeks ago, Alena hated even having her feet in the sand or grass but she has really warmed up to the idea and today had a great time exploring the sand. She did ingest a small amount, of course, but quickly learned that it didn't taste that great and instead started to throw it. Enjoy the pictures.
