The next morning, since I still had work off, we went to the beach for a do-it-yourself photo shoot. Despite being an island girl, Maia has never been to the beach. Well, when she was one month old, we did go to a beach park, but didn't even get on the sand. Maia turned 6 months old the day before Thanksgiving, so we felt it was time to take some pics to remind ourselves that we do live on an island.
This is the result of us trying to make Maia look at the camera. It was a lot of work!
And now we are sitting at home, enjoying being together and feeling thankful for it.
