a pilgrimage

We made one to Henry's birthplace last weekend. Santa Cruz is quite possibly the most perfect place in the world. This boy seemed to take to the beach quite easily - apparently he takes after his father. Watching Cody and him drink in the ocean together was like watching the quintessential game of catch between father and son.
Perhaps returning to his roots inspired him to take the next step - literally.

I love those pictures... And really?? He decided to walk the day we left!? I guess he just needed things to calm down a little bit before adding so much excitement :)

Julia - I think watching his grown up cousin Steven was quite inspiring. I've often noticed that my kids seem to have jumps in development when we visit family with kids a bit older than they are.
