Its always nice to go down to The Strand, its good to remember that we live at the ocean and not just a hot apartment in the city!  It is really lovely down there and it seems to re-orient me and enjoy life!  Yesterday was the opening of a new gelatto shop and they were giving out free gelatto.  So of course we took advantage of that and went and joined the masses in line.  surprisingly it didn’t take very long and both Eli and Annalise were happy to people watch in the stroller.  Yay!  we let Eli have his own too…strawberry.  He enjoyed it thoroughly!  Next time though, probably vanilla as it was a bit sweet.  I had hazelnet and James had coffee flavor.  Both were super yummy!  We come home in 3 weeks and yesterday I was looking around and having a hard time imagining what snow and no leaves on the trees must look like.  It is absolutely a gorgeous place here and I have to remind myself to look around each day.

Here are a few pics from our outing yesterday….
