He was definitely ready. As we walked up to the park, Diego immediately ran to the swings and seemed to be having a hard time deciding on where to go first. Finally he decided for the long metal slide. Over and over. And over. And over. At some point we were all pretty sure we were doing a photo shoot of the slide. But we had a fun time hanging out and taking pictures as he would play "peekaboo" and made a huge game out of trying to run away from the crazy girl with the big camera. Shyness was not an issue with this little boy. I like that!
After a little while we walked down to the beach and had a good time throwing rocks into the ocean and walking on sand. As we got ready to start walking towards the car I decided to lag behind a little so I could take a couple pictures of him and his family headed up the hill. Well, as soon as he figured out that I wasn't walking beside him anymore he turned around and started waving frantically in the distance, trying to make sure that I knew where they were, that they were leaving, and that (silly me) I wasn't there with them!
What a total cutie!
