LA - Day 2
Our 2nd day in LA was Silas' surgery day. Cara, Jason, and Silas left early to go to the surgery center in Beverly Hills. The girls and I woke up around 6am. We hung out at the beach house until about 8am and then headed down to Manhattan Beach! This was thew view as we were walked down! It was a beautiful morning and the beach was about 3 blocks away. We were the only ones on the beach besides the surfers! It was chilly but the girls got their feet in the ocean anyway. I sat and watched the waves and the girls playing in the water. Our day went like this: beach, shopping, lunch, beach, shopping...it was a great day! Downtown Manhattan Beach is full of shops. We just looked around for fun. That afternoon we also hung out on the deck at our beach house and relaxed. CJ took a nap and Madelyn watched a movie. We then made dinner for Jason, Cara, and Silas who arrived home at supper time. We made tacos. Dinner was especially good because Cara and Jason showed up with fresh salsa and guacamole to go with our fiesta! Silas came home in good spirits. Below is a pic of Silas after they got home. He has to wear his Nike hat to keep the cup on his ear in place and everything safe. His little Buzz doll was even bandaged up by the nurses! He sure was a trooper through all of his surgery!
