The other day while going through the pictures on my phone Evangeline insisted we go back to Maui. She even asked that we call Kevin to ask him when I said we couldn't. She cried for a while about wanting to go to the beach. Kev and I promised we would do all we could to try and get her to a beach soon.
When you live in the NW and it is the dead of winter the wave pool in Clackamas will have to do. She seemed to not mind this substitution too much.
