We were going to go to the sea animals park today, but we overslept and missed it (seems to be a theme around here). Instead, we walked on the beach and had drinky drinks at the Westin across the street.
Why is it that everyone here thinks Gioia is a boy? We had our first hint of confusion on Friday when we dressed her in a white shirt and overalls. We went to buy a swimsuit, and the salesman kept pulling out swim trunks. OK, our bad. Apparently we need to conform to well established gender norms regarding apparel colors. So today, she was all decked out in a pink shirt and a pink sun hat. Then some lady comes up and says, "Why his hat matches my skirt, and I am a woman!" Chris looked at her funny and said, "Umm, SHE is wearing pink because she is a girl." What is up with people? Essentially that woman was trying to tell us off for dressing our (boy) as a girl. Pretty ballsy assumption there, lady.
I think SHE looks beautiful.
