Surfing, Seafood and a Birthday!

 Once upon a time, in a land, far, far away, lived a pretty little princess.

Even though her grandparents didn't live in the same kingdom as the princess, they loved her very much and traveled great distances to see her.

On their journey, they saw the beautiful, blue ocean of the Pacific.

They mingled with the wildlife.

They even took time to learn new skills.

You never know when a princess might need to be rescued by the Lochness Monster.

To ensure the princess' safety, the royal guards were dispatched to search below...

...and above.

When the coast was cleared, the guards returned.

Meanwhile, the pretty, little princess was waiting at the royal palace for her guests to arrive for the birthday ball.

In order for the guests to have a truly wonderful time, the cake needed to be just right.

"Yes", she declared, "this will do."

 Then the princess said, "Let them eat cake!"

And they did.

It wasn't all about cake, though.

It was also about seafood.

Specifically, mussels and oysters. In a butter and wine sauce.

Oh yeah.

Now that the kingdom is quiet and the princess is officially two, it is time for the grandparents to return to their kingdom.

But not without saying first...
