At the Beach

We took a little trip to Cali to play with cousins and go to the beach. It is the perfect vacation. Of course, it would be fun to have Kenyon join us. And it would be nice of Quinn wouldn't eat sand. But other than that...it was pretty great. We can't wait to go back.
Highlights include- trying out different beaches till we were exhausted and then going straight to my sister's pool to swim (and get a little sand off), finding millions of hermit crabs at Shaw's Cove, donuts at Newport Beach, making tie-dye shirts, painting rocks, making s'mores at the beach, shopping without kids, cupcakes from Sprinkles, playing with cousins, and being with my sisters (wish they all could have come).




My sister, Kristine, posted more about our trip on her blog. See here, and here and here.

Love how Quinn can fill up that baby pool. She looks so cute in her little swimsuit/rashguard. But hey--what is with eating SAND?

How come whenever we do tie dye shirts they always end up looking like some ugly jerry garcia mess or someone accidently does the two circles on the chest thing, but yours are so cute?

Your family is adorable. My family would probably be throwing rocks before we would sit together and paint them.

Fabulous vacation! We just got back from CA a couple of weeks ago and it was perfect. Beach, pool, eat, sleep, and repeat! Glad you had a great vacation!
