Summer has ended.. officially.. tonight. Our kids go back to school tomorrow and I have had such a hard time wrapping my brain around that fact that I forgot about Kindergarten orientation AND meet the teacher. (I stink as a parent this week)
Anyway, moving on... I decided I better post about our GREAT summer vacation to Newport Beach! It has been a summer tradition for quite some time, but this year, the G-pa and the K-lo pulled out ALL of the stops and rented a beach house for all of us to stay in. It was right on the Boardwalk where we could watch all of the beach traffic go by.
Unfortunately, it was an interstate freeway where people were traveling at 55 mph and we did have ONE incident where this guy(my nephew Carson) Got run over by a very aware and spry biker who managed to bail off his bike as they collided. WHEW! Besides.. who wants to collide with the INCREDIBLE HULK??? (I didn't get any pictures of the carnage.. but everyone was ok)
We had a phenomenal view of the ocean every day and it made me realize why people put up with the prices and traffic of So-Cal... because the weather is HEAVENLY.
I mean, who wouldn't want to walk out the front door to THAT every morning!
We hit the beach every day and had LOTS of entertainment from all of the cousins. G-pa and K-lo even figured out a way to incorporate whipping cream into the fun. The only thing we could figure out is that they had a life long dream of spraying grand kids with whipping cream and letting them run around... Click on it if you want to see the whip cream heads up close!
All of my babies had the best time. As a matter of fact, Jaxon requested just today that we pack up our bags and go to the "cool house on the beach!" A boy after my own heart...
Trust me Jaxon, all I want to do everyday is lay on the beach too....
Some must have/dos for the beach?
