Annual Morning Beach Trip

Every summer my mom (gram-me) and I take the kids to the beach for the morning. The only problem with doing it once a year is that we can never quite remember how to get there. Gram-me and I have no sense of direction (unlike aunt meli and grandpa, who weren't with us). So we were clever and programmed the GPS so we wouldn't have any problems getting there. Well that only works if you actually listen to where it is telling you to go. :) So after several detours and a ferry boat trip across Balboa we made it to the beach. It was a great trip, the kids loved riding the ferry and we even made a special trip to "Sprinkles" for some yummy cupcakes.

The kids had a blast playing in the sand, and making little castles.

Cora loved playing in the sand. She wasn't to thrilled however with how it tasted :)

Trevor and Gram-me were the only ones who actually touched the water. Trevor really thought the waves were cool.

Here is Lizzie, looking for shells. She is in her comfort zone...far away from the water. She is my quirky little girl.

Gram-me then treated the kids to some yummy food,. This is one of my favorite parts of the annual trip. We love Ruby's and having it served off the end of a pier makes it somehow even better. The kids love walking around and looking at all the fish that people have caught.

You and your Mom know how to have fun! I miss the beach. That is a great tradition. I hope you and the cutie on the way are doing well.
