Bolsa Chica State Beach

I was skeptical when Jeff proposed taking the kids to the beach. Not only are we white as ghosts from living in Oregon, but I was concerned about watching all of the kids in the ocean. My pessimism was unfounded though, and we had a GREAT time. Garrett, Grace and John especially loved everything about the beach. Emma was too cold and has negative memories of the water from our St. Martin trip to really enjoy it, and Jacob did not like walking on the sand. Or getting sand dumped on his head. Repeatedly.

Thaose collages are WONDERFUL!!! The beach is WAY more fun with the kids than I thought it could be as well. I'm so glad you had fun!

So glad that your pessimism didn't come true too...nothing better than a trip to the beach! I'm hoping we get to take the girls to the beach this year too at a toddler-friendly beach. Out trip to Tahoe last year had water that was too cold!

Melissa said...

How fun! I love all the photos. The kiddies look like they had a blast. The sand on poor little Jacobs head, and Emma covered up!
R&R is the best!

Looks like a great time! However, I didn't see All of you guys in those middle pictures. There seemed to be someone missing..hmm I wonder who that is?:) I seem to be missing from our pictures as well.:):) I know I wouldn't make it into a beach picture. Your kids are so cute.

Shannon said...

Spectacular photos! Nothing better than babies in the sand, I always say! Glad you had a good time and welcome back.

Not to draw your attention to it, but I am in one picture.....second row in third row up from the bottom......

Laura said...

Love the pictures! Love the sunshine. I am so glad your kids soaked up the sun! My girls would not walk on sand at that age either. We have such funny videos of that stage. It was absolute terror!

Laura said...

Yeah I saw you in the collage but it was itty bitty tiny and I was hoping for a bigger photo. Pretty please!

Dru said...

Angie, if I ever have kids, I want them to be just like yours : )

Ohhh those are great! You may have just inspired me. The kids havent been to the beach on the west coast ever. They played in Cape Cod but they wouldn't remember it. I must take them. :D

What a fun trip! My kids love the beach, and now that they're getting a bit older and more self-sufficient I love it again too.
