Yesterday John and I took ten of the kids to the beach. The three older ones had to work, and the five youngest had play dates with friends of ours from church.
We went to Oceanside for the whole day. It was wonderful.
We walked on the pier. We watched someone get surf lessons. We saw a shovelhead shark that someone had caught.
We walked up and down the beach.
We ate the best homemade ice-cream.
Then I made everyone put on lots of sun screen.
The weather was awesome. The water was perfect.
Digging in the sand was really fun until the tide came in.
All the kids enjoyed boogie boarding, but I am pretty sure they all had wipeouts.
The kids must have ran away from a thousand waves.
Just chilling on the beach.
Building sand castles.
Building sand dolphins.
It was fun walking around the marina.
I was the first to spot these sea lions.
John and the kids had fun catching crabs.
We ate at Joe's Crab Shack for dinner.
What a wonderful way to end a wonderful day!
