Longing for the sand

We tried going to the drive-in tonight, but apparently the rest of California had the same idea. We're all about the trendsetting. So instead we attempted a couple u-turns and tried to outsmart the crowds, but only ended up going home. Ikey was in a groichy mood anyway, so it night be better that she got in bed on time.

We've been having a blast this summer, so much so that I'll have no desire to let it out of claws come September. We'll finally, hopefully, have our first beach trip next week and I can't wait. To live in California and not go to the beach in almost a year is pretty close to being a crime. We have been diligent, however, in our pool duties, and I've secured a pretty decent tan, so all is not lost.

We've had a trip to a local waterpark and have played in the fountain at the mall till little toes were pruned. We've sampled every bit of fruit (no vegetables) at the Farmer's Market and have brand-new butterflies on our table. Yes, I think our summer has been a success.

And God-willing, many sandy, wind-blown days and road trips await us.


  1. I see Starbucks and it looks so yum!

    I can't get over how big your kiddos are, where did the time go!

    Your summer sounds wonderful :)

  2. We went to the beach yesterday for the first time in 4 years. It took us about 3 hours to get there since we live in the high desert. It ended up costing us nearly $50 in gas. $15 in parking and we waited in an hourlong car line to get in. About an hour into it the temperature dropped and everyone began to leave. It was freezing! It was definately a fun time full of memories but wow! I remembered why we hardly ever go!!!

  3. I forgot to add, pack food! Bring a cooler! Have fun!!!

  4. That's so cool. Arn't you glad that STarbucks has a no smoking policy now?
