Oceanside, 2011

It's that time of year again...


We took our annual trip to the beach with my family a couple of weeks ago. It was wonderful. And it was an especially big deal because it was this little guys first time ever. I think he liked it...


Photobucket


Here are a few pictures of the kids having the time of their lives beaching it up. I have said this before and will continue to say it...there's nothing more entertaining and stimulating and just plain fun for kids than a day at the beach. (In my opinon.) They can spend hours digging in the sand and playing in the waves and never get tired of it. Just perfectly content. It's really the best thing ever.





This is Eden and my sister's littly boy, Ryder. They are both three. They had such a great time together and got along amazingly. Not one fight in a whole week together. Pretty impressive for a couple of crazy littler toddlers. :)

Here they are doing some unprompted hand-holding. Cute, huh.


More smiley-baby pictures...
(this baby is absolutely delightful, that's all I have to say.)








No trip to Southern California would be complete without a meal at our favorite Mexican place. El Pollo Maria...


Eden in my brother's hoodie with her Aunt Jess and cousin Allie. She was so well taken care of by my family. It was nice to have the help. :)

My neice Abbie and Luke...

The toddlers on a walk with Grandma and Grandpa...

My parents with their grand kids... A family picture.

My hair always goes wacky in California. Darn humidity.


We took a day off from the beach to go to the San Diego Zoo. It was awesome!

First stop, the flamingos...

We got to watch them feed the elephants...seriously amazing animals...

Eden's face while watching...



More animals...





Our favorite animals were the Pandas. They were so cute they hardly seemed real. Seriously, check out this one eating some bamboo...



The kids loved the zoo. There were so many amazing animals to see. Other favorites were the gorillas, orangutans, lions, tigers, rhinos, and koalas. The koalas came in as a close 2nd in cuteness to the pandas. But my darn camera died by the end so I didn't get any pictures of them. I am so glad we were able to go and experience such an amazing place!

Seriously Lindsay, you win for having the cutest kids. Their faces are so delicious. How do you stand it?

We are headed to CA soon and I can't wait. These pictures make me antsy to leave.

Thanks for your email the other day. I'm sorry I haven't written back. It's been a little crazy around here, but I haven't forgotten and I will write back!

Totally agree with the beach comment! My absolute favorite vacations as a kid were spending days at the beach doing nothing in particular and having a great time!
