We took the kids to the beach for the first time, and It was so much fun. They had a blast running in the sand, playing catch, and for a while, we went into the freeZing water and tried to beat the waves. I can’t even tell you the amount of sea water we drank from falling so many times. Haha! It felt so nice being outside with a cool breeze, and have sand in between our toes. Weekends like these are the main reason why I miss living in California so much. But, both Joe and I agreed we really could never live in California. It’s a beautiful state and all, but way to fast pace for us. The traffic, the lines at the store, and just over all living in California is too much for us to handle ?. Does anyone else agree?

My arms are soo sore from this weekend. I’m not sure if it was from having to carry a teething babe the entire trip, or the fact that we decided to take the most difficult way to the beach on Saturday. We took a stroller, a playpen, a cooler full of drinks and fruit, and all the other things I packed that I thought would be necessary for the beach, up the steepest hill. Lol. Whatever, At least we got a good workout out of it.

We love heading down for a few days to see our family since all my cousins, aunts and uncles live down there it’s always so nice to just catch up. But by the end of the trip, we are so ready to be back home. Since we travel on the road to California, it gives us plenty of time to chit chat about life and listen to some good music. What a typical 5-hour drive would be, takes us 7 hours, Because of kids. Haha. So many potty breaks, hungry bellies, and you know those wandering eyes which lead to many stops.

This trip we decided to upgrade Xander’s infant car seat to his big boy Evenflo Stratos Convertible Car Seat. He absolutely loved it, and to our surprise, he slept the majority of the way to California. We only had to stop a few times for diaper changes and feedings. His new car seat made our summer trip to the beach a whole lot easier, with the amount of room he was given to play with his toys and he was even lucky enough to get the window seat. So happy we chose Evenflo to come with us on our first Summer Vacation, and we can not wait to go back.
