"It's finally summer time in California!"
Merrilee texted me this yesterday as we were sitting on the beach. And, it was hot. Like 85 degrees hot. So, yes, we're having a heat wave. Lots to learn about this part of the country!
Jack is loving his train table set up outside. Hard work, peeps.
My good friend, Kelly......pledge sister in Delta Gamma.....came to visit on Thursday. We took the kids to the beach while Carter was in school. Little ones jump waves. So cute.
Kelly and the punks....
Blake made us a fabulous meal. In addition to these lovelies, he made jalapeno burgers. He dressed each burger with slices of cream cheese, bacon and roasted jalapenos. YUM.
We drank wine and played outside with the kids.
Kelly and me. Love this girl!
She read to the punks before bedtime.
Pa arrived just before bedtime and read to the kiddos, too. He had a quick trip out here, so we got a second visit from him!
The children went to bed and then we sat outside enjoying the weather and catching up. So much fun having him here.
Lainey has found a new way to carry Sassy Kitty around. Poor Meow Meow. All these kitties taking her place.
In other news. I got in a wreck on Friday. Seriously, what is going on here, people? Are the Gods of California telling us to pack it up and move on? Not my fault.......but still have to go through the repair process. Ugh. Little ones were in the car, too. Totally shook me up.
Lainey received these cute light up runway heels from my brother, Cody, and his wife, Jody. She LOVES them. Can you tell?
I took the kids to the beach yesterday for several hours and let Blake take a break. Somehow Lainey got in the car without shoes. Good thing I had my Ergo! Right, Coco?
Oceanside has beautiful beaches and it's easy to park and walk to them.
College football on the beach....USC in this case.
More hand holding and wave jumping for the punks. Love this.
Blake played football with the boys. Our little star.....
Time to go. We lasted 6 hours and I have the sunburn to prove it.
Finally, here is a video of Lainey and her birthday present from Caroline. She requested I video her opening it......now I see why!
Carter is a church with neighbors and we're enjoying a lazy Sunday morning at home. Beach this afternoon. Hope you're having a good weekend.
