Morning on the Beach

Who doesn't love the beach? Whenever I visited the beach in the past, especially in southern California, I always wished I had some reason to live close. My parents left late Monday morning, but first we drove out to the beach! It was so cool to realize how close we live! Even with traffic (bad traffic) it only took us about half an hour to drive there.



(My dad was the only brave one who went in deeper than his knees)




Violet seemed a little nervous. I'm sure it was loud and smelled different to her, and she just stayed snuggled up to us and wrapped in a blanket the whole time. I have big plans to drive out to the beach some morning, just the two of us, once Glenn has left for school and the traffic has died down. I'll bring a book and a picnic!


  1. Jealous, jealous, jealous! Oh how I wish we were living in Southern California again! Hope all is well!

  2. that would be so amazing!! marsh & chels are about the same distance from the beach, but their closest one is newport. santa monica is a fun place!! {great shopping on the promenade too} amy has a little cafe that she goes to when she's there, she says it is amazing & they make fresh croissants every morning. i'll get the name & text ya! how much longer til glenn starts school?

  3. I love those photos! When I come, let's go there and then ride that ferris wheel I saw in one of the pictures. This is Courtney, btw.

  4. The reason I said "This is Courtney, btw" is because I thought i was signed into Mom's.

  5. Courtney - yes! Let's ride that ferris wheel when you come! Glenn can hold Violet.

    Becky, text me the name of that place! Glenn and i want to go there. We love croissants!
