A weekend of beach trips

We are having beautiful weather here (as usual, haha.  But seriously, even better than usual.)  To celebrate, we went to the beach on Friday with most of the other kids and moms in our ward (which equals two other moms besides me, and 4 other kids besides Violet).  I wish so much that I'd had my camera at the beach, because the kids had SO MUCH FUN.  They played in the water almost the whole time!  Aren't they brave?  Because let me tell you, the water is still very cold.  We went the the beach in the Marina, so there are no waves, and it is very shallow.  It is perfect water for the kids to play in.  There is also a playground on the beach.  We took a picnic, and it was just a really fun time.

On Friday night, we had a ward party where Violet got a kite as a gift in a white elephant exchange.  Glenn wanted to try it out right away, so we went out to Manhattan Beach for the afternoon on Saturday.  We haven't been to the beach in the afternoon much, so we were surprised how crowded it was.  We had a great time, but there wasn't enough of a breeze to get the kite up.  Oh well.  

(before the beach on Friday.  The hat and glasses lasted for about 3 seconds once we were at the beach)

(p.s. Cheeri - If you are reading this, I just wanted to tell you that Violet finally grew into that whale dress and this the first time she has worn it, and we got so many compliments on it.  Everyone wanted to know where I got it, and I just said, "It is a hand me down, and my sister in law has good taste.")


  1. Whales are perfect beach attire:)

  2. Love that whale dress! I have another one that Ruby will be able to wear this summer. I got all that Gymboree whale stuff on ebay before Ruby was born.

  3. This comment has nothing to do with your beach trips, although it looks like you had lots of fun. I just wanted to tell you I just wrote your naan recipe in my cooking for one-handed mamas book. I always make it when we have indian butter chicken but I always have to go searching all over your blog to find it. No more! Haha!
