Weekend Adventure: Beach Bums

We had one of those weekends that was totally exhausting and relaxing at the same time. It was just the right amount of rest and activity-ing that makes me feel all accomplished and refreshed, totally ready for the week to come. Oh, and between the 4 of us, we have been to the beach 3 times in the last 4 days. Beach bums, we are.

The weather has been perfect. Blue skies, highs in the 70s, coastal breezes, sunshine. We were outside 90% of the weekend. Today, we headed to Redondo beach with some friends. There are tons of shops and cafes near the beach, but we went straight for the sand. It was prime sandcastle weather and the kids had some digging to do.

Beatrice wanted to take her shirt off to be like her best buddy, Isaac. That's the cool thing about being 2: you can totally go shirtless at the beach.

It was kind of an idyllic day. So idyllic that I barely took any photos. The toddlers played for nearly 3 hours, the babies slept, the parents relaxed and talked. Dolphins were swimming, birds were fishing, surfers were surfing. I love that this is becoming a normal thing for us. California, where have you been all my life? Hanging on the west coast the whole time. Okay, cool.

We came home and finished up some projects around the house while the girls napped. We had a great weekend. I'm gonna sleep good tonight!
