To the beach!

We went to Goleta beach last Wednesday with the Hansen side. Jen and her family were here from Virginia. California was just one of their many stops. It was so good to see them. We hadn't met each others youngest. The kids had such a great time hanging out.

Krystal rode with us to the beach, her and Nathan fell asleep on Teresa - so cute!

It was a little foggy and cold, but the fog cleared up and none of the kids complained about it being cold. They were having too much fun.

I love this picture of the boys. Myrna had boogie boards for the kids to play on

Nathan is burying Diesel's feet. Diesel is the Mattson's dog
Everyone pitching in to build a sand structure. Later it was decorated with seaweed

The "sand" was more like dirt at this beach. Nathan was SO dirty. Before we left the kids gathered a huge pile of seaweed
The beach wasn't the greatest beach, but the kids didn't care. They had such a great time! It was hard to say goodbye, but I don't think we will soon forget the fun we had.

Okay, that looks like great fun! I remember when I loved the sand and all the "stuff" of the beach! You do such a great job with that camera too, Jolene.

I think you and your family single-handedly keep the CA beaches in business :)
