Beachin'

Summer started and we hit the ground running and haven't really stopped since!!

We got in two weeks of swim lessons.  Jacob improved so much this year!



Every summer we get a Pismo/Avila trip in.  This year we stayed at the Pismo Coast RV Village in our trailer.  A big money saver compared to hotel-ing it! 

We spent one day at Pismo Beach.  There were a million sand crabs and clams!  The boys even found a couple alive sand dollars.  It was beautiful weather.  The water was freezing.



We tried to teach them how to use the boogie board.



Jacob collected hundreds of crabs and shells in this green bucket.


Cruz tried to help find some crabs too.





Can't be at the beach without getting buried in the sand!
 

We escaped a horrible heat wave back home.  It was over 100 degrees everyday we were gone.  And this guy, had the audacity to complain of being cold at the beach! I'd rather be cold at the beach than burning up back home!!


As the day went on the boys got more and more comfortable with the waves and the water.  Brave little guys were going in pretty deep!


My 4 beach dudes:


At the RV campground there was a heated pool.  So even after a long day at the beach the boys swam. They rode bikes in the dark with glow sticks around their necks.  We went on a walk over to the sand dunes by the pool.  We, of course, got ice cream in Pismo and roasted marshmallows by the fire.


We did a second beach day at Avila beach.  The water was warmer but there weren't any sand crabs and the shore was full of rocks and some seaweed.  The kids swam in the water more because it wasn't as cold as Pismo Beach the day before.







Every time we are in the area we go feed the animals at Avila Barn





and we go on the hay ride


This year Vincent spotted a snake.  They followed that thing around everywhere.  It was making me nervous.  I was afraid the snake would get annoyed and snap at them.


I love my crazy crew.  We had a great trip to the coast!
