Ventura Beach

Yesterday the boys and I had the best day at the beach.  We drove to Ventura to meet up with the MOMS club.  Turns out there were only a couple of other moms, but we kinda did our own thing anyway.  Kevin and Zach love getting in the water, so they spent the first part of the morning running in and out of the waves, while I watched them like a hawk.  Then after lunch and after I put the camera away I told them I would go in with them so that we could go a little deeper.  Zach was knocked down many times but I was holding on with a death grip to his little hand.  Each time he would get back up smiling, ready for more.  Eventually he said, "My hand hurts", but I told him I was not letting go until we were out of the water!  We stayed about 6 hours and the boys have never been so wiped out.  Zach didn't wake up once last night or come into our room asking to sleep with us.  I guess I just need to keep going back!!

What a fun day! It's amazing how wiped out kids can get just by playing in the water! By the way, are the cloudy skies from the fires? It looks the same up here too...

What a GREAT day at the beach you all had. Amazing how the combo of the water and the salt air can completely knock you out. The boys looked like they were having a great time. Zach certainly looked like he was down for the count riding home. I know Ventura is closer for you but we would LOVE for you all to come down and go to the beach here any time you would like. Love you all, Susan

Fun Fun! I totally know what you mean about the death grip! When we went on space mountain, I held on to Gianna's leg so hard- i gave her a bruise!

What a fun day for the boys!! I always think a beach day for little boys is the best...they are outside in fresh air and getting lots of exercise and they LOVE it! When the boys were young we spent many of summer days at Avenue E beach in Redondo and Garrett and Matt always loved it. They still do!!!
Plus, what is not to like for the mother?!!
