We got to go to Laguna with the Bannings (well, three out of the four of them, anyway) again this weekend — a much welcomed post-Thanksgiving mini-vacation. First up on Friday afternoon was a walk to the beach for Cari, Bruce and the kids.
I, on the other hand, got a nap … in this perfect spot on the deck.
Saturday, we took a morning trip to the little aquarium in Dana Point, which was mildly successful but I think we were all just too sleepy to really enjoy it. After a little rest back at the house, we took the kids down to the beach where a good time was had by all. Here are some of my favorite pictures.
After the kids did more running and jumping than I can imagine doing in a whole week, we finally made it over to some tide pools. Lots of warm water for the kids to jump in and some really interesting sea life.
Bruce found the tiniest hermit crab ever.
Ezra and Ruby really enjoyed the tide pools.
We managed to get the kids out and back to the house without too many meltdowns. The busy day paid off — they were all conked out by 7:30.
