One of the great things I love about beaches near where I grew up are that the beaches are cold and overcast during the summer. I still enjoy the bright hot beaches of southern California but I also love the wild natural beaches on the Central Coast. This week we found a remote little cove that was perfect for my kids to wander around. I definitely want to go back whenever I visit the area.

My dear friend has joined the three kid club with the cutest little baby girl. I was so honored to be able to take some photos of her with her big siblings. Even looking through the computer screen, I still want to pinch those chubby cheeks and brush her hair. What a doll!
