The kids have two days off school. What to do? Let's head to the Museum of Natural History and try our hand at documentary photography.
We declared an adventure day this week and headed to the Seaside Lagoon in Redondo Beach!
It's an enclosed beach with water pumped straight in from the ocean. There are several fountains, two waterslides and lots of sand for digging.
Ahhh, that water is cold! Yep, it's not heated. These kids did quickly create their own warmer spot for "bathing."
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.
Big man here got to try riding a balance bike last week. I think he could walk faster than he rode and spent a good deal of time leaning side to side and yelling that the bike was wobbly. :)
I couldn't resist sharing a recent family picture that my brother captured for us. My baby lives in that carrier every day and for every outing. I love that we have this picture to remember this time.
