Redondo Beach

Saturday we spent the day doing a lot of errands together as a family, which is actually fun! We all get to still spend time together and get things done for our family. While out and about we were sure to incorporate some fun stuff into the day like lunch out, Ikea play area, dinner out and best of all... Rodondo Beach!

The sun was shining, it was warm and we had never been to Rodondo Beach. So, today was the day. We took a walk along the board walk and then took in the beach with the kids. Holly and Hudson both had a really nice time playing in the sand. I think this summer will hold several more beach play dates for us... my kids love it, really love it!

Busy, Busy Days

Homeschooling keeps us busy. Playing with friends keeps us busy. Growing up keeps us busy. The garden keeps us busy. Sunshine keeps us busy. Learning keeps us busy. Time with family keeps us busy. Naps keep us busy. Weekends with daddy home keeps us busy. Life keeps us busy.

Here is a snapshot of our busy, busy days!

Holly's Birthday Party @ Owen Beach

Last weekend we enjoyed a fantastic celebration at Owen Beach for Holly's 6th Birthday. The weather cooperated beautifully and the kids all adored spending several hours on the beach. They spent so much time exploring, collecting, playing in the drift wood hut, building water collecting holes and so much more! All the kids also created a beach relief project right in the sand with sea shells, little bits of drift wood and special beach stones they collected - this was really fun, some kids even made two.

Here is her party in reverse... as I am pretty frustrated with blogger right now - moving photos around is a night mare any more. Might have to look for a different host site, ugh!
