I got up this morning and went for a run on the beach. So good. Then back to the house to make pancakes and bacon for breakfast. By 9 a.m., we were all ready to go and rolling down the 101 to Cardiff.
We backed into a spot right on the beach and settled in for a couple of hours. The kids built castles, played on boogie boards, and Toben got in some surfing.
It was a little bit cool today at the beach, so they were all happy to have their new surf hoodies that we picked up last night at Hansen's. Every kid needs a good surf hoodie:
My surfing kids:
I sat in the back of the car, reading and looking up to take pictures like these from time to time.
And look! I even managed to get in a picture or two...
My spot at the beach (finished another spy novel):
Me and "my" boys
After lunch, we headed to Mike McGills for some skate stuff--new stickers for Tobin's board and a cool shirt. Lowden loves Legos; Tobin (yep, another Tobin, but this one with an "i") loves to skate. So the boys each got to do their favorite thing this weekend.
Then we headed over to the Encinitas YMCA to check out the skate park. Tobin wasn't quite ready to drop in to the pool here, but said next time for sure!
Tomorrow? Donuts at the beach for breakfast for them, a run along the beach for me. Then packing up and hitting the road back to Phoenix.
