Labor Day weekend we went to visit my parents in San Diego and we planned to make our one and only trip of the Summer to the beach. Wouldn't you know it? The marine layer was really thick when we got there at 10am and did NOT wear off AT ALL. So it was pretty cold, but at least it wasn't crowded! Russell spent a lot of time with the girls walking into the water
and promptly running back out with the tide
Nathan also spent some time running away from the water. But he was very cool and collected about it and seemed to be showing everyone that he wasn't really afraid of the water, he just would rather stay dry.
The girls had SOOOO much fun it made me wish we had taken them more this Summer.
Nathan spent most of the time with me . . . up on the blanket. . . out of the cold. I was trying to protect him from the cold water and it had absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I was feverishly reading The Hunger Games
Nathan thought he was a big help when the girls decided to start collecting rocks. I thought it was pretty cute.
We had a good time. Well, at least THEY did. These faces say it all . . .
After lunch and naps the kids had some fun in the pool with their cousins Sara and Kaleb and their Uncle Matt
