Savoring Summer

We have had the best Summer.  Russell usually works construction or custodial work during the summers, but this year he got to work Summer School for the month of June and there was no construction work for him, so he got to stay home for 4 weeks in July.  We rode bikes everyday, went to the beach, went swimming, went on family bike rides, and went on jogs together. Oh and I went shopping and did errands in the middle of the day... kidless! It was wonderful; however, all good things must come to an end.  Friday the 27th was his last weekday off.  We decided to make the most of it and went to San Diego one day earlier than we needed to for a wedding and went to the beach.  Oceanside Harbor is my favorite beach, probably because that is where I grew up going.  It was perfect weather at the beach... not too hot and the water was cool, but easy to get used to.  My mom kept Lydia for us so we just took the older kids and enjoyed the sun and water with them.
Morgan and Madylin were proud to say that they went in the ocean all by themselves this time.  
STOP growing up!
We didn't take many pictures, but I LOVE this one.
My little beach babies just appreciating the beauty and sound of the ocean while munching on licorice.  Our Summer with Daddy is over...boo.
Kindergarten starts in 2 weeks!
