We're checking things off our summer bucket list and it isn't even July yet!
The swing of summer has officially grabbed us..as evidenced by our sandy shoes, the sandy car, and a sandy house. But I'm not complaining. I love every minute of it!
The best parts of summer are staying up late, seeing friends, and using the beach as a substitute for a bath. All of the above defined our week. :)
We were able to meet up with Stacie, Ellie, and Lola on Wednesday at La Jolla Shores - we love seeing these girls. the kids wasted no time finding some fun in the sand!
Running to the waves?
No! Who needs a whole ocean when you have a puddle?!
Lexi getting in the mix!
La Jolla Shores has the added bonus of a park!
Such a great day - we're looking forward to many more summer play dates with the Mezzadri girls!
That night Aunt Kristin, Ella, and Lily came over for pizza - both of the hubbies were busy with other things, so Krissy and I took advantage of not making dinner. We had a pizza picnic in the park followed by a trip over to Golden Spoon for some frozen yogurt. Late summer nights are the best. :)
Both Lexi and Ella ended up as diapered darlings after some messy pizza.
We headed to the splash pad the next day with Cassidy and Samantha, but quickly changed plans when we saw the crowds and felt the heat. We happily accepted an invitation to swim in the Klock's pool as an alternative! No pictures of the kiddos swimming because we were in the water. But here are a few pre-swim. :)
Lexi giving Samantha some love :)
We hit up the beach again on Friday...with a new member added to the group! Baby Brody, just one month old, ventured out for his first (of what I'm sure will be many) beach days!
I'd say he's loving it!
Declan always has to check out the babies :)
The tide was low so the kids ventured out further than usual. They had so much fun - purposely falling and letting the waves carry them.
Stop everything - the train is going by!
The entire time we were at the beach a pod of dolphins stayed within our line of sight. We even saw babies!
Lexi, who just cut two of her two year molars was not as into the water as she usually is. She was much happier hanging with Kylie and Brody closer to dry land.
Adam and I ended the week by taking the kids to see Monster University. This is Declan's third time at the movies, and Lexi's second (although she was barely one last time we went). They both did great. I did take Lexi out of the theater the last half hour. She is not much of a movie/TV girl, so I'm impressed she lasted as long as she did!
Captivated by previews. :)
Entertaining herself while Daddy and Dec finish the movie.
And the head band comes off!
Yeah for summer!
