Lovin the Beach

My family loves the beach! Any beach, any time. The kids can play for hours and I always feel truly relaxed. There is something so wonderful about packing a lunch, a magazine, and a couple shovels and pails and knowing you are all set. It's almost too easy.  During the Summer the kids and I go once a week with friends but the beach is also a favorite for family vacations. Nothing can keep us away. Here are some of our favorites...

My boys on Doheny state beach

One of our favorite spots is camping on the Colorado River at Moabi. You get your own stretch of private beach. Heaven!

Every member of the family enjoys it. Is Chief on vacation or what?!

Another favorite are the beaches in Big Sur. It's unbelievably gorgeous there and if you go off season you can practically have the beach entirely to yourself. 

This is proof that nothing stops us from going to the beach. This is my 3rd born at 2 weeks old. We went camping at El Capitan.

Our most recent trip was to the Sacramento Delta. A little stretch of beach was all the kids needed to have a great time. 

Happy beach going everyone!
