{Never} Wordless Wednesday ~ Beach Vacation and Family Visit

     So a couple weeks ago we went on a short, but fun family vacation.  We drove out to California to visit the beach and family.  It was quick, but fun.  We went out to Huntington Beach, CA on our first day there just for a quick visit.

 This was Evan's first trip to the beach and he was not too sure of it.

 Jayden loves the beach and asks to go there all the time.  He was so excited to be there again. He was so excited to see the big waves. 

The next day before heading out to the beach again we stopped by my father in laws business to visit with him and my brother in law.  Jayden was very excited to see his grandpa.  

This is Jayden and Evan with their Grandpa and Uncle Ron is being a photo bomber.

Evan with his Uncle Ron.  The girls at their work said Evan was a Mini Ron because of his red hair.  

Before we left I had to get a quick shot of John and his dad with the boys. 

After we left we headed back out to Huntington Beach again.  We needed more beach time.

Jayden loves to stand in the water and let the waves hit his legs.  He of course had to hold on to daddy.  

Evan was excited to look around, but still not at all sure of the water and waves.  

But Evan loved the sand.

After some playtime in the water the boys decided to build some sand castles. 

Jayden and I had to take one last run in the water before we left.  I wish we could stay there all the time.  The beach was so beautiful and the weather was great. 


  1. Oh the beach sounds so perfect right now!

  2. Ugh, wish we lived near a beach. Miss having them around like we did in MN. Of course it's not the ocean, but hoping to get my boys there one of these days. So great you got to visit the in-laws!

  7. I've never been to California but I'd love to go sometime. It's great that you were able to see your family and spend time with them with the kids too. My grandmother lived in Colorado and my parents took us there several times to visit. I still want to see the beach tho, lol Thank you for the article :)

  8. Me and the kids are enjoying so much time on the beach this summer... It's great to get to see family at the same time.

  9. I may cry. We totally missed out on the beach this year. My kids were so sad. They totally remembered that they were supposed to be there. Looks like you had fun!
