We made a trip up to Carpinteria State Beach for a fun afternoon-- as soon as we got the cars unloaded, the kids headed for the water.
Jacob had better luck getting Ellie's feet in the water but she still wasn't happy about it!
The kids had fun playing in the sand and in the water.
Since there were so many kids, everyone had someone to play with!
We packed lunches and ate at the beach! Ben was intrigued with the seaweed (we don't have much of it at our beaches) and decided to take a bite-- he was NOT impressed!
Miss Ellie was NOT happy if I left her on my chair so I could take pictures... until she realized that I left my Pepsi!
More beach fun :)
Such a sweetheart
The kids had fun digging for sand crabs.
The big kids played out in the waves for hours!
Playing in the waves and on the sand.
After a fun day at the beach we headed back to the grandparents' house for pizza and s'mores!
S'more fun :)
Jacob's other sister and her family were able to come down for the day and the kids enjoyed getting to know the girls!
She's tutu crazy!!
Playing with awesome Auntie Beth!! Ellie thought this game was the best thing ever and wanted to do it over and over and over again!
Journey and Ellie are about two weeks apart and had fun playing with the babies.
