Beach Day!

This past Sunday, Kai and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary and decided we wanted to lay low and enjoy it with the kids. We are planning a weekend getaway in a month or so, so we figured spending this special day of ours with the kids relaxing at the beach would be nice. I am normally not a fan of the beach. For years I have hated it, simply because living in Orange County means every summer our beaches are packed to the brim with tourist-which is fun-but finding parking AND a spot on the beach is nearly impossible ESPECIALLY with two kids. However I told myself that it is time to simply get over it and start having fun with it. 

This was Makaio's second time at the beach, the first time he was teeny tiny so he didn't do much other than sleep. To say that he LOVED it would be an understatement. That boy has a love for the  ocean running through his veins just like his daddy. He showed no fear and started crawling straight to the water! He also apparently was really interested in finding out what sand tasted like. 

The beach was pretty empty and the weather was beautiful. We had a great few hours of fun. Isabella has always been really weary of the beach-hates the texture of the sand and the ocean freaks her out- so it was nice to see her following her little brothers lead and enjoying the beauty of it. 

This year I made a promise to myself that I would get our family to be more active and try to do more outdoor activities. I want my kids to have beautiful memories of doing things like going to the beach, camping, hiking, etc. This was a good start to that.

Right before we started packing up to head home we saw a pair of dolphins swimming so close to the shore. It was such a fun things for Isabella to see and it brought me peace. 

Spring is here and summer is right around the corner so I am making  a list of fun things to do with the kiddos!
