Day 3

On the final day of our little vacation we went to the beach.
The girls were just as excited to go to the beach as they were Sea World.

It was a little overcast in the morning but eventually it cleared up.

Brooklyn ran around jumping over the waves that rolled up on shore as well as picking up the rocks and throwing them back in the water.

Kayla dug holes with her "favorite shovel"

and played on the body board.

My parents recently asked me if I wanted my old body board and I knew Kayla would love it so I said yes.
We ended up bringing it with us and Kayla used it the entire time, not just on the sand either she was out in the water riding the waves in as happy as could be!

Eventually we told the girls we had to get back to the hotel and shower up because we knew we wanted to take them to a favorite restaurant.
They were not so happy about leaving the beach but we knew that if we didn't get to dinner somewhat early we would have to wait since it was a Friday night.

The restaurant we went to is called The Beach House and not only is the food amazing but the view is even better!

I'm so glad we got to go but hubby and I made note that next time we don't take the girls to a restaurant that nice.
They could care less and we could not really enjoy it the way we would have liked to,
Lesson learned
Overall it was a fun little getaway with the girls although it would have been nice if we had a few more days to spend on the beach.
Next time!

beautiful pictures Shannon. that restaurant looks so pretty on the water there. I was thinking it wasn't kid friendly but at least you got to go while you were there.

These are such beautiful pics Shannon, I adore the one of Kayla in the waves in front of her daddy and Brooklyn walking on the sand in front of them! I also love Brooklyn's blue dress and swimmers, so cute!! Of course Kayla's were just as nice :)
Looks like a great beachy vacation!

Awesome photos! Looks like a perfect day. I bet my boys wouldn't have wanted to leave either.

So fun! We are on vacation right now in So Cal, too! (I know you are back home now). My girls love the beach, too. They are spending hours jumping in the waves. I always love to see what you and your girls are up to, thanks for always sharing great photos!

We love that restaurant. We vacation at The Pacific Edge almost every year with the whole family and they are the "room service" menu for that hotel so I usually get to make a meal from there at least once. Looks like you made some very special memories with your hubby and darling girlies. P.S. their swimsuits are super cute :) Hoping your Fourth of July is just as special. Hugs, Valerie
