We had the great opportunity to go to California and stay in a beach house for a little over a week. We had a BLAST! Bryan's parents rented a beach house that was just ONE block from the beach. It was so great to get out of the heat and relax for a week in cool, beautiful weather. The first few days we were there it was rainy but so beautiful. You could see the beach from our rooftop deck. It was nice to just sit around and relax and enjoy the company of family. Bryan's parents were there, his brother Andy and his girlfriend Vanessa came and his cousin Randal came also. It was fun playing games and just getting to know each other better.
Bethanie had a hard time sleeping during the night (what's new?) so I was tired but it was nice getting to relax. Bethanie and I took a stroll on the beach one morning when we were the only ones awake...it was beautiful. Bethanie loves people watching so she had a great time. Towards the end of the week the weather cleared up and it was PERFECT beach weather. Bethanie got to go to the beach for the first time and LOVED it. She got to swing in a swing and go down a slide for her first time as well and loved all of her new adventures. As you can see from the pictures she enjoyed walking in the water and eating things that probably should not have gone in her mouth (seaweed and sand). She was so much fun to watch as she enjoyed it all. Bryan got to boogie board and had tons of fun doing that as well.
Overall it was a great week! OH YEAH...Bryan and I snuck away and left Bethanie with the grandparents one day and went and got pedicures and massages. It was WONDERFUL!
Enjoy the pictures! :)
