Beach Vacation....Days 1, 2 + 3

My sister and her family arrived at 11:30 am.
Our friends The Browns, who we meet up with every year in San Clemente, arrived an hour later.
We hit Pedro's Tacos for lunch and then the San Clemente Pier to play at the beach.
Dave took the younger kids out boogie boarding.
The whole gang....all 16 of us....
went to Chronic Tacos for dinner and Velvet Yogurt for dessert.
Starting day one off right!

I might have gotten silly in front of Velvet Yogurt and did a cheer in front of the shop!

I'll blame it on a yogurt high!


All the cousins learning to surf at Doheny.
Blake surfing ALL.DAY.LONG.
A little shopping for us girls at Nordstroms.
Dinner at Taka-O.
Best sushi ever!
Sunset on the beach.

Dave happy as can be!

DAY 3 

Playing at the Pier again.
There might be a few kids buried under towels, surfboards and chairs in the back of that truck.
Don't judge....we did it as kids and it was just for a couple of blocks.
Parking is impossible at the Pier and calls for drastic measures.
BBQ Tri Tip dinner for Jill's birthday.
Swinging on the Pier at Sunset.
Cupcakes for dessert!

Also Day 3 included Kaia and my nephew, Michael, dusk/night surfing!

Would you die if I told you that there will be 16 days of our vacation.
Yes, I feel spoiled, and yes we feel like we are in heaven!
Have I mentioned how pretty our beach house is that we are renting?
Not to rub it in...but we got lucky. A brand new place.
Did I also mention we have house guests in our house in Napa...
who locked themselves out and had to do a mini break-in?
Good Times!

I heart comments! Just one rule that I'm sure your momma taught you...if you don't have anything nice to say...please don't say anything at all!
