Carlsbad: Part 1

 We got to Carlsbad on Saturday night so we got settled in and went to bed. On Sunday, we went to church and then decided to check out the beach.
Ellie really loved the sand.
 My kids were not dressed for the beach but oh well. We didn't let them get wet that day.

 Digging in the sand with the frisbee.
 Boss was so good with the kids at the beach and took them walking by the water.
 Petey collected probably 45 sea shells that we've brought home.
 Boss was being silly with Spidey on the way home.

The next day, we decided to get the kids in bathing suits and do a real beach trip.
 Ellie looked adorable in her swimsuit and hat that was way too small. :)
 Trying to get everyone out the door was a challenge. Every time we tried to walk away from the condo, somebody would need something else inside. :) Eventually, we did leave the condo. And yes, that big house in the middle of all those condos is where we stayed. It is so beautiful there!
 Spidey love love LOVED the water.

 Since Andrea and Jp just moved to AZ from CA last week, they had this awesome beach tent that was pretty convenient for all of us.
 Petey loved getting in the water but she was freezing when she got out so Boss made her a warm little spot in the sand. :) She's the cutest little mermaid I've ever met.
Can you tell this boy was happy?
 Again, a freezing Petey was trying to find a way to get warm. She found a warm spot in the sand and just layed there for a while, periodically turning from her back to her tummy.

 Hi, K Bear!
 The kiddos loved building sandcastles and digging.
Everyone was so so SO sandy by the end and getting all of that sand off was not fun but it was worth it for a fun day at the beach. :)
