We were so busy in May that we were more than ready for a day off. Thank goodness for Memorial Day! We needed a relaxing day at the beach.
We chose Morro Strand beach, which is between Morro Bay and Cayucos, because it has good waves for boogie boarding. Plus it doesn't get too busy.
We met up with my sister's family as well as some friends from church.
It was windy, but we didn't have much luck getting the trick kite up.
Cute picture of Kate!
The kids made sand castles.
And then they had a huge sand war! They used the boogie boards as shields and threw buckets of sand, water and seaweed. They went a little crazy!
Remember when the kids were little and cried when they got a little sand in their eyes? Apparently it doesn't bother them anymore!
After the war died down, they turned my friend's daughter Jeneva into a mermaid.
Warming up in the sand.
Then we all started craving hamburgers and were too hungry to go all the way home. So we stopped at Mainstreet Grill in Cambria for burgers and fries. We ran into more friends there! The food was delicious! When we came home we had FHE around a campfire and roasted marshmallows. It was a great day.
