Whirlwind California Adventure

We decided somewhat last minute to make a quick trip to CA (part business/part fun). We covered a lot of miles in 6 days and the kids proved (again) to be great travelers. We spent an afternoon with our dear friend Nancy in San Francisco and the kids got their first glimpse of the Pacific Ocean. Samuel and Anna couldn't resist gathering up the plentiful sand dollars that were scattered about the beach . . . they decided they must be rich! It was cold and windy so we stayed in our "go out to lunch clothes" and didn't plan on getting IN the water . . . you can probably guess how well those plans went (especially if you have children!) Fortunately, we had some extra clothes in the van! Watching the kids squeal with delight as the waves taunted them, tickled them, chased them and sometimes wrestled them to the ground was priceless!
