Beach Firsts

A couple weekends ago, we decided to randomly up and go to Oceanside, CA. My in-laws have a place there that they usually rent out, but as luck would have it, they had a couple weekends free and invited us along to join them! We were super excited because we had never taken Miss Maze to the beach before (last time we were able to visit, she was only a couple weeks old!) Clara had a blast and the experience was everything I hoped it would be. She touched. She played. She ate. She chased seagulls and screamed at people. Even though she was due for her nap, she made the most of her beach trip and this mama couldn't be happier!!

This is going to be a photo heavy post. Enjoy!

And for Jess, who is interested in what MY world looks like, here's my desert:


More dirt.
More dirt

Train and dirt.

Dirt with a mountain.

Dirt with shrubs.

Fast dirt.

Another mountain and more dirt.

So there you go Jess. My desert. Taken from a moving vehicle because it is STILL way too hot to go outside!
