California Vacation

We have just returned from our vacation in San Diego. From breezy, cool weather. Sandy beaches. Rolling, green hills. Kids having fun. Enjoying family. Running. Playing. Laughing. And best of all, not sweltering to death. Just enjoying life. I love vacations. And even though it is a lot of work with kids (and I sorta need a vacation from my vacation), it’s so worth it to watch them have so much fun. Now that we are home in Arizona they keep asking when we can go back to our California home. It is my dream to move there some day. I have so many fond memories of our vacations there as a kid, I hope that my three will have the same. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from our week.

I love all the colors on the beach from the sun that was quickly setting. The colors kept changing as the sun went down.

The Polling gang. Serious attitude here.

I love the contrast of Kat’s red hair on the beach.

Playing with cousins is so much fun!

Look…flowers! And no dust in sight.:)

Hunting for sand crabs and sea shells. At one point as we were searching for seashells, Kat came up to me and said “Is this a sea shell?”. It was a Dorito. The beach was a little crowded and polluted that day ;).

Goodbye California! We’ll see you again soon :).
