New Year's Eve at the Beach!

Jade really wanted to make a trip to a beach while they were here, so Sat. we packed up and headed to San Clemente Beach. We had not visited that beach yet and it didn't disappoint! We ended up a little far out and had to walk a little bit to get to the public beach....but, it was really nice with a little playground for Bodie and it wasn't crowded at all. It was a little overcast, but still very nice and Jade and Saul kept saying only in CA can you wear a swimsuit in Dec.! (Jade was the only one on the beach in a swimsuit though....ha ha)

Saige kept her shorts on! It wasn't THAT warm!!
Getting a little sun!

Heading out!

It was pretty rocky at this beach, but still very nice.....the waves were pretty awesome and strong.

Saul reflecting on the past year.....ha ha!

Bodie LOVED the beach....which was very different from his last visit when it took us the whole time just to get him to put his feet on the sand! There was a little slide and swings also and he couldn't get enough of that either!

Saige and I.

We loved seeing him have so much fun.....I can't wait to go back this summer.

Not a great pic of Jade and I, but the only one I! But I do love the shot of Saige behind us!! She got away from the wave...we did not!!

The honey bunny and I.....this whole week was so pleasant....I just loved it.

Playing around!

We make a cute ha ha!

How big can I smile?

Saul was Bodie's buddy at the beach.....he had sooooo much fun with him....he has a COOL bro-in-law!


The water was FUUUUREEEZZZING! But the boys didn't seem to mind!

Yeah baby!

Bodie always puts his hand on his face when he is's so stinking cute!

I apparently thought I needed another goofy shot with my mouth wide open!

We were attacked my birds a couple of times.....good times....nobody got the poo thank goodness!

The clouds started rolling in right about the time we left.

Bodie had no problem getting his feet dirty this time!

Oh how I love those little feet!

As we were having a fun time sticking our feet in the rolling waves....a HUGE wave decided to roll on in and totally wiped out Bodie...Joel plucked him out like a fish and we were all stunned and dying because it was a little funny.....but, wow that water was cold and Bodie didn't cry one bit....crazy! The bad news was that we didn't plan very well and didn't have a change of clothes for Bodie....but we did have his swimsuit and his jacket thank goodness! One of Joel's flip flops (that I had worn down to the beach side also got hit by the wave and one was taken out to sea....Saul saved the day (and me) by spotting it and running and snatching it out of the water!

After the beach.....we hit up our favorite dining location....chick-fil-a! Bodie wasn't interested in his food at all after seeing this little room!

Little poser

Jade and Saul and Saige all played in here.....ha ha! Bodie loved his playmates!

WOW! I love this kid! I love ALL my kids! We had such a good day and that ice-dream cone was the perfect end to it all!!!

Oh, I wanted to be there. You make it sound like it was so much fun. Love the pics and I know you enjoyed the family. So happy Jade and Saul got to come for a good visit. Would love to all go to the Gulf for a visit with it' s beautiful white sand. Y'all are all adorable but Bodie is the adorablist. .
