CA Dreamin'

Following our trip to PA, we came home and Bryce whisked everyone off to CA, except Mommy who had to put a few days of work in before leaving for the coast.

Exhausted after the PA trip

They went to San Clemente to visit relatives while Daddy went to see Ben Harper at the Hollywood Bowl.
Good Times.

Our new favorite toy--a light up whirlybird

Then we all met up at our favorite Southern CA Beach---OB!  We stay at a great little bungalow that is a half block from the beach, (If interested, let me know, I'll hook you up with the great landlord, Randy!) He even made room for our friends to join us!

The land of exotic plants

OB Pier
Down the pier

and enticing beach fronts

Boogie board champ!!

Carson had other ideas of fun on the shore

Reflective, time to slow down
Lighthouse Ice Cream----best dessert in town!!

fascinating fire works display off the pier!

An OB souvenir

The last sunset
Ocean Beach is the place to be over the 4th of July.  They have a great display of fire works followed by a town-wide marshmallow battle!!
This has been our retreat for a while and we have decided to keep it on our roster in the future.
We came home from this trip relaxed and refreshed.
