Last week was a blur of travel, fun and grandkids. I left off my last post with getting ready to head to Avila beach with my youngest son, his six kids and 3 more of the grandkids. My mission for the summer has been to have as much fun with my grandkids as I can and then fall face first into bed and get up and do it all over again.
It was windy and cold, but sunny. I love the beach no matter what (have I told you how much I love the beach?) The kids don't care either, so we did all the things you do when you go to the beach.
There was swimming (the big kids) wading (the little kids) and watching (the really big kids)
Getting buried in the sand
Building sand castles (or just digging in the sand)
Soaking up some sun
That's me off to the left wiggling my toes in the sand...really.
It finally got too windy and cold for everyone (except me), and we left the beach and stopped by Avila barn for ice cream (yes, all those freezing kids and adults wanted ice cream). We bought fresh vegetables and fruit for dinner, visited all the animals and headed back to Santa Maria to our campsite.
Thanks to Mr. SS for the beach pictures. I just wanted to sit and enjoy.
We did the camping thing that night including a story telling time around the campfire and of course, roasting marshmallows.
The next morning we were off to stop at the outlet mall for back to school clothes and shoes.
We ate dinner in the parking lot and headed home'
Another night of falling face first into bed.
It was ONLY Tuesday.
Wednesday and Friday I watched the six grandkids for 12 hrs. as nurse mommy had to work a couple of days ( she usually works nights).
Have you figured out why I have been missing in blogland for a week. But as I have said many times before. I love every minute of time I have with my grandkids.
It is amazing how good my bed feels at the end of the day.
This week, I am in Long Beach with my husband and son who are working here. Yesterday, I relaxed, read, sewed and cooked. Today I spent the day with my friend who has Aunt Fanny's Emporium that I showed you here.
Tomorrow I'm sewing all day!!
Will show off what I worked on and a recipe on Thursday or Friday. We are here for the whole week in our RV.
