Auntie Marc invited us down to play at the boardwalk in Santa Cruz the weekend of the 17th. Lorien was in Disneyland with the orchestra & her musical theater class. We miss having her with us, but we all had fun together too.
The day was GORGEOUS. Only in CA can you have bright blue skies & beautiful sandy beaches in the middle of February.
Auntie bought tickets for the kiddos to ride any ride they wanted to. They were in heaven.
Being a Saturday, the boardwalk was PACKED. It was wall to wall people. But for some reason crowds don't bother me. I love it. Such a beautiful day.
The kids' favorite ride were the bumper cars. They were all pretty good at it too. . . which SCARES me.
And as always, we all got dippin dots to enjoy while we rode rides. Auntie spoils us.
Bladen & Cadence are my brave riders. They'll ride any ride they can get on. Craiger is more cautious, but this time he threw caution to the wind & rode the ride that shot them straight up into the air & then dropped them. The smile on his face as he was dropping is priceless. He had a BLAST. I think he'll be trying bigger rides from now on.
It was a wonderful day. Thank you Auntie for treating us to such a memorable experience. We're sure going to miss you when we leave.
