We made the rounds to all the beaches in Orange County.
Ian's favorite beach of all time is in Laguna Beach. He spent all his childhood beach days on Victoria Beach, in Laguna. He loved taking and sharing that experience with the boys and Talia!
The boys loved making the moat around the castle edge
The tide was strong in Victoria so the boys had to be careful
boogie boarding was another first for the boys. Gampa and Daddy showed them how to do it!
Talia had a blast in Manhattan Beach too! We all went to spend the day at the beach and meet up with Aunt Katie and Chris near their apartment off the main drag.
I burried Elijah and Joaquin in the sand…
This was a picture that Nick's father took with Ian when Ian was a baby, so Nick mimiced the same pose to capture a special moment and memory.
Talia and Gampa.
Talia was so happy to meet up with Aunt Katie after the beach and have a nice dinner.
Like father, like son.
We all had dinner with Chris and Katie at a fun dinner spot in Manhattan Beach.
Gamma was the first one to introduce Talia to the ocean.
The boys went to check out the tide pools with Daddy when Talia had some lunch.
First few steps in the water at my hometown beach in Huntington.
Talia loved it even though it was cold!
