We love going to the beach as a family! This year didn’t disappoint. We drove away from here on Friday July 5th, with a stop over in Las Vegas to see the Donny and Marie Show that evening. During the show we felt the 2nd big California earthquake shaking the concert hall. Saturday we arrived in Newport and settled in. Here are a few family photos we took after church on Sunday. Aaron didn’t join us until Tuesday. He was in London at Wimbledon. We spent a lot of time the rest of the week at the beach, with our boogie boards and beach reading. Josie met sand for the first time and they became friends.There are only a few important things to accomplish at the beach. The first of course is family time. Right after that is food. Early in the week we made a schedule of which places to eat which day.
Chronic Tacos are a favorite.
The second important thing is reading. We pack a library box every year so we have plenty of choices for our beach reading.I got through 4 books this year: Muddy, All the Light We Cannot See, We Were the Lucky Ones and Find the Good. All great reads!
We love the family time–just being together. The grandkids, are of course our greatest entertainment, and being with them trumps every other activity.
Family Photo:Our week in Newport passed so quickly. The following week after church we were back on the road again, heading home. We’re grateful for time with our kids. We love them so much.
