On Saturday we arrived at our annual vacation spot:  Newport Beach CA.

It was raining, but that didn’t stop my kids from charging headlong into the ocean.

Whether they preferred the water or the sand, they were so excited!

I love the way the beach offers something for all of them:
waves to conquer, shells to collect, or just a massive sandbox in need of a king.

I think you could say we’ve missed the beach.

Except for our youngest, who doesn’t remember last summer.
She had some concerns about the enormity of the situation.

But with a little effort, we loosened her up a bit.

We even coaxed a smile out of her.

By the end of the week, she’ll be charging right in without concern for her safety.
It’s going to be a great week!
