Vacation Journal - Balboa: July 6 thru 9

the whole week was back and forth between the big beach and diamond street. of course, the older kids had their annual lemonade stand...


almost every afternoon we would play at the big beach until the sun went down. my kids were usually hard to drag in from the ocean and near impossible to get out of the sand...


Happy Birthday, Uncle Brian! who celebrated his birthday on July 7th at the beach house...


wednesday night g.g. had put together a little stitching party for all the little girls with their own individual pouches of embroidery thread, needles, mini embroidery hoops and tea towels to put their initials on. that g.g., always up to something creative...


sam, george and finn all had so much fun together. running around, wrestling, laughing... laying face down in the sand. one night they got into a full-on wrestle match with grandad. even lucy and luke ended up joining in. what a good sport grandad is to have all those kids all over him...


and more beach. and more sand. and more ocean. ah, yes, it was a wonderful week...
