We're having a great time in California -- enjoying the nice (not too hot!) weather and playing with Gwenie and Darci. Today we went to Newport Beach (our old hang out!) to play in the sand and the water. Mason loved to dig in the sand with the beach toys .. but he also loved to chase the seagulls -- he ran up and down the beach forever trying to catch them (why?!).
He was a little wary of the water and getting near it without me close by.
But then he realized that the tide was pretty fun to play in and even dared to sit down while it rushed over his legs:
He loved watching the surfers and the family of dolphins that was swimming just offshore.
He was not too fond of being buried in the sand:
But it was all worth it when we stopped for In-n-Out on the way home. (Cheeseburger-no-tomato-with-onions-fries-large-Dr.-Pepper for me and a grilled cheese for him). So worth it. Nothing tastes better straight from the salty and sandy beach than a Double Double. Nothing.
