We built bonfires on the Carmel Beach and roasted marshmallows and looked at the stars.
J. is a great fire builder and taught O. all the tricks of building a good and proper fire.
Up and down the beach there were bonfires - makes for a fun night.
We also found fun playgrounds to play on.
And then there were the great meals out.
J. inspired O. to try trout!
Of course if you're going to boogie board - you need wetsuits - because even though it's summer - it's still Northern California Pacific Ocean.
We had a great bike ride along Monterey Bay.
We build some model balsa wood planes to fly.
We went horseback riding in the dunes of the Monterey Peninsula
There were also fun slumber parties
And great picnic style meals
Playing in the park with friends who have grown up a lot!
And also going to the great Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk!!!
The carousel is especially fun when you grab the brass ring and get it in the clown's mouth.
The log ride - fun on a hot day!
The ghost ride
Friends make waiting in line fun.
But the best part is hanging out with friends!!!
