After Kendall’s girl party, we hurried up and packed for our trip to the beach. It was our first time at the Kite Festival and the kids were pumped!
We pulled in to the camp site and what did we do first? Not the beach but the pool!!! They had a little pool there right next to where we were setup. That water was COLD but do kids care? I swear they don’t have nerves!
After swimming, we headed to the beach. It was less than 1/4 mile, just right over the hill from our site. And nobody on the beach. Couldn’t have been more peaceful.
Winston patrolling the beach. That dog LOOOOVES the beach!
The next day it was kite flying time!!!
And chill time.
Our camp site had a mess hall where they cooked breakfast Saturday morning. Pancakes, bacon, eggs, coffee. What a nice treat! That’s Sam on the right…Ryan’s childhood friend. The kids just love Sam 🙂

Walking the boardwalk in downtown Long Beach. You can see all the kites in the distance. Look at our amazing weather!
After our trip, we had 2 days to get ready for school. So we did haircuts at Walmart (never again!). Kendall LOVED getting her hair washed!
And doing her most favorite thing in the whole wide world. Picking berries!
And that wraps up the summer of 2017. I have to say I struggled the last few weeks. It’s very very hard to keep these kids busy and happy! Even with so many trips and fun outings, I heard a lot of ‘I’m bored!’ or ‘I have nobody to play with!’
Needless to say, I did not shed a tear when it was time to send them off to school. They love school and their friends and all the fun things they get to do. I’m SUPER thankful we have such great schools out here!
Now, to catch up to October….
