Our vacation: the beach

We were able to go to the beach for 4 days and it was so great.  I missed Brody like crazy (we left him with my mom) but it was so fun to spend time with my wonderful husband, just us!  We stayed in a beach house right on the beach so that meant I was on the beach the majority of the day.  Other than that, we went to the shops in Huntington, the Balboa Fun Zone, and and went back to Dukes like last year where I enjoyed those amazing crab legs again.  After driving from Oklahoma to California, it was just the relaxing time I needed..(I couldn't exactly get these pics in perfect order, yes it sorta bugs me ;)

We started making a professional sand castle so I ran back to the house to grab my camera and right when I  went to take the picture... haha

We went to the wedge where they have huge crazy waves... it was the only place we found any sand crabs- i felt like a kid again, I used to love finding those as a kid. :p

I loved the wax mustaches/lips when I was a kid!  Tastes like grape! (;

We left the beach house on the last day and met up with my mom and sisters family who brought Brody back to us!  He was pretty mad at me when he saw me but he soon forgave me for ditching him (:  I love the ring my brother Mike got me for my birthday!

It was so fun- I was sad to leave California and leave my great family behind.  It was so great to be with all of them again!  I'm so blessed to have them all- despite our distance we've always been close, I'm grateful for that.

This looks so fun. That's the same beach my family has always gone to and I absolutely love it!

Ditto to what everyone else said, you're an adorable pregnant girl. When I was pregnant with Ruby I swear I dressed like a 40 year old women because I couldn't find any maternity clothes that were decently priced! haha
