We have taken our annual trip to Pajaro Dunes for 5 years now. It really does feel like a second home to the children. Four days of playing on the beach, waking up each morning and running to find Grandma and Grandpa, sand, sun, and lots of yummy food.
We usually take one day trip while we stay at the beach, this year we took the kids to the Dennis the Menace park in Monterey.
This is what group photos look like. There is just no possible way to get them to all look at the camera and smile at the same time. What this photo lacks in presentation it makes up for in authenticity!
Of course the main attraction is always the beach.
We always laugh at the kids when “leaving day” finally arrives. They look so stunned. They assume that this is their new home, and that life will now and forever consist of playing on the beach, waking up every morning to cousins running through the house, and going on field trips. We smile and laugh at them, but in our hearts we feel the same way.
