We were on a major America’s Got Talent kick this year. We drove up to LA to see a grand total of FIVE recordings. It was so easy to snag tickets and we got so wrapped up in the season that it got kind of addicting! We kicked off the…

Red Sox and Newport

February 25, 2021 in Beach, Newport, Red Sox - No Comments

We headed to Newport Beach on a World Series game day. The Red Sox were up 3-1 and we were hoping that some pre-game beach vibes would secure their victory. Blake stayed home to work on homework but my other three were happy to get some fresh air and represent…

My parents came to town for my mom’s 60th birthday celebration and even though we offered to take her to a nice dinner or have a party, all she wanted to do was go to the beach. When Nash was fighting a cough on the big day, we just took…

Four Beaches, One Weekend

Finn is Four

Just like that, my baby turned four. He only had one wish for his birthday; a robot cake. I did my best to make his robot cake dreams come true, even though it meant scrambling at the last minute to find the right cake pan and cake supplies. Finn’s birthday…

August Little Things

We kicked off August with Junior Lifeguards. This time, the little brothers joined the daycamp lineup. The camp is a vigorous mix of ocean safety and swimming skills. The rotations switch each day and they find out immediately when they arrive each morning if the dreaded “swim-run-swim” is on the…
