Day at the beach

Last week was spring break here, except we didn't do much because my oldest son was really sick. On Friday, we went to see How to Train Your Dragon, which was EXCELLENT! Highly, highly recommend it! One of my sons said, "I liked that better than Avatar!"

On Saturday, the weather was nice, so we headed to the beach. It was beautiful!! Here are a few pics:

The tiny purple shell is REALLY tiny. I should have put my finger in the picture to give you an idea of just how tiny. Like, smaller than my pinky finger nail. It's quite a miracle I found it. I looked down, and there it was. It's such a pretty purple color - I've never found anything quite like it.

Today, the rain is back and the kids are heading back to school, counting the days until summer time! This morning, I head out in the pouring rain and wind for the TV interview. I'm thankful for the opportunity, but I cannot tell you how glad I'll be when it's over. I think I'll take myself out to lunch to celebrate!!

Happy Monday!


  1. Beautiful pics!! love the shell.. it is tiny but very cute!

  2. Thanks Cynthia - it is VERY tiny, but I think that adds to the cuteness. :)

  3. I can't wait to the get to the beach this summer. I love finding tiny shells like that. Pretty amazing. Hope your TV interview went well!

  4. Ooo, that looks so peaceful. Southern California beaches are always so packed with people in skimpy bathing suits. They ruin the pictures!

    And wow, how DID you find a shell so small? You must have eyes like a hawk. :)

  5. What kind of dog is that? He looks like a cutie!

  6. Hi Cari - She's a lhasa poo - her name is Stormy. :)

  7. I have two poodles myself that coat looked familiar.
