This year for my birthday on June 29th, I wanted to get away and spend time with Ron and the girls at the beach. Unfortunately Kayley had to work and Misty ended up in the Hospital a couple days before the trip so they couldn't join us.
We started the day with a trip to the hospital to see Misty who was doing much better. Then we headed to the city to pick up Holly. We went to a beach that we hadn't been to before that was only 20 minutes from Holly's. Moss Beach is a nature reserve with tide pools and harbor seals. The weather was perfect at around 84 degrees. I really enjoy the smell of the ocean, the sound of the waves, the feel of sand on my feet, the freshness of the air and how peaceful it is.
- First time seeing the Ocean
- First time at a beach
- First time seeing tide pools
- First time seeing Harbor seals
She made us all laugh when the first words out of her mouth when she saw the Ocean were "It's huge!" I think she was thinking more that it would look more like a lake LOL.
I just love what the beach does to naturally wavy hair (NOT) after I have taken the time to straighten it for the day. Although I don't care for pictures of myself right now I am so happy that I have one of Ron and I together and I am sure the girls will treasure it in the future.
Once we left the beach we headed over to Fenton's Creamery in Piedmont, CA. Ron and I started going there in the 1980's when we first started dating. I remember waiting in long lines at midnight and loving every minuted of it. I remember how big the ice creams use to be and while they are still big they are not as big as they once were. Ron and I could never finish the banana split.
Love this instagram photo of Ron and I even though it's pretty blurry! I love his smile :)
After Fenton's we took Holly to the BART station so she could get home and we headed home ourselves. I enjoyed the day so so much and hope we can have more family days like this.
Until Next time!
