What do you do when:
a. Dad and Eli have a 3 day weekend
b. Fin gets a new Razor scooter
c. Uncle Matt and Aunt Melissa go to Hawaii and their house is available to “camp” in?
Play tourist in the Monterey Bay area!
We picnicked at Dennis the Menace Park.
Rolled at the skate park. (Or contemplated what life would be like once you can keep up with Eli.)
Paddled and stalked small creatures on our first family paddle boat ride.
And after an overnight in Carmel Valley, we headed to the beach. The boys could have cared less that it was overcast and sprinkling. They wouldn’t have cared to miss the playground, the paddle boat ride, the lollipops or the patriotic doughnuts.
They just wanted the beach.
More rounds of tag than I can count.
They begged us to bury them.
(I’m still finding sand.)
Dad found a kelp rope so Eli would feel safe venturing out into the waves.
Here’s to playing tourist more often!
