Newport Beach


And Finally Newport Beach Vacation! It was so fun to get away just as a family. We have had a busy few months full of lots of fun visitors and adding two new members to the family. We got to hang out together and just enjoy each other.


Abbie and Iz LOVED the beach. It was in the 60s so we went with light jackets just to hang out, but we couldn't stop Abbie, she ended up in the water and loving it. She was mesmerized by the waves and somehow got the impression that she could control them, it was hilarious. Iz was in her own world for hours scooping dirt and dumping it in another place, she learned about the waves pretty quickly: She was bent over to scoop some mud when a large wave washed over her, it knocked her down into the water....poor thing will never go near the ocean again... at least for now! The twins were of course there with us in their car seats sound asleep, perfect babies!!

Gasp! That picture of Abbie at the edge of the ocean is incredible! I'm so happy they got to experience all of that -- and that I could be there for part of it. Grandma Linda
