Swifty swines, elephant rides, surf, sun and copious amounts of sand in the bathtub.

Gas up the family truckster, it's time to get the hell outta dodge!

Saturday we loaded up our car as if we were moving and headed towards the Del Mar fair. I have spoken highly of the fair to Phil for about 6 years, I couldn't wait to finally show it off and better yet, take the princesses.

About 2 seconds after we handed the guy $$$ for the ride I felt extremely guilty. Hope Jess liked the Elephant Ride, it will most likely be her last.

After a full day at the Fair with no naps it was off to the beach for two nights.


This was Emma's 1st trip to the beach and loved all of it

Even Mama got to relax!

Jessica provided the entertainment of the day. For a good 5 minutes she repeatedly took turns washing her feet then sticking them right back in the sand. We had tears rolling as we were laughing our butts off.

Jessica is an exact replica of her parents. From the second she was up (6:30am) it was "beach! I want beach!" The water was freezing cold and no match for the eager 2 year old

Little Miss "I love to fling sand"

Jessica's new "fancy" way to get her hair wet

I would be more than happy to share video of our first ever family vacation, but the battery is dead and we lost the charger. ACK! Therefore I went crazy with the still photos and literally took over 200 of them. The best part of our 'mini vacation' is that Phil found out that we can have lots of fun even if he only does take one day off. After 3 days, we're beat. Running after kids that want to plunge in the ocean, chase birds, and eat pounds of sand takes lots of work!
