We left foggy Concord and found The Sunny Beach!

On Monday we decided to go somewhere for the holiday and not just stay home.  The girls wanted to go to the beach.  So we did.  Only a few people there, warmth from the sky, what could be better?
Hello Santa Cruz

Sand and Shadow Art

Beautiful peaceful day - the tide was way out

The Girls took a spin on the Big Dipper coaster

Everyone else wore wet suits - these girls stayed out an hour in their swimsuits

Good bye to a really terrific day

Is this Year Colder than Previous Years?!!!

Waking up to fog and ice encrusted cars, grass, sidewalk and fence is unreal.  I live in California, I put away all the shoveling, scrapping, and bundling up when we moved here.  What is going on?!

I can't really complain because by 10 am all trace of the ice had disappeared, the fog lifted and even if it wasn't a warm day it was very nice.  We have turned our furnace more on this year than I can remember in the past.  Am I just getting old?  Do I feel for Rebekah as she hates the cold?  Or is it really colder than it was?
