Family Vacation - Day 7 & 8 final beach day

June 7th, 2013 
This morning we got up, got ready and had breakfast before heading out to go see tide pools.  I was excited about this little adventure the whole trip.  But when we got there Jason said "oh look the tide is high"  which meant NO tide pools.  I was sad we weren't going to be able to see them but we stayed to watched the huge waves before leaving.

We headed back to the car and went to get some lunch at Togo's.  We got back to our beach house right at lunch time.  The girls ate lunch and actually went down for their nap at the normal time.  While the girls napped Jason and I headed up to the roof to do a little sun bathing {it was the warmest day the whole trip}.  But our roof top alone time didn't last more than 45 minutes before Jason's mom came up to tell us Keira was up and she had a yucky diaper!  We gathered our stuff and headed downstairs to change her.  Keira didn't end up going back to sleep so she hung out on the couch while everyone else slept.  She looked so sweet sitting on the couch so I took my camera out, which she wasn't thrilled about until I went to put it away and then she wanted me to take her picture, silly kid.

After all the girls and grandma woke up from nap we decided to head down to the beach for one last beach fun before we left.  Once we made it down to the beach the girls played a little while the baby and I huddled up under a blanket, it was freezing at the beach.  The waves were some of the biggest waves we've ever seen in Capitola, big waves brought a lot of surfers that day.

Once it got to cold to be at the beach we loaded up and headed back up the big hill to our beach house.  We had a few melt downs from Keira on the way, which were from her lack of nap that day. {the kid definitely still needs her nap}.  Once home we relaxed and watched a movie and ordered some pizza for dinner.  The girls were in bed by 8:15pm.

While on this vacation with the girls sleeping in the same room, I learned that Kaylee grinds her teeth {I do it too} which is totally annoying! and Keira talks in her sleep {talks loudly}.

We woke up and got dressed in comfy clothes for our car ride home.  We ate some breakfast and then stated loading the car up.  We said our good byes and headed home!  We made it home at the right time, the girls ate lunch and then went down for a nap.

We are glad to be home and will be heading back to the beach again for the weekend June 21st - 23rd
