Capitola Beach Vacation {Part I}

This is our 3 year spending a week at a beach house in Capitola.  This is one trip we look forward to each year.  It allows us to spend a lot of time as a family and make some awesome memories in the process.  This year I wasn't sure if Jason would be able to attend with his work schedule, but everything lined up just right and he was 2 days behind us.  I am so happy that Jason was able to come, I was sad thinking of all the fun he would be missing out on while here.

The few days leading up to leaving for the beach, I started to get really nervous.  At the end of the week I would be boarding a plane for the second time with my girls and I would be by myself. (insert mom panic)  I knew the big girls would be ok on the flight, but I was more worried about how the baby would do.  She doesn't like to sit still, the kid is always on the move.  But much to my surprise all 3 of the girls did awesome.  We left San Antonio and made a stop in San Diego (no plane change) and then from San Diego to Oakland.  We met grandma and grandpa at the airport and the sheer joy on the girls faces when they saw grandma at the bottom of the stairs by baggage claim was priceless.

The first few days of our vacation were spent at the beach.  The weather in the morning started off a little cooler and then by the afternoon it was warmer.  We spent those days playing in the sand, building sand castles and splashing in the water.  This was Kendall's first time playing in the sand and she had a blast.  She got extremely mad when it was time to clean up and head back to the house.  It's so much fun to see how much they love the sand.  The beach is my favorite place to be and I'm so glad that my girls love it just as much.
