Father's Day Shenanigans

We celebrated Father's Day a day early and up in the mountains.
Jason's dad has a cabin up in the mountains and we went to spend the day up there with him.
The girls always have such a great time when we go up there, there's so much to explore.

The day didn't really start out how we had planned.  We left later than daddy wanted and got held up in line at McDonalds getting breakfast.  We were 6 miles from his dad's cabin and our heater core line burst and drained all our coolant out within seconds which then lead to our Tahoe over heating.  We had to pull over and access the damage.  Mind you we had no cell service to call his dad and we didn't have enough onstar minutes to make a call either.  We had to flag some people down and ask them if they had water that we could add so that we were able to make it.  One couple was nice enough to pull over and gave us water which we were able to make it a mile down the road before we started over heating again.  Then another nice couple pulled over and was able to give us enough water to make it to Jason's dads cabin.  But once we made it there it was all fun after that.

Lots of running around, playing hide n seek behind all the trees and walking along the river. The water was really cold but that didn't stop the dogs or girls from going in or touching it.  The weather was beautiful.  All in all we had a great day and it was so nice to not have service, we were able to spend real quality time with each other and make some great memories too.

Capitola Beach {part II}

June 5th, 2015
It was another cold and cloudy day but we still went to the beach anyways.  The girls didn't care as long as they got to go to the beach they were happy.  The waves were big and the sand was wet so it was good for building half sand castles. 

This trip was different to than our past trips to the beach.  Usually Jason's mom has a list of fun events to do while at the beach but this time was different.  It may have been due to the fact that Jason had to work everyday while there so we spent lots of time walking around looking at shops and playing on the beach.

It was relaxing while on the beach or walking around but once we got back to the beach house all hell would break loose.  It was a little my fault since I didn't really bring things for the girls to do but Jason's mom usually brings a bunch of stuff...I guess we both dropped the ball.

Capitola Beach {part one}

June 2nd, 2015
We arrive at the beach house on June 1st around 6:45pm, we got settled and just hung out with family before heading to bed. On Tuesday morning the girls were more than ready to head to the beach and have some fun.  We headed down to the beach around 10:40am, to let the kids run around and enjoy the beautiful weather.  The plan was to go back down to the beach again after nap time.  {I didn't bring my camera the first trip down}  After nap time the girls, grandma and I headed back down to the beach for some real fun.  The girls played with the sand toys, Kaylee tried her boogie board and didn't really like it at all {first time}.  We then headed back to the beach house and went out to dinner.  First day was a lot of fun.  We missed daddy during the day, he just got his new job so he has to work during the day and he gets back to the beach house around 5, we are looking forward to having him here for the weekend.
