Yup, yup, those two are back at the beach waiting for the big monkeys to finish kayaking around the harbor last weekend

We NEED a consolation prize for not being able to ride with the bog boys

Family Fun Adventure: Rent or borrow kayaks and paddle around the harbor, a lake or river near you. The boys had great fun paddling around in the sunshine, checking out all the boats & seal spotting. This is something I want to take up as a hobby once I have more free time. I’m dying to explore around the Channel Islands one day and camp there

While big boys did their thing, Dad, Mom and company walked down the boardwalk. We wandered down to the observation deck hoping to get a nice view of the harbor, but due to the banana boat shut downs at the parks, it was closed and locked up. Boo! The kids had to settle for a picture on some little sea creatures instead

In other pictures, Brecks getting to be quite the big boy! More adventure = more trouble. And that boy knows where to find it!

He snagged a bowl of pizza topping: Raw Zucchini. Yum, I guess?   Biggest brother Alvin made loads of homemade pizza for dinner that night. Great Job Alvin!

Hubbs took the kids on Go-Karts and Bumper Boats in lieu of a friend that wanted to take them, but was sick.

A tiny bit of crafting going on. I finished the older boys Christmas pajama pants https://juggling5monkeys.wordpress.com/2013/09/16/diy-tutorial-childs-pajama-pants/

and worked on a Reversible Book Envelope for Azure’s school library books. https://juggling5monkeys.wordpress.com/2013/10/09/diy-tutorial-reversible-book-envelope/
