To celebrate the lovely weather and the last day of Ryan’s winter break, we packed the kids up and drove to the coast. It was Vika’s first trip to the ocean and she LOVED it!

Noelle and Levi had a pretty great time too.

After lunch on the pier, we headed down to the beach.

Vika got to take her shoes off and go for a walk in the sand. Taking her shoes off was a real treat- she now wears inserts in her shoes to help her balance while walking and she hates them.

Some of us loved playing in the sand.

Others of us, not so much.

Daddy helped build a sand castle. . .

. . . and a few mouthfuls of sand were consumed.

All in all, it was a beautiful day.

We are so blessed!
