Beach Trip

IMG_5137

2 weeks ago, we went to our first Saturday night service at Rancho Community – which was really cool because it gave us Sunday off to do whatever. Jen actually had to to go to Catalina with her mom – long story (I know could you imagine having to go to Catalina? Our dentist lives there…). I had the kiddos all to myself so we decided to head down to the beach, more specifically, Encinitas, San Elijo, & Cardif by the Sea – our favorite area in SoCal.

So we headed down and went to Best-a-wan Pizza for some lunch, which was amazing as usual. Then we went over to San Elijo and walked down to the beach for a little while. It was FREEZING, but that was ok – we just loved walking on the beach, the sand in our toes, looking at shells, climbing on rocks and just being together.

Every once in a while, I just have to go to the ocean – going on our Road Trip reminded me of one thing: I LOVE living in California. Yeah it’s got it’s issues, but there’s nowhere like it in the world! Something about the sea just relaxes me and reminds me of God – his awesomeness, my smallness, and just that life is bigger than our little issues.

Here’s some of the pics from the day:
