This past weekend is just what we needed.
We headed down to the beach on Saturday afternoon
and picked up grandma and grandpa on the way.
It was a gorgeous day at the beach and a bit cooler than it was at home.
We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Wilma's on Balboa Island
took long walks on the island
it was so fun having grandpa and grandma join us
Kate was thrilled to be back in the sand.
People on the island are so nice.
We needed to wash Kate up and a sweet couple
had us come in to clean her up in their bathroom
it was so gorgeous..
Sunday was Ava's first birthday party.
It was beautiful but a little on the hot side
Kate at Irvine Park
Is she not the most precious thing you've ever seen?!
