Zuma Beach

No trip to Southern California would be complete without a trip to the beach, and Brian insisted we go to Zuma Beach in Malibu.
As a kid living in Woodland Hills, Brian remembers his mom dropping him and his friends or siblings off at Zuma Beach for the day and picking them up again at dinner time.
The water was chilly, but not too cold for my land-locked kids. They had a great time.
The photo, below, is my favorite of the whole trip.
I DO love the ocean.

Passing Time

We did a lot of waiting and passing of time as we traveled to Southern California for our family vacation and especially while we were in Disneyland.
Abby, ever the creative genius, gave herself a manicure of silver gum wrappers. She separated the shiny outer layer from the paper, rubbed it on her nails, and ta-da . . .
She went blue on the return trip.
Kellie's speciality this summer was taking advantage of every possible moment to study for the MCAT. . .
whether it was while in line to ride Grizzly Rapids or while lounging at the beach.
Travis? Well, if he wasn't eating, he was simply being Travis.
Me? I did a bit of crocheting,
took pictures of Abby's in-car artwork,
and enjoyed my view from the front seat.
