my family and i used to go to seaside almost every summer, so i was so thrilled to be able to show matilda our old stomping grounds, not to mention the ocean. a lot has changed in the five years since i've been. it's a bona fide cluster of towns now with even fancier beach houses, airsteam food trailers and more surf shops than you could imagine.
we spent early mornings at the beach before naptime. matilda couldn't get over how much she love/hated the ocean. she would charge the waves and then get mad when they knocked her over. once she discovered the joy of the sand pail and shovel, her and her pal logan were happy as -wait for it- clams. lilly was happy just playing with her feet and snoozing on her towel. love these sweet babies.
we ate so much delicious food, but my favorite was the bbq from barefoot bbq. oh heavens.
it was so wonderful to recharge with such great friends. we were so grateful for the chance to get away together. i was once again reminded of how i need to be near the ocean and it brings me so much peace. i was so happy to share that with matilda. i couldn't help but feel the summer fading away as we drove back home.
