Jared Strikes a Pose, South Carlsbad State Beach

Only in San Diego can a January birthday be celebrated with a trip to the beach!  On this sunny Carlsbad day Jared and Destiny joined me for an outing to South Carlsbad State Beach.  The kids braved the frigid water in their swim suits.  I preferred to wade in rolled up jeans.  Here are a few highlights of our beach adventure:

Watching the Waves

Rock Collecting (A few of our favorites came home with us)

Wave Dancing

Wave Jumping

Leaving Footprints

I often forget how little I need to pack for a trip to the beach.   Here is what we brought.

Don't forget the water bottles to wash off sandy feet!

I should have left the chairs at home.  With no lifeguards on duty and two active kids, I didn’t get time to sit and read my book. We survived a small tantrum from Jared when he found out he had to leave his baby clam at the beach.  ”But he’s an orphan, Mama! ”  Jared cried piteously.   Still, I wouldn’t have traded a moment of my beach birthday adventure.

Happy Trails,

Bridget
