The Southern California Experience
Again, I'm sorry that I haven't visited any one's blogs! My Google Reader informs me that there are almost 150 wonderful posts that I have missed this week... I will play catch up after Tuesday... please don't give up on me yet!
We went to the beach today with the in-laws. They loved the drive over. Everything was so green and pretty... nothing like the frozen wonderland of Idaho where they came from. It was -14 when they left the cold and ice. When they arrived here it was a balmy 65. Not too shabby, eh?
We were a little worried that our beach experience would get rained out, but it wasn't. The sky was partly cloudy, but it was warm enough that we did not need jackets.
We walked out on the pier and watched the sea gulls, ducks and pelicans dive in and out of the water for food. The ocean was a sapphire blue - so pretty! We were at the end of the pier when Red called out for us to look at something he had seen. Now, this kid has some pretty darn amazing eyes. His eyes seem to catch every little movement - especially wildlife. So, I wasn't too surprised that he was the first one on the pier to notice these lovelies... A pod of dolphins swam past the end of the pier! It was such a fun thing to watch them swim about.Now, I know that some of you are looking at that and thinking, "Why, I do believe that picture looks like a blog banner! Melissa, will you be turning that into a blog banner any time soon?" And the answer... "Why yes! Yes I think I will! How did you know that? Oh.... because I turn EVERYTHING into a blog banner..." I'll probably work on it next week. We'll see how it goes.
So, what amazing fun things did you do this weekend?
