Mariah & Charlie & a new haircut

mariah and Charlie came down to visit right after the fire. It was so nice to have them here although I did have to work most of the time they were visiting. But, I don't think they minded; they were out on the town mostly. They got to buy some of the basics they needed. Charlie flew home mid trip and then flew back to drive home with Mariah and I looked at his suitcase and said, "everything you own fits into that suitcase huh?" He laughed and said, "ya." Monet loved Charlie! I think because he was so soft spoken with her. Monet would follow him around and hold his hand. It was so sweet.

Monet got her first hair cut. I think it looks very cute! Robby was so mad I cut it. I think that's really funny. He was so attached to her long hair. I loved it too, but it was pretty much to her waist and I would have to condition it every night, comb out the tangles and either braid it or put it up every morning. Way too much work. So, this is much easier.

This is actually Monet pretending to play the guitar with her blow-up toy. I don' tknow where she got this from, but she does it a lot. "Look, I play the guitar."

Teeny Pink Bikini




This is my big girl! This was low tide down by the Huntington Beach Pier a few weeks ago. I can't believe how big she is getting. Monet says, "I wanna wear my kini." Whenever we go to the beach she asks if her friends' Ryland and Makenzie will be there, "Where's Ryand and baby Kenzie?" They are Jim and Dara's two super cute kids. We love playing with them too.

camping

so, we finally made it camping. Third time's a charm. We went to San Clemente first and they already gave away their cancellations. San Mateo, which is usually a sure thing, had a big party coming in. So, we settled down at trails aka the San Onofre Bluffs. The camp site was perfect. It's perched on a bluff that overlooks the ocean. You have to hike down very steep stairs to get to the beach. My calves are still sore-I'm beyond out of shape. Monet actually made it up and down each day without being carried. The three amigos eating some camping junk food. They actually do love eachother. Monet always asks where "Ryand" and "Baby Kenzie" are when we go to the beach.
We stopped at San Onofre on the way home. This was my favorite day. The beach is so convenient. We just backed-up our truck to the sand, put an easy-up out and chilled in the shade.
I would love to have VW bus!

Jim and Robby

Monet and Ryland playing in the tent.
Could we possibly have any more stuff!!
Chuck, Christopher & Maurella came Friday night. Robby, me, Mariah, Charlie, and Monet arrived earlier, set up camp and had a quick surf session. Charlie actually caught a wave too. It was so nice to sit around the warm campfire, play songs on the guitar, and roast marshmellows.
Baby Makenzie and Maurella.
