Beating the Heat

Yesterday was not as bad as Friday, but I was OVER this whole heat wave BS. So, after lunch, we piled into the car and headed to Santa Cruz. OH MY... it was like stepping into HEAVEN itself. It was in the low 70s and pure divinity.

Carter and Bunny had a wonderful time playing on the beach, and Carter was asking for more beach the whole way home, until he passed out in his car seat. Paul and Carter 'built' a huge sand pile--literally a big pile of sand, and Bunny ran around splashing and enjoying herself a lot. Normally It's Beach is too chilly, but this was a great day on It's. It was crowded, but only by It's standards. Still plenty of room to play, and the spray was so nice and chilly. Cole got his first time with toes dipped in the water. He didn't cry, but he did pull his feet up.

Last night the temps dropped to 56 and it feels actually nice in the house now. So, yay... I will cook breakfast today, and Carter will be so excited that it's finally 'bacon time' (I cook bacon once a week, and he calls it 'bacon time'. He is too funny.

He is so cute and funny about 'bacon time'. He will smell the 'bacony goodness' and then climb up onto a stool by the counter and smile and say, "Bacon time?" :)
