We started the summer with a quick trip to the coast.  It was the perfect distraction for what is coming tomorrow afternoon: scan results.  Anxious mess ever since we got home.

Of all the attractions in San Diego, my kids chose an aircraft carrier museum.   I don't get it, but all the boys were on the same page.  "AWESOME!!!"

Our hotel had a non-chlorine, heated, outdoor pools.  All day fun.
Underwater selfie contest.

Winner?  Teenagers are super fun.

Boogie boards!

They only make sandcastles now to destroy them with sand bombs.  We have lost all the artistry of the job.

I think I feel closer to God on a beach than just about anywhere.

It is so comforting to me that there are still things to be discovered at the bottom of the ocean.  

Everything I love.
This guy too.

Love spending uninterrupted time with my family.   Yes to family vacations!


  1. These pictures are amazing--wow! I've been thinking about you all day. I hope you get the best results.

  2. So glad you got to go have such a great time. You are in our constant thoughts and prayers.

  3. This looks like incredible fun. I need details. Which beach was this? I want to go there.

  4. Beautiful pictures! Looks like so much fun! What kind of camera do you have that lets you take underwater selfies?!
