Our 1-day Spring Break

Thursday, was our one day of Spring Break. Why, you might ask? Because Tyler only has class on Thursdays....other days he has clinicals which he doesn't get excused from. Silly, huh? We took advantage and drove down to Santa Cruz Boardwalk. We had lunch there, played a few video games and weren't planning on going to the beach, but the waves were huge and irresistible so to the beach we headed. Who knew you could have so much fun in the freezing cold, a little rain now and then, and freezing cold water? We had a blast!

I took off Damon's pants and shoes so he could run around in the waves, he loved it. Andee fell down in the water before I could get her pants off, so off they came, too. After she felt the shock of the cold water, she stayed and played in the sand. Tyler and I also couldn't resist getting a little wet, so we rolled up our pants and let the huge waves hit us. Unfortunately we couldn't roll up our pants high enough, so we got pretty soaked. It was so much fun!

Since Andee's pants got soaked, we used Tyler's shirt (after Damon) and turned them into pants for Andee. She didn't seem to mind, notice she doesn't have shoes either...also soaked. Poor Damon was freezing cold! He was running through some of the waves when a huge wave came in and he wasn't ready for the size of it and it totally took him out! He rolled a couple of times in the wave (freezing cold). His sweater, shirt and undies were soaked, so we used Tyler's shirt to put on his naked, freezing cold body while Tyler ran to the gift shop to buy him a new shirt. Luckily I had taken off his pants, boots, and socks earlier, so at least they were dry for him.

Here are some of the rides Damon and Tyler went on. Damon went on the kiddie rides by himself, and one of the bigger rides with Tyler. There were a lot of bigger rides, but since I'm pregnant, I couldn't go on any, and therefore Tyler said he didn't want to either. That's okay, it probably saved us $20.

It sounds like you guys had so much fun! You guys are pretty creative with those pants for Andee...left me laughing pretty hard.

Sounds like everyone had a lot of fun despite being freezing. I love Andee's pants you guys made for her! Maybe she can start a new baby fad.
We went to the Santa Cruz beach the day Daniel was adopted. He loved eating the sand. But the boardwalk wasn't open so that sucked.

Haha Damon looks absolutely miserable. He looks so cold. How fun I'm glad you guys got to have some quality family time.
