Beach 2010

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Summer was a little too short for me. Since I had my class all of the month of June, I didn't really get to start having fun with the girls until July...and then everything went by so fast. We went to Tempe Beach park for fireworks on the 4th of July. We had the best spot. We were on the north side of the lake directly across from the paid venue part. These were definitely the best fireworks I have seen in AZ! At the end of July, we took a quick trip to visit my Grandparents and play at the beach. It was heavenly. The temperature was in the 70's during the day and even cooler at night. We slept with our windows open and wore jackets and shivered! We brought the girls bikes so they could ride all over around my Grandparents house, and Sydney had so much fun exploring. This year we decided to spend some time hunting for tide pools so a few of the beaches we went to were new to all of us. This is from one of our favorite spots in Carlsbad. Sydney and Sophie had so much fun jumping in the waves. We borrowed a boogie board from my Grandpa and Grandma and played on that too. The day we were at the beach in Carlsbad, the waves were pretty rough but we all had fun playing in the water. Oh, and of course we went to Harbor Fish Cafe to stuff ourselves with fish and chips!
As I mentioned earlier, our specific mission was to find some tide pools for Sydney. She loves all things ocean and beach! We drove down to Cabrillo State Park and hiked down to some smaller tide pools. Then we went back up to the top to see the light house and look out over the San Diego harbor. It was beautiful, dotted with hundred of sailboats. The other beach we went to (when the tide was out) was Swami's beach. It is mostly a surfer beach, I think. We had to hike down a million stairs to get to it and then we walked through some shallow water to these rocks that had some pretty good tide pools.

Sydney turned seven this summer and I took a few pictures (quickly because it was sticky hot that week)! I know I am always posting pictures of Sydney and Sophie :)

She just filled out this sheet about herself at I'll share some of her 7 year old thoughts about herself! Her favorite color is blue. Something that makes her very happy is dancing. Her favorite candy bar is chocolate. (I guess that means anything with chocolate in it) Her favorite subjects in school are math, science, and reading! (We're hoping she continues with this attitude!) If she could live anywhere in the world it would be California. If she could be an animal for a day, she would be a cat. Her favorite show is Phineas and Ferb. She still wants to be a dolphin trainer when she grows up. (hmmm, wonder when she'll grow out of that stage :) Her favorite book is Ivy and Bean. Her favorite junk food is ice-cream. And the cutest one...the sentence was I like...and Sydney wrote my little sister. Ahhhh, so cute!

Don't you think she is growing up way too fast!
