Beach Getaway

We had the opportunity to stay two nights at a timeshare (courtesy of Marlene and her points) down at Capistrano Beach.  They only had mid week availability, so we pulled the kids out of school and Matt took three vacation days. It was well worth it!  The weather was PERFECT and we had such a great time. We made the most of it and headed down Wednesday morning and spent a full day at Newport Beach before checking into the hotel that evening.  September is usually so nice at the beach, and since it's after summer no one was there, it was great! The water was really warm too, we didn't feel cold at all swimming in the ocean!




Sand monster!

The second day we swam at Laguna Beach.  It was fun, but we only stayed a couple of hours because Everett needed a nap and the waves were breaking right on shore so the kids couldn't really swim. 


While Everett napped, I took the big kids swimming at the hotel.  We pretty much had the place to ourselves, it was awesome! 
  They had free cupcake decorating, which both kids enjoyed.  They each decorated 5 cupcakes, lol.


Danny and Jolene came out that evening to hang out and have dinner with us.  It was so nice!

Swimming in the pool with the ocean across the street is perfect!


Friday morning we checked out of our hotel and walked around the point at Dana Point for a while, had lunch in Laguna, and headed home before the traffic got bad.  

Such a fun couple of days away!
