With our big trip just two days away, Kevin and I wanted to stay close to home for the weekend. Sunday night we drove down to San Clemente to spend the night at the Bank's house. We were planning on going to San Onofre early for Memorial Day. We woke up at 4:00am! Got in line to park by 4:45am. At 6am when the beach opened, there was a HUGE line of cars waiting. Getting up super early really paid off because we got our favorite spot. Fire pit, picnic table, close to the bathrooms and showers!
Hannah and Gavin at 6:00am ready to play in the sand.They literally played in the sand for about two straight hours. Around 8:45 I got Hannah's wetsuit on and we walked to the water and waited for Kevin. Hannah is really getting the hang of surfing.
Gavin was dying to go too. He could not contain his excitement while I put the wetsuit on him. This was his first time out. He looked so little out there.
We are in the middle of potty-training Gavin... Somehow he figured out he could just pee anywhere at the beach. He would drop his shorts to his ankles and fire away. I was so embarrassed. Kevin taught him to pee on the plant. Stinkin' little boys.
And a bonfire to cook our food!
Around 2:00pm, Kevin was out for his 3rd session and the kids were cranky. I made a "beach bed" and laid down with them. In about 5 minutes they were both totally out. They slept there until 4:00 when it was time to go.
They got a drink of water and a snack in the car and went back to sleep until we got home at 6:00.
Felt good to take a shower and get our PJ's on, we are going to bed early!
