We introduced the kids to California during fall break. The kids were expecting warm Mexico ocean water – they were in for a surprise! They loved the waves but they were wishing the water was warmer. Evidently the pacific coast doesn’t get much warmer than we experienced – clearly our Arizona blood is thin!

The older kids braved the water, the younger kids dipped a toe a time or two but stayed relatively dry. Steve did some boogie boarding and looked like a little kid out there with all his excitement. I got wet…up to my ankles and then my feet went numb and I knew it was time to retreat. 🙂

As you can tell from the pictures – we had a horrible time! The kids were just miserable. 🙂

My kids seem to love any and all vacations that involve swimsuits and friends, a winning combination.
