Memorial Day Weekend Trip ~ Day 2

By our second day of vacation, we were all starting to relax and enjoy just "be".  The morning was spent cuddling on the couch, catching up on a little work and watching some shows.  After getting dressed, we biked over to a local bakery to pick up some challah for Shabbat.  Since we were there, some of us may have decided we needed some cookies as a little snack.  We then enjoyed a leisurely group bike ride back to the condo so the kids could enjoy some afternoon beach time.  We decided to take the kids over to the ocean or the "wavy" beach as the kids called it. We thought they would enjoy playing in the waves with their boogie boards.  Sadly, the water was still a tad cold for them to really enjoy surfing the waves, but they had fun and kept themselves entertained anyway.  They looked for shells, played in the sand and tried to "ride" the waves.  At one point, I even waded into the chilly water to help Aiden and Madi "ride" the waves.  Aiden loved it for awhile until he got too cold. Madilyn wanted to try it, but ended up in tears as she would fall off of her board into the cold water. Oh well!  I may not have true surfer kids.  Our night concluded with steaks and roasted vegetables from the grill.  It was the perfect way to start Shabbat.
