100616 – 100816: Cruisin’ the Coast

We came to Cruisin’ the Coast last year and really enjoyed our time (even with a blowout and a breakdown or two). So we decided to try again, in a different ride. 

And it’s been fantastic. 


We left after the funeral on Wednesday and we’ve been riding and sitting ever since. 


The kids have been playing in the sand. And sand is everywhere. But they love it. 

We’ve actually been quite lazy. And it’s been really, really nice. I’m not sure a day has gone by since Johnpaul arrived back in Mid-September that we haven’t been needed by someone or something else. 

So, having some just family time has been needed. Papa J and Nana came down with us and so the kids have had fun with them too. 

And we’ve seen some really cool cars. Our kids loved this one. It had a minion in the back. 


We’ve relaxed and eaten until we were stuffed. We’ve relaxed, watched cars, and really had a good time. 

And we’ve worn out the kids a time or two. 


If they stop long enough, they go out. What sweet babies. 

Thank you to everyone who has been with us through these past few weeks. You all are great. Thank you for our pastors appreciation day- your donation was used for this trip. We have really enjoyed it all. It’s been great. 

We are headed back today and will get back to our daily grind soon. We will hopefully come back with a rested mindset.
