4th of July!
We had a great 4th of July and fun activities lately. We took a beach trip to Venice Beach which was really fun and nice to be out in the perfect weather smelling the lovely ocean air. It is always interesting to watch the street performers and see all the funky people that hang out at the beach, it keeps it quite entertaining. I love to just watch the waves of the ocean and feel the warm sand on my feet, it is so relaxing and a good way to release stress. Of course I couldn't come home without a sun burn so it's good old aloe vera for me. I just wish I could stay at the beach all day everyday.Actual day of the 4th was fun, it was sort of our first little family party. The rest of my family was over in Catalina Island so Kyle and I actually had the place to ourselves. The day started off by sleeping in and then heading over to Del Taco, of course, for lunch. It was off to Sport Chalet for daddy, a.k.a. Kyle, to look for a new pair of shoes. Unfortunately when you have a foot size of 13 it's hard to find some in stock. Back at the house we had our own little swim party and bbq. Evelyn loved swimming and I thought she looked so cute in her swimsuit. When we got in the spa she immediately feel asleep. Kyle cooked up some steak, hot dogs and corn-on-the-cob, it was all so good. We ended the day with watching some movies on my parents big screen and watching the Magic Mountain fireworks show from the balcony.
