I seriously just spent like 545 hours trying to put all the pictures up from this weekend. I also just realized how late in the week it was and that my other posts didn’t well… post :( So I’m going to hunt those down and post them too. They are good ones :) Anyways, Long Beach was the best vacation in a while! :) We got up at the crack of dawn and made coffee, got ready and headed to Super1 for ice. We were almost on the freeway when I realized we forgot the griddle and the money that I had gotten out so we could have cash and control the spending a little. We ended up being a half hour late for getting on the road! Oh well! :) It was our vacation and we were trying out best not to be stressed out.
I’m definitely singing Taylor Swift with my FAV. coffee cup!
We got lucky and Long Beach was hosting a sand creation contest! It was so cool to see how they started and what the end product looked like. There were A LOT but I only took pictures of the ones I really liked :)
We hung out a little downtown Long Beach. It was kind of lame, you know since the shops are ALL the same, but we made the best of it. I convinced everyone to play putt-putt :) Susan and I found this great cut out. She tried to eat me.
The next day, we went hiking around to look for the light houses. We saw 2 of them and they were gorgeous. It’s so interesting to think that people actually had to live there and light them everyday. We ended up with beautiful weather the whole trip! It was amazing to have sunny and not so windy weather at the beach!
This is my ladies Smith and Wesson and Adrian found a bazooka! :)
On the way back, we stopped by Fort Canby. It was awesome!! They let you go in and out of the fort and it was AWESOME! I’m such a history buff, so when I get to experience it first hand, it totally rocks my world!

I’m so proud of the soldiers for having such organizational shelving
We went back to camp for lunch, and to put on our bathing suits. And we talked about going back to Dead Mans Cove and relaxing on the beach. Susan and I filled a nalgen bottle with Wine :)
We made up Beach Olympics! We did joisting, javelin and spot throwing! It was a blast!
We went home on Monday afternoon. It was WAAAY too long of a drive! But we picked up Olivia from Grandma’s and made it home safely! :)
Oh wow.. look at those arms.. I mean umm..
It was such a great trip! Thanks Mom for taking care of Olivia :) We owe you big time! :) :)
