Instagram Monday

It has been a good week. It rained!! We don't know what to do with ourselves. ;)

 Playing in the 'backyard'. The creek never gets old. Always so many ways to be imaginative.

 My sweet Stella.

 It was the Santa Cruz Mountians Wine Passport day this weekend. The kids did great. Brought their backpacks and were up for an adventure of finding fun places to run up the vineyards and find the best snacks.

A little vacation

We stayed around here for the holidays this year. This is the first year in our 12 years of marriage we stayed home. It was really great to wake up in our own home on Christmas morning and make some new traditions here.
But staying home for the break gave me a little cabin fever. We did some day trips around the coast, but I was feeling like a little vacation was in order.
We headed down to Avila Beach, just outside of San Luis Obispo. It was pretty perfect.

We enjoyed some breweries in SLO.

Our room was pool and ocean side. We heard the waves crashing from our bed. It was fabulous.

The first morning the girls were up at 7:01 and ready to go for a swim. They were so excited to be on vacation. It was so fun to watch.

The pool, the room with closets with 'real' doors, the breakfast buffet, the beach and snow cones. The excitement was over flowing.

It was the perfect ending to the Christmas break.
