A couple of weeks ago our friends invited us to to stay at a family member's house in Nipomo. Let's see- 8 adults, 4 kids, 3 days, 2 beaches, 1 hike, and goooood food. It was one of the best trips I've been on, because it was so low-key and relaxed. We didn't have to plan anything, because the Bakers had the perfect itinerary, mostly outlined by where we were going to eat. (That's why we are friends.) It was: beach, pizza, beach, tri-tip sandwich, hike, Taco Temple (!) We had warm, sunny days at the beach, and the perfect overcast morning for a hike. We couldn't have planned it any better!

Also, it's so nice traveling with friends when other kids are involved. I don't feel like I have to apologize for every little noise Eliza makes, or for when she hits a wall at 1 o'clock while we are all hanging out the beach- because every other kid is hitting the same wall. Everyone is so supportive and understanding.  And, forget about the kids, we just have the best friends around! We stayed up so late every night talking about the most ridiculous things. Like, when my delirious giggle starts to surface, and Sam is passed out on the floor in the middle of the room. Good times...

On our last morning, we did a mini hike at Montaña de Oro and I finally took a second to pull out the camera. The rocks were unreal, and the water unbelievable. The kids ran around in the gritty sand that stuck to their feet like cake sprinkles. Si would hold Eliza's hand and show her around, while the little ones faces were plastered with the best baby drunk smiles.  If this all looks incredibly magical, it's because it was. If you're tired of looking at pictures of the rocky California coastline, then get outta here! Because I can't get enough of it.
