Here's the Schwirner gang at the beach. It was a little chilly, but not bad for mid January! We've had colder visits in August with the heavy summer fog.
The kids had a wonderful time at the beach. David, Kelton and Lukas had a blast running through the foam created by the strong surf, sometimes coming a little too close to the waves. Kelton even got his little shoes covered in foam.
All the kids loved playing in the sand. Even Jakob could enjoy the feel of it in his hands. Kelton and Lukas found some driftwood to play on.
Kelton wanted to walk everywhere on the beach. He still needed Daddy's support for balance, but he could go for long distances under his own power. He still enjoyed a high ride from Daddy once in a while.
One of our favorite beaches is Pebble Beach. Part of the beach is made up of millions of beautiful tiny pebbles. Here's Jacob playing with his mommy on the pebbles.
There are also lots of strange eroded rock patterns. Kelton concentrated feeling some of the tiny holes in the rock.
Finally after so much fun and running around Kelton couldn't resist a nap. He was so tired he slept on Mommy's lap on the beach for almost an hour, then stayed asleep while Daddy transported him down the beach, up to the top of the cold windy bluff, and into his carseat to finish his nap.
