We spent most of the weekend at the beach - kind of an end-of-summer thing, I guess. So Saturday was spent at the usual beach (shhh, it's a secret), and it's probably a good thing, too, as we heard temperatures in the Valley were really hot. It felt like half the ward was there, too, which was nice. Plus, Scott (who feels like part of the family, sometimes) was heading off to school on Monday, so we wanted to have a little farewell party. We brought a small grill and had carne asada - which always tastes even better on the beach!
We decided to make Monday a little more of a family day at the beach, and hadn't been to Carpinteria for a while. Unfortunately, we forgot the camera, but it was fun getting some breakfast on Linden and eating a late lunch at The Spot. (We actually left home early enough both days that we didn't run into much traffic, which is practically a miracle for us.) Of course we hit Robitaille's, too! My favorite is the brown licorice but Jamie always likes the chocolate-covered honeycomb. I don't remember what the kids ended up with, but it probably didn't last long anyway.
But to top things off, me and the kids watched Jaws on Sunday night. Yep, nothing like watching a movie about sharks eating beachgoers and then going to the beach ourselves.
