The Heat Is On

Last week Jeff had three days off for his summer break so we thought it would be nice to get out and enjoy the great weather. Unfortunately the weather turned out to be 100+ degrees and not so great. :( So after many trips to the pool, A LOT of ice pops and a few more trips to the pool we thought a trip into the city would be a nice way to cool down. We packed a lunch and got ready for the beach and by the time we got over there it was windy and cold and definitely not a day for the beach. Since we were already there we decided to stop at Fort Point at the base of Golden Gate Bridge. Really cool, really cold!!

For day 2 we drove up to Windsor and met up with Grandpa and Grandma Chem, Jeff's grandparents, who were nice enough to take us to Armstrong Woods for a beautiful picnic. It is an amazing redwood forest with trees so tall you can't see the tops of them. Trey loved all the holes in the trees and thought they were great hiding spots

After lunch we headed down to Doran Beach at Bodega Bay and although it was a little cool it was so much fun. This was Kaden's first time at the beach and he LOVED it. The water was a little cold but no one seemed to mind. 

Trey, who in the past won't touch the water or even the wet sand, couldn't be pulled out of the water. At one point a wave came in up to his chest and he just laughed, splashed around, and ran right back in for more!

In the "end" it was a great couple of days!!

Wow, that is so much fun! Kaden is more brave than Linc, if the water hit him, he screamed! I'm glad you got a break.
