Sum It Up Saturday (Beach Edition!)

Okay so I know that this is a couple of days late, but that’s only because I was out of town for 6 days and had no wifi. The HORROR!!!!

Sum it up Saturday June 27th 2015

But now that I am back to reality it’s time to share how my week went at the beach and share some great pics I got while on vacation! I won’t overload you with a bazillion pics. Only the few amazingly awesome shots will I share.

My husband and I are very fortunate to have family that owns a condo on the beach. And they are kind enough to let us stay, whenever we want! So we make it a point to go at LEAST once a year.

Our dog Ellie having fun at the beach! This was our first day at the beach and we just decided toΒ chillax and check out the beach on the park bench. Of course our doggie Ellie had to sit on the bench as well. Not the ground! No. Not ever.

Husband making fun of my duck face!

This is my husband making fun of my ducky selfie face. Okay yes, I was doing that pose. With those lips. Fine, I guess I deserved it.

Morro Bay Beach with my kids!

My my kids running along the pristine beach in Morro Bay, California. I’ve said it a million times and I will continue to say it. I was born in California and I’ll never leave. I just can’t. It’s part of me. Do you guys feel that way about your state?

Morro Bay California

Sure I added some filters here, but I swear, in person, it’s just as beautiful, if not more so..

S'mores all day every day. Yes please.

We had s’mores every night we were there! Yes, I cheated on my diet. Do I feel remorse? Nope! Vacation means you can cheat a little.. And they were ooey, gooey delicious!!!
My adorable 10 month old son can't get enough of this cutie!

I can’t even begin with my son in this picture. He is ten months old and complete perfection, and so are my other two kids. I may be a bit bias! Can you tell?

Gorgeous Pismo Beach

These kids actually like each other. I know. Crazy! Okay who am I kidding. They fight constantly. But I caught them hugging and I have to show it!

Pismo Beach Beauty

So that was my week guys. We also hit up the circus, elephant seal viewing, Morro Rock, Pismo Beach outlets, Avila Beach, and some BOMB restaurants. Please check out my “Must Visit Locations On The California Coast”.

    1. Oh my goodness, an oreo. That is genius. You shouldn’t have told me that, lol. I LOVE oreos. With my first pregnancy, I ate a whole pack of oreos a week. I am so ashamed..

  9. How awesome to have access to a condo on the beach! I would make it a point to be there a lot πŸ™‚ Looks like a fun time!

  16. What beautiful pictures! I lived on the ocean in Nova Scotia, Canada for three years and miss it soooo much. The waves are just gorgeous and I never get tired of watching them roll in and out. Thanks so much for sharing these pictures, and welcome back to the wifi world! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks so much, Nicole! Wow Canada? Always a place I’ve wanted to visit! And don’t even get me started on the WiFi. It was torture. Lol.

  17. Wow, this beach is breathtaking! I really love smores! Love the sweet moment that you captured of your kids hugging! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Cathy! I had to grab my camera quickly, wasn’t sure how long that hug would last! Haha

  18. Looks like a great vacation! I actually went to the beach today! Love the beach and can’t wait to go back.

    1. The beach is just beautiful. I mean it never gets old, am I right?!

  19. Such beautiful pictures! I love the beach too, it is my happy place, we usually go to Alabama or Florida!

    1. Hi Susan, thanks! I’d love to see pics of Florida beaches. Do you have any posts I can check out?

  20. It looks like you had a blast and the s’ mores look divine!

    Come share this on my summer-only linkup…it runs Thursday thru Saturday!


    1. Oh my goodness Shellie, I don’t know what it is about s’mores, but holy crap, they taste amazing! Lol I will definitely check out your link up come Thursday, thanks so much for the invite!!

  21. You know, I enjoy Cali when I visit, and I certainly feel homesickness for where I grew up from time to time, but being a milspouse has given me a taste of many different places that I thought I would never have. It has made me appreciate different places for different reasons.

    1. I completely understand, Jennifer. My sister’s husband is in the airforce so I know how moving around constantly goes. But seeing pics of all of the places she’s been, gotta admit, I’m a little jealous!

  22. mmmm now I want smores… As far as being completely in love with my home state… not so much… probably has something to do with the long winters and super mild summers and no beaches…. Just makes we want to travel more!

    Thanks for sharing your photos!

    1. Traveling is such fun, I really wish I could do it more often. However, I think we can all find beauty wherever we live! God made a gorgeous planet for us πŸ™‚
