On President’s Day we took just Jace down to our favorite beach here in Aptos and set up for the afternoon. There was almost no one on our beach. Except for some wind and clouds to cover the warm sun, it was pretty beautiful. The boys ventured off and found some hot coals left over from the night before and got us a little beach bonfire going, using driftwood and any other scraps they could find. Soon we were all cuddled up by the fire, snacking and listening to the wind and waves. I even got some more reading in. It got pretty chilly out here, and even with a fire and robe on Jace couldn’t stay warm. We called it at that point but all the same it was an awesome day off with our first born. The ocean is so relaxing! And I’m pretty sure he was on cloud nine to have the day with us.
