After church on Sunday the weather was GEORGOUS, so we took off for the coast. We needed the time off from remodeling and enjoyed the family time we were able to grab while celebrating Chloes birthday. We drove over to Newport and went to our favorite beach, "NYE beach." No that it not a joke...it truly is a beach in Newport! The beach was not over crowded, a little windy but perfect. The kids made sandcastles, played in the water, flew kites with Dad, enjoyed seeing the sea lions lounge on the docks, and the yummy candy store. When we got home our neighbors were out and about so we grabbed them and ate cake and ice cream in the back yard. A perfect Sabbath, birthday, family day!
