Meet the Sullivans: It's the Little Things... Like the Beach in April

It's the Little Things... Like the Beach in April

Monday was our first beach day of the season! If you know the climate in our area you know it's not rare to have nice warm weather in the Spring and then have it rain for all of June, which is probably what will happen, so we're all for soaking up this gorgeous weather we've been having.

We played in the sand, built castles and stomped them to the ground (ahem, Owen)! We had some lunch, and ran in the waves! We had a great, great time!

When we first arrived at the beach Owen was a little scared of the waves. He'd hang on tight to our legs and go running back up the beach at the first sight of a wave. After a little while we turned chasing the waves into a game, and in true Owen fashion, he decided he was no longer afraid of them and tried jumping in. Good thing his Daddy was there to catch him before he landed! That water is freezing.

We are loving this weather too! 85 yesterday in Santa Monica! We're headed to the beach tomorrow. Hopefully all of this warm weather doesn't mean a lot of June Gloom!
