At the Dunes the Day Before School Starts????? Crazy!!!!!!!



Taking a break from 4 Wheelin!

I can make it! I know I can!:)



So I was thinking that it would be fun to do something unplanned, spontaneous and out of character for me the day before school started so after a lot of thought, I loaded up the car and took the kids over to Pismo Beach for the day to ride quads, play, eat and hang out with some friends. I didn't finish getting school supplies or even back to school clothes shopping done, my house was a little unorganized and it is 2 1/2 hours over to Pismo but..........we put caution to the wind, loaded up the Bell's quads in the Morris' trailer (thanks guys) and headed out for a super fun day! Even without Gary there we managed to figure everything out. We met up with some of the Holt family and the Wilcox Family. We took the trucks up the dunes and took turns on the quads. The kids played in the water, hung out around the fire pit, roasted marshmallows and ate really well! After our ride, and a few scary moments for mom, we went over to Morro Bay and met up with some of the Henriksen Family, played at the Tides Park and made our way to Cayucos to the Sea Shanty for dinner and ice cream pie. We finally found our way home around 10:30 and believe it or not, the boys did really well getting up for the first day of school. Tomorrow will be the real test though since they have to be at Seminary by 6:00am. :) As we embark upon this last year with all our children home, living under one roof, we want to remember to take full advantage of those "spontaneous" moments and live each minute to the fullest!
