My Murrieta Vacation

We recently took a vacation to Murrieta to visit my friend.  I go on this vacation every summer with my boys.  I love it because I get to see one of my very bestest friend (and her family).  I love visiting her because she is awesome and we can just hang out and relax together.  I love visiting her because she has a pool and jacuzzi.  I love visiting her because we get to go to the beach.  I love this vacation because it is inexpensive - no hotel, no meals out, no crazy visits to expensive parks and such.  In the recent months, finances seem to be getting tighter and tighter.  But I love that I don't have to feel guilty about this vacation because it is very low cost.  Gas to get to my friend's house and I help pay for food.  That's it!  Then we spend the week lounging by the pool, watching the kids swim, letting the kids relax and watch movies, and just chillaxin!  It is so wonderful.

One of my favorite things to do is go to the beach and watch my boys play.
My boys with their friend gazing out to sea.
They love the water, the waves, the sand, the seaweed.  They love it all and it is SO different from their native desert habitat!

Canon's HUGE hole.
This year, Canon dug a huge hole - he was trying to make it big enough for his whole body, but he got started too late!

Kieron loves running in and out as the waves crash!
The vacation was awesome.  The boys love swimming every day.  I love lounging in the sun every day.

I'm not really ready for the school year to start.  Summer is my favorite season.  But we have had a good time this summer and I am trying to be grateful for what I have!
