We recently visited my soon-to-be sister in law in Newport Beach to celebrate her bridal shower (pics here) and while we were there, Kelsey and my mom visited the beach, naturally.
It was cold, but that made it even better because we had the beach to ourselves. It was Kelsey’s first time at the beach (since she was old enough to remember it) and it truly was a memorable day.
We splashed. We ran. We dipped our toes in. And this mom freaked out when I realized that five-year olds have no fear and just run straight for the water. Kelsey’s newest stuffed animal ,”Elsa” came along too. Here are some pictures from our day at Newport Beach.
See all the seashells? She was on her hands and knees picking up every. single. shell that she could find. Thank you to The St. Regis Monarch Beach for gifting us this adorable sand bucket and shovel. It helped us pick “a thousand” seashells. And the gold nail polish? Her polish of choice at the salon earlier that day. I actually loved it on her, great taste this one has.
We were on our way back to the car when we spotted this amazing brownie in the window of the Stuft Surfer Cafe. We had to go in and check it out. It kind of had our name written all over it.
As we were walking out we ran into a couple who had a real life Elsa Boo dog! Kelsey introduced her dog to this one, named Nola. It was so cute! Thanks to this couple for letting us have five minutes with your dog.
What a great day this was with my favorite girls! Until we meet again, California. It’s been real!
