Newport Beach and Newport Dunes

We spent a wonderful long weekend camping at Newport Dunes with Gramma and Papa, Aunties Crissi and Jen, Uncles Joe and John and many, many cousins. We had such a great time and the kiddos just love camping. We spent one morning trying to go to the tide pools, but missed low tide so just spent time at the beach instead. We went swimming at the pool, had fun digging in the sand in the bay, enjoyed singing and roasting marshmellows around the campfire and had a spectacular time just hanging out with our wonderful family.


Papa Paul taking some of the "cousins" for a walk around the campgrounds and marina.

We rented this bicycle built for.....8! Had a great workout peddling the kiddos around.


Dylan getting some air in the pool with Daddy :)


Uncle Joe showed the kids some of the local plant life


We missed the low tide and the tide pools were all full, so we just spent some time climbing the rocks and playing in the water.


Connor and Dylan exploring the rock crevices. What amazing creatures can be found!


A helping hand is always nice! Kiley helping Brooklyn cross the rocks.


Hailey stopping long enough to pose for Mommy.


Little Lillian found her own piece of the ocean to splash around in.


Connors turn to pose for the camera


The crew having fun in the Pacific. Caity was chasing the boys with some seaweed, but beware.....

Was this really the only place you could find reception Brian?

One of our early mornings watching a video in the trailer....I know... we really know how to rough it:)


Evidence of a REALLY FUN weekend. As we were packing up to leave, Micah fall asleep outside our trailer... just like this.


A few days before packing up to go camping, Crissi, Norma and I packed up the kiddos and headed off to Newport Beach for a few hours of beach fun!

Its great to have so many cousins to play with!


Matthew got buried in the sand.... by his MOM!

After not seeing a new post for almost two months, I can't help but think that I've said something to offend or upset you. If this is the case, I sincerely apologize.

I really have enjoyed reading your blog so far and I can't wait to read more about your adventures in 2012.

As we all know, cheap wow gold you can learn the best way to reach the wow gold cap. What is the first thing that you have guessed? The Auction house? Yes, this is a good way to make the wow gold, but it is not the fastest way to reach the WoW gold gap. For this take a ton of time, even you are in the highest speed, it will need you a lot of time. May be you can get bunch of gold for you, but the wow gold is too expensive and you this against Blizzard’s Terms of Service. power leveling wow If the wow gold is too good for you, it will help you get enough gold and silver to purchase much needed upgrades for your character. the more gold we have the better the equipment and weapons you can buy, and the faster the speed of leveling up. And a good Wow gold guild will tell you is about that: how you can make loads of gold from just doing the normal quests and exactly the way to do them so you make more gold; how to use the auction house to reap in huge profits on the items you sell; best wow gold how to make big money from the elements in the game.
