Spring Break at Santa Monica Beach. See more pics at growinguphui.blogspot.com

Happy Spring!

OMG! I took a lot of pictures during our staycation!! Warning: kid overload.

Living deep, deep in the valley (far away from the ocean) gives me MOUNTAIN FEVER people!

Too cold to swim but warm enough to play by the ocean.

Once in a while, beyond the valley's backyard obstructions you can catch a beautiful sunset.

We had ice cream 4x this week!

The hazelnut truffle churro waffle ice cream sandwich wins for the ultimate childhood delicacy. There's something irresistible about hot/cold unions that go hand n' hand - i.e. ice cream sundaes w/hot fudge, hot apple pie a la mode, brownie a la mode...mmm...mmm...mmm.
