Beach Trip: Seaside

My mom is a member of a vacation club that has condos all over. Often there are last minute openings for condos and she found an ocean front pent house suite in Seaside. How can you pass that up? So we packed up for a super quick trip to the beach!

Our first day in Seaside was beautiful. We even had our sweatshirts off most of the day! The kids played with daddy in the sand and water, while Grammy, Miley and I relaxed and soaked in the surroundings. In the evening we headed to dinner and let the kids choose one fun thing to do in town. They chose the miniature train. They had peddle cars there too, so the kids had tons of fun. We headed back to the condo and swam for a while, then put the kids to bed. My mom stayed at the condo while Shaun and I got to take a walk on the beach at sunset. We stopped and got ice cream on the way back and enjoyed it while watching the Olympics! Then the real fun began. Gage started throwing up everywhere. Well, part way through the afternoon we all noticed Gage eating sand, and a lot of it. I didn't think it was a big deal, but apparently I was wrong. He puked up sand all night long. The next day we all woke up super tired. My mom and I went for a walk on the beach and we packed up and headed to the aquarium. It's very small, but the kids' favorite part was getting to feed the seals! After the aquarium we headed to the beach for a bit, but everyone was tired and Gage still wasn't feeling great, so we headed home after about an hour. It was a very fast trip, but minus the puke we had a great time!

Miley's first time at the beach!

Jumpin the waves

The kids and Shaun dug a big pit and filled it with water. They called it their hot tub!

This is what they looked like when we got back from the beach on that first day - tired and dirty!

The miniature train

and the peddle cars. I was surprised how fast they could get those things going.

The boys are showing their shark teeth!

Our view from the condo - BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!

Gage feeding the seals

They would clap and jump and perform to get you to throw them a fish!

Maisey loved touching the star fish, but Gage wouldn't put his hand in.

This is Gage on that second day. He's a tired boy!

Miley and Grammy!

What a fun trip, minus the puking. I love that picture of Miley on the sand in her bouncy seat with her name.

Beach area is always best for vacation and lifestyle most of the people try to book condos near beach most of the real state company provide this facilty such as Best condo for sale in Mexico.
