Ahhh yes....Spring break!
I don't know about the kiddos or the hubs, but I couldn't wait to get out as a family and have some fun!
We started it off with some miniature golf and go cart racing.
Little Miss had her first experience with mini golf and loved every minute of it. She even got a couple of holes in one!
We had my mom and cousins join us.
The more the merrier!
Since we were a large group we opted out of playing all 36 holes and just played the 18.
This boy was my passenger on the go cart. It had been years since I drove one of those.
Next part of our vacation was the Mystery Spot in Santa Cruz.
The boys enjoyed it....Little Miss, not so much. I ended up getting very dizzy and almost didn't make the whole tour.
It was a mystery indeed!
It was long overdue since we have been to the beach. We stayed for three days!
Two of the days had perfect weather. The last day it rained and we had to pack up early and head home.
Why not throw in some time over at the Boardwalk....
My oldest finally got the courage to ride his first real roller coaster. I asked how he liked it when he was done and I think it was a mix of fear & fun.
And this was the last day of our stay as the clouds stayed dark and the rain came down. Before we left there was a break during the rain. I wanted to see the ocean once more to say goodbye. We decided to get out and the hubs and kiddos stayed on the path down to the pier. I kicked off my shoes and walked along the shoreline. It was exactly what I needed! Me, the ocean smell, the waves crashing, the wet sand, and no one else with me.
My kind of therapy. I got a recharge!
I could have stayed there for hours.
All in all a very busy, but wonderful spring break.
The best part was just being together.
