And We Had Fun Fun Fun, Until Mom Made Us Throw Out Our Melted Ice Cream Cones

We went to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk yesterday.





Where we ate junk food. Lots and lots of junk food.





And rode on roller coasters.




Some they LOVED.



Others ... NOT so much.





We watched a show on the beach... while Grady decided to do face plants in the sand instead.





And we hung with our Bubbie and Zadie.





In all, it was a fun day! The weather was perfect, allowing us to be comfortable in our long sleeved shirts until the evening, when were thankful to have sweatshirts. The kids more than got their money's worth of rides. And the baby ... well, he was just thrilled to eat his way through the Boardwalk.

Looks like so much fun! For kids and for you too hopefully! All except the faceplant in the sand - I would HATE that! But the junk food and rides and being right on the beach - how neat!

Ahhh, just like Jen's post a few months ago, this makes me miss Santa Cruz (my husband grew up about 2 miles from the beach and we lived there awhile after we were married). Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I'm glad you all had so much fun!!

(looks like great fun!)

Looks like fun... makes me wish we had a pier/boardwalk! Of course, that would mean living near the ocean...

And I can't believe y'all are in long sleeves and jeans in the middle of AUGUST!

Looks like SO much fun! Very nice pictures. :)

Oh that looks like so much fun. I must say, I'm with Grady. Eating my way through just about anything makes me happy.
I am glad you had a good time. It looks like a blast!

That sounds like a PERFECT day! Rollar coasters and yummy food! Hooray!

Fun! And you just so happened to be in (one of) my growing up neighborhoods. If you go again, look for the Ocean View Avenue (my street) playground. Overlooks the beach and a nice way to relax after a morning at the beach.

Oh! So much fun! We managed to fit an afternoon in Santa Cruz in during our R&R and it was a blast! We skipped the ice cream because we were cold, but mmmm! cotton candy! Oh, and my kids (the 7yo!) insisted we go on the Big Dipper coaster... oh my! :) Looks like you all had a wonderful time.

Faceplants, when you are 15 months old, are fun! When Gaby was that age, she made it an art form! *lol*

Looks like you guys had a blast!
