Day 1

We had a nice drive to California yesterday.

Makenna cooperated sitting in her seat for 6 hours and we only stopped once at a rest stop.(which totally disgusted all of the girls)

I love driving down the street to the condo and seeing the view of the ocean. If you know the Murray's  you'll have a visual while reading this next line.

We walk across the street to the beach, put our belongings down, take a few pictures and begin playing in the water when suddenly a huge wave takes our cell phones, shoes and sand toys while splashing my camera and the ipad. We were able to catch the cell phones, dry off the camera and ipad by borrowing a dry towel from a lady that was smart enough to set her things on a huge rock. So we now have two broken cell phones and 3 missing shoes.

Hoping for a not so wet day at the beach today!

Have a beautiful Sunday!

Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
