In the warm California sun

We spent Sunday afternoon and evening at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. I've been wanting to take Jax so I suggested it to Ryan after church and we decided to take a last-minute day trip. Unfortunately, everyone else in NorCal had the same idea. The 1.5 hour drive took over 3 hours, then trying to find parking took another hour. I ended up having to climb into the backseat and nurse Lexi while we were stuck in gridlock traffic. Awesome.

Once we finally got there and parked, we headed onto the Boardwalk with the masses. It actually ended up being really fun! Jax is fearless and rides everything he is big enough to ride... While wishing he could also ride the grown up roller coasters. I mostly just pushed Lexi around while the boys had their fun. We ate corn dogs, cotton candy and deep fried cheesecake. Yum! We had a grand ol' time and I can't wait to take Jax back. When it's not a holiday weekend, obviously!
