We made plans to go to Santa Cruz and got ourselves on the road @ 10 AM. Arrived at the beach around 12:30, had our sandwiches, then played all afternoon in the sun. It was a gorgeous day around 80 degrees. We left around 7 PM. I think the boys were happy to have a day relaxing at the beach. I know I was. After four 18 hour days at work last week, I could've used this whole week to relax. But you take what you can get, right?
