Bunny ears and sandy bums..

So we grabbed our bunny ears and hopped our way down to Newport Beach. Met up with Ryder, Cyndi, & Ramsey, and were off to start our adventure..

First stop: The local farmers market where we picked up dried apricots, some crazy good pesto, and got some rippin tattoos..!

Since I like cupcakes, I got this one on my left leg.

Im so jealous.. Ramsey loves the hit show 'Frasier', so he got this killer one.

So Awesome..

Rebecca got a cute one of our cat GiGi. Awwww.. So cute.

And Cyndi got this lovely Swayze-Centaur on her right thigh. Nice colors huh? She'll be turning some heads on the beach today!

And little Ryder got the best one of all. It turned out sooooooo cute. Im not really sure I get the design, but he really seemed to want this one. So what else can you do..? Tell a 7 month old he cant have a 'Guilty of being delicious' tattoo?

No way.

As for Olive, we had a great design picked out of a kitten driving a dragster that was exploding into flames, but she was getting a little fussy, so we decided to hurry up and get to the beach..

And Grandma, if you are reading this and about to have a heart attack.. No, we did not get these tattoos.

Well, except for Ramsey.

And back from the market, tattoo-less and hungry, we came home for a quick lunch.

Ryder and Olive got caught up on old times..

And Ramsey showed us some new tickle spots.. He had Olive rolling with laughter. It was so funny and Ive kept torturing her, I mean tickling her ever since.

And as the mommies freshened up, we had a little daddy time. I love this shot.

Watering can in hand and all ready to go!

Bubble boy Ramsey skipped through the hills with his magic bubble wand. He had enchanted children and dogs running after him..

Eventually we made it down to the sand.. Now to find a spot to pitch the blanket.

Not the sunniest of days, but the ocean was mesmerizing.

We walked around a bit and checked out the tide pools.

I did my best not to fall.. Those were some very sharp and jagged rocks.

Ahhh. It was good to be on soft ground again.. Cant imagine being out here with flip flops..

So we set the kids up,

and let them have their private little moment.

But Olive kinda knew she was being watched..

Had to give Ryder a try at wearing shades.. I think the concept is lost on 8 month olds.. They just want to pull em like wishbones.

I think Olive was into Ryder, but he was kind of distracted.

She even tried her wonderfully loud 'Pterodactyl' call..

And it worked like a charm.. well, sort of.

Its hard to let these babies sit there for five minutes without hugging and kissing them.

And whats this?? Even the photographer got to be in a pic or two..? Thats great news for me.

And while the sun and surf gave us this wonderful day, we decided it was time to start packing up.

Grab the kiddos, roll up the blankets, and start heading home..

And after a lovey sunset walk through the neighborhoods,

We were home kicking back with some cervezas, mushy carrots, and local burritos..

It was so nice to come back here to relax after such a long and lovely day. (You had the feeling like you'd be sleeping well tonight)

Thank you guys for such a great time!
