I should really call this post "Not Costa Rica." So, for Taylor's HS graduation I thought we would go on some FABULOUS out of this world trip, so I tried booking a trip to Costa Rica. But I guess it just wasn't meant to be. Someone told it was the rainy season and August is not a good time to go, so I got talked out of it. (FYI - our neighbors went instead... they said it was FABULOUS - oh, well some other time.) Instead we went to San Diego with Melissa and Chad's crew. IT WAS A GREAT SUBSTITUTE!
Taylor and Whitney (Taylor's BFF - do people still say that?), trying to get some rays and some reading done. I don't think either was accomplished. However, they did get some "riding" done, on some awesome beachcomber bikes.

Carly and Cooper love the sand and the water. They would stay in all day if they could.
Dana could handle the water only up to his ankles (that's 2 more inches than me). That water was cold!

Give that boy a BOOGIE Board! He got pretty good!

Love this girl.... will dearly miss her when she goes to BYU-I. Our house will be very quiet!

The sand monster! Now that girl can make a sand castle and boogie board like no other.

The whole gang... (minus Melissa's crew)... Notice the red faces! We didn't mind. The week before was overcast and cold.... so we got lucky. Great, relaxing family vaca. It's not Costa Rica... but hey, it will do.
