This past weekend marked 40 years of marriage for Jeff's parents.
That's right...4-0 YEARS!
So awesome!
To celebrate they took the family to Seascape in Aptos, CA.

Oh my was like a little piece of Hawaii...a little cooler though:)
The resort was amazing and perfect for vacationing with the kids...or alone with your lovey!

Here is the view from our 2 bedroom Ocean View Condo. We had 2 of these condos next door to each other. Jeff's parents shared with his sister and family. We could walk right out this back door and onto the grass. Beyond that was the ocean.
Friday evening we called for our golf carts to take us down to the beach. (Anytime you want to go anywhere, you just call down to the front desk, and their drivers in golf carts come pick you up.)

We enjoyed a beautiful sunset.

And smores by a bonfire...all set up by the resort.
This is what we found upon arriving...
Enough chairs, waters, and smore makings for everyone!
(The sticks holding up the box are the roasting cute!)
They even got the fire going for us with plenty of wood to add later.

The kids had plenty of sunlight to play for a while. hair is pretty much full of sand at this point!

Uncle Nick brought his guitar for some entertainment.

The next morning the kids were up bright and early!
How come they don't get that vacations are meant for sleeping in?

Then off for more beach time.
There was frisbee-playing...

A little bit of working...

Lots of sand play...

Love this next pic...Cale is in mid-air.

Dom was the only one who ventured into the water...

The ladies relaxed...

Finally it was time to head up to our rooms for lunch and rest-time before going to the pool. 

Sorry no pics of the pool...I was in it:)

Later we walked to the store for ice cream.
(Any vacation with Jeff's mom involves walks for ice cream!)

Nick barbeque'd halibut and salmon for dinner. Yumm.

While the kids played with "Bunga."

We played so much all weekend and had a great time.
We are so thankful for Jeff's parents and getting the opportunity to celebrate them, their marriage, and the families the Lord has blessed them with.

Connor drew this picture on the In N' Out box on the way home...

That's the golf cart on the left and our condo on the right.
"Connor is Sad."
Yup. That pretty much sums it up, Buddy!
Hate to see it end.
