A lot of people in Arizona hate California: there's too many laws, too many liberals, too many taxes, gas is too expensive, houses are too expensive, the weather is always being better than our weather, you can't just go out and shoot guns wherever, etc. However, as much as Arizonans complain about California, everybody loves the beach. Everybody.
I love California and I can't wait to move back there (someday), and I especially love the beach. While we were there, my stepmother graciously offered to accompany me to Little Corona.
This allowed us to have a completely stress-free trip because I didn't have to cart everyone to the bathrooms every 10 minutes, just one kid at a time.
They are finally reaching an age where they are starting to realize that the long-sleeved swim shirts are uncool. Too bad. They will wear them until they are old enough to do a reasonably good job applying their own sunscreen. So... college?
Thank you, Jeri for making this moment possible.
