We tried to meet up with one of Kaiya's school friends in Santa Cruz to hang out at the beach but it was way too crowded and we could't find them. We instead found a separate spot to hang out with the kids. Kaiya had a blast playing with the waves and Austin enjoyed building things with the sand. He was actually the most fascinated with watching the sand absorb all the water he kept fetching from the ocean. The weather was gorgeous. We're so lucky that we live so close to all of this.
