The Other Coast

We grew up on the West Coast, spent some time on the East Coast and now we are experiencing 'the other coast.' As long as we aren't land-locked I think we can survive. Who would have known that Texas has beaches and sometimes even real surf ! It is definitely different than the real coasts though. The water is way warm (currently in the mid-eighties) and as you can see in the picture, you can park wherever you want ! It is kind of chaotic to have cars parked and driving wherever and doesn't seem the most environmentally friendly thing but it definitely has its advantages- beats hauling all your junk a half a mile across the sand and if your kid falls asleep on the way to the beach you can just roll down the windows and let them snooze away because your car is right there next to you ! We love family beach days and this will be a great place for the little guys to learn to surf !

Hey impressive. True surfers! I wish we were near a body of water. Want an expansive tree line? You're welcome anytime :)

Look at Christian! That's awesome! Ok, you guys are such beach-goers and I so am not. I guess that's what happens when you grow up in Utah. I'll do my best in Miami. Although I have this sinking suspicion I will be like, ew, sand in my butt? Can we just go to the pool? But man, a drive-up beach - that's what I need. I told Ryan I wanted to live on the beach - just to avoid the dragging your crap and your kids part - but I'm sure it will be too expensive. And too hurricaine-y.

Hey Shawna,
This is Kristi Rondo... that is so cute! They need to get as much exposure to the beach as possible so when you bring them back to the real thing they won't be too far behind the curve:) Love you guys!

That is too cute! How great that you have a beach to go to. Now when you come back to the real thing they won't be too far behind the curve:)

Love to see the boys out there with their Dad doing good exercise. Shane promise Grammie that you will try to be careful, so you are not a statistic of an accident or worse dead. We love you too much and want you to serve a mission, be a scout, a teenager, graduate from some college and have a cute family like yours.

Love,
Grammie
