About an hour's drive north of the Golden Gate bridge gets you to Point Reyes National Seashore. Miles of beaches and some lovely camping were the highlights for us, but there is plenty more to explore. Cassia pretty much squealed with delight every time her dad had to run away from a wave.
Getting ready for the two mile hike to the campsite.
I carried all the children and James got the rest of the camping gear, which surprisingly fit into one backpack, despite the fact that we finally bought a 4-person family tent.
Mind blown by the size of the sandbox at the beach.
I was trying to capture how small C's footprints are next to mine, but instead I discovered that she really does have her dad's genes for footsize.
Belly and toes
Getting buried proved very popular.
Getting ready for the hike back with "Tiny Little Baby" attached in the baby carrier.
Unfortunately we lingered at the beach too long and forgot to pack a lunch for day two. So at this point we knew that we would not make it back to the car without a full-blown melt down. We were right, but it was worth it.
