First stop - IHOP. Wow, it had been a while since we last went. Everything on the menu was calling our name. =]
This is the face I got when I asked her how happy she was that daddy had the day off with us.
Yours truly, enjoying a cup of joe.
What? We like taking pictures...of food...and people...and well, everything.
These two are great buddies. Makes me so happy. Breakfast is done...let's hit the freeway and head out to Santa Monica. Should take us about an hour.
Surprised the kids with some Pop Rocks on the way for diversion. Remember these? They're still just as much fun as ever.
We drove past the Santa Monica Pier toward Malibu because we saw that the beach was open and empty except for one real well-known section that was filled with surfers. We wanted to find a place to pull over and let the kids go down to explore. It was the perfect day...
Here we are...the kids would stay dry for another 24 seconds after this picture was taken. Oh, well. It was fun.
