On the way down the trail, our friends were telling us that they have at times seen people walking their goats (yes...GOATS) down on the beach, just like we would walk our dog. Hilarious! Well, what do you think we saw at day on the beach??? Someone walking their GOATS. Not just one, but two! Here is a pic of one of them. They were large goats...taller than my boys. Talk about seeing the unexpected!

Big J thought that the rocks were awesome. He was always 1/2 mile ahead of us exploring the next group of rocks. M-man really liked the tide pools. We saw anemones and lots of other little creatures. The best surprise of the whole day was being able to see whales! Our friends said that it was rare to see them this time of year. They weren't too far off shore, as it was a relatively calm day. We could see them spout and could see the tops of their bodies. Big J even saw their flukes a couple of times. It was a great experience, and so unexpected!

It has been nearly a month since we went to visit family and friends. I guess it's time to blog about it. :) The boys had the opportunity nearly every day we were gone to go swimming, and they took advantage of every moment! Here they are, swimming in Mimi and Grandpa's pool. They swam every day, three times and day, and we had to literally drag them out when it was time to go in. To say they had fun would be an understatement! Good times!
As a mom of boys, every day brings new challenges, as well as moments that just make me laugh. Just the other day, Big J did something that had me laughing the rest of the evening. I had just gotten the boys new toothbrushes at the store. They insist on getting these light-up ones that blink for the minute that they are supposed to be brushing. I like the blinking feature, as it means one less thing that I have to get onto them about. Now, their favorite toothbrush comes with a suction cup on the end. In the eyes of a boy, this is the most awesome feature ever. I've found the toothbrushes stuck to the mirror, the bathtub, and as you can see, the back of the door. The funny (and maybe a little bit devious) thing about this is that for starters, this was his brother's toothbrush, and secondly, it was on the BACK of the door, which means no one could find it. I happened upon it by chance. :) It makes me wonder what kinds of things I can expect in the future!
They came from the Star Wars Folded Flyers book, in case any one wants to know. :)

One last thing. I don't have a picture of it, but on the way home, we crossed over the Foresthill Bridge, which is the highest bridge in California, and one of the highest (conflicting articles say anywhere from the third to the fifth highest) in the U.S. Awesome!
