Coronado Island

The next day, we headed to Coronado Island. Our first stop was the beach. It was chilly and windy, so we dressed in shorts and long sleeved tops. And can I tell you how much I love our stroller? So many people left their strollers parked by the sidewalk because they couldn't get them through the sand. That was not the case with our Jeep Stroller. With its heavy duty wheels, we glided right over the sand and even listened to music with the speakers that are attached. We love it:) Anyway, Maddox loved the sand and witnessed his first wedding!

It took him a minute to look up at the camera for a picture, he was so enthralled by the sand between his toes.

Mad that I put him on the towel and put his glasses on.

Happy once he was standing up again.

Mum Mums are a lifesaver! Thanks for the tip Renae!

Going to town on his Mum Mum. Enjoying the sun.

Trying to cuddle since it was kind of chilly.

The Pacific Ocean. Next month, we'll be on Myrtle beach playing in the Atlantic Ocean! Lucky kid seeing both sides of the country within one month of each other.

First dip in the ocean, not too bad! He kind of liked it!

Waiting for the next wave to wash up on us.

This one startled him. Poor babe.

My boys playing on the beach.

After hanging out on the beach for a few hours, we decided to change the scene up a bit and strolled down to look at shops and grab some lunch. We found this delicious little Mexican Restaurant, Miguels Patio. Along with the salsa at the beginning of the meal, they also serve a jalapeno white sauce that is to die for! I found the recipe online here but have not tried it yet. I will soon though, and I'll let yall know how it is. Did I mention that we ate Mexican food every day while we were on our trip? It was all sooooooooo good.

Trying to take a self family picture on the streets of Coronado, Maddox got cut off.

Father and son.

After another long day playing and walking in the sun, we headed back to the hotel and took a family nap. We stayed in for the rest of the night, watched a couple of movies and ordered in some pizza.

Playing in our hotel room.

I still have a few more pictures, and a quick story, but we'll save that for another post. I need to go feed Maddox some pears.
