Our Santa Cruz Vacation part 1


This dog can seriously teach us a thing or two about relaxing. I was lucky she even bothered to make eye contact with me for this photo.

We rented a little beach house in Santa Cruz for a week for summer vacation. Shelby got into the swing of things right away.


It took a little while for Vin to get over the excitement and curiosity of being in a new place, but being a toddler, fatigue will eventually catch up to you, and here is Shelby by his side as he passed out while watching a Monster Jam DVD.


I can't tell you how many times we heard the phrase "I want to go to the beach!" Vin also created a new song (it's more of a rap)

Shovel Shovel Shovel

I want to dig some holes

Shovel Shovel Shovel

I want to dig some holes

(repeat...like...20 times. Kinda explains the look on Shelby's face, doesn't it?)

It's amazing the positions kids can fall asleep in.

Poor Shelby is looking a bit glazed over. She'd probably rather hear

"Treats Treats Treats
Shelby needs some treats"
