It must have been a phase
I have been looking on all of your blogs and have noticed a severe decrease in activity for the vast majority. This is okay I suppose, although I really do look forward to seeing what our friends and relatives, both here in Cali and throughout the U.S. are up to. But perhaps it was just a blogging phase that most of you were involved in. You'll have to tell us what your new hobbies are, now that blogging is no longer a part of your lives.
So Nicole is 38 weeks pregnant. Due on the 11th of February. She is severely pregnant and ready to burst. At least she should be. The other day we decided to give some of Savannah's clothes to a couple in our ward who has a daughter younger than our daughter. I stayed in the van with the kids while Nicole carried the clothes up to the door. While she was at the door step, I couldn't help but think that she really only looked maybe 5 or 6 months pregnant. To think that there is a full grown baby inside her and yet she still looks so small, it's amazing. She is still going on her walks most days too. What a good example. Perhaps I should actually follow her example and exercise, but that takes too much effort.
So last week Nicole and I took the kids to the beach two days in a row. The water is really cold, but the weather was great (mid 70's). Savannah and I played in the water a little bit while Mom and Cole played in the sand. We saw some star fish and some sea cucumbers. We discovered a road that leads from Wendy drive in Newburry Park down to the ocean. We found the nicest little secluded beach. It is located by a small sign that simply says, "beach access". There is a small turn off from PCH where you park, then you walk down an old set of stairs that lead down to a small beach, protected by rocks jutting out into the ocean on either side, and steep cliffs in the back drop.
