On Sept 11th we left on one of our favorite vacations...Carpinteria! We always have such a great time and make great memories. We were the first to arrive and Mia was having a blast checking out the water!

Mia in my little sand eater!! Luckily it isn't handfuls and handfuls but still!

LOVE these three and love that they love the beach as much as we do!!

The kids were SO anxious to get in the water and Daddy is always happy to take them!

The kids were excited to have Claire make it!

I don't even tell Ellie to pose =)

Going to the train station now is a MUST for the kids but mainly Cayden. We always check the schedule so we know when an Amtrak will be coming in..

The next morning the train station was our first stop..

The kids love finding all of the smashed coins, we are getting a nice little collection!

After the train station we headed into town...

our trip just wouldn't be the same without stopping at our favorite candy shop

this picture cracks me up! She was just in her own little happy place playing in the sand..

While Mia took a nap Mike and I took a nice long walk with our sweet Ellie. This trip we were having so much fun collecting shells and we found some really pretty ones..

Unfortunately the weather was not the greatest so Daddy gave up his sweater to keep Ellie warm..

We headed into town for The Spot..

And of course catch another train!!

The kids had one last request to bury a deep hole...and then just like that our trip was over. Its always so hard to leave but we always get to look forward to next year!!!
