Ever since I was a little girl I’ve always loved the beach. The sound of the waves crashing, children splashing, the warmth of the sun, and the smell of the ocean water. Even the annoying seagulls that are always hovering over us trying to find scraps of food. On this particular day we decided to head over to Crystal Cove in Newport Beach. It was just pure heaven. Its clean and not that crowded, at least not on the day we went. The kids loved it. My mother-in-law and I spent most of our time under the umbrella just chatting away and snapping pictures of everyone. The kids and their uncle Kelvin tried body boarding but the water was just to dang cold.
