I decided we needed a change of scenery today and since it was not raining, I decided to take the boys to the beach. There is a rest stop on the top of the coast range where we usually stop, since the coffee kicks in around there. The roads are clear, but there is a lot of snow in the mountians. We were not dressed for snow, but we explored for a few minutes. It was above freezing, so it was not as cold as it looked. We did turn the heat up in when we returned to the van. I baked a spice cake yesturday and brought some with us today. Christian ate his on the beach. The boys had fun playing on the beach. The high point was digging a big hole and placing rocks around the edge of the hole. I played around with the Macro setting on my camera today.
