Newport Beach

A few weeks ago, we rented a house with 4 other families (all guys who did the MBA program with Jeremy). I think there were 12 kids, all under age 6. The beach was so nice, even though I hardly got in the water. I like it to be at least 90 degrees outside when I swim. It was in the low 80's most of the time we were there, but that didn't stop the kids from playing in the water for hours on end. They got pretty fried, but never complained.
The last night we were there, Riggs was begging to ride the Ferris Wheel. So we did--and I got sick. The things you do for your kids...

The kids had this volleyball that they threw out into the ocean over and over to watch the waves bring it back up. This is what they did for like 90% of the time we were there.

There was a little park right on the beach that we went to one day. Crew especially enjoyed this.

This is one of my favorite pictures of these 2. Jackson is so sweet to Crew.
Can you tell that putting their arms around each other was not their idea?

We walked out to the end of the pier one night and got shakes at Ruby's Everyone loved it--that is--everyone except for Crew. Look at that face!
What the?

I told them to put their heads down by Crew for the picture. Love it.

We rented this "bike" one morning and rode around for an hour. We even took it on the little Ferry over to Balboa Island. Jeremy and I were both too tall for it.
