Ella wasn't keen on going into the water. But that's okay--we were content to watch from a distance.
Around dinnertime, we built a fire.
The next morning, like nearly every other morning, the kids came up the stairs to our studio apartment and jumped on the bed. Really, I think one of the main reasons is so they can get a little extra screen time. But we're not complaining.

Aaron, Christa and the kids headed home. Mark and I headed to the Kon Tiki Inn in Pismo for another couple of days.
