Beaches and Burritos

Another beautiful day in sunny California. August is the perfect time to visit. We know not to come out here during "June Gloom." Yesterday, Eric, Krista, Ryan and I took a cooler full of drinks and snacks and plopped our chairs in the sand and sat there for 4 or 5 hours. Mark and Maysen were at beach camp just a lifeguard tower away. We were able to see them playing games and jumping in the waves.

Every time we come out here Eric and I eat at THE best Mexican restaurant - El Sombrero - which has been around since I was a kid. There are two of them, but the main one in downtown Manhattan Beach was destroyed by a fire last year and it will finally be re-opening in about a month. Anyhoo, we've been here for two days and have eaten at El Sombrero twice. The Mexican restaurants in Missouri don't compare at all to those in California.

Today we are going to my mom's to get her up and about, maybe go to her condo pool, and then later take her to Mark's baseball game. I'm having sports withdrawals so I need to go to a game, even if it's 7-year-olds. Gotta have my sports, and it's not often that I get to see Mark play.

That's it for now!
