We love to visit Evan's dad in Marina Del Rey. With the baby coming in a few weeks, we're trying to get in a few trips while we still can. I can't wait until he or she is old enough to come enjoy the beach too!
This is right outside Gary's apartment. He has such an amazing place! We only got about 20 minutes of beach time in with Sonny before beach patrol gave us a warning that no dogs are allowed on any beaches in LA county. Since when? I feel like I see dogs everywhere in LA all the time. Those people who don't pick up after their dogs are ruining it for the rest of us! Crappy.
We drove to Long Beach and walked around. There's a cute park with a pond where you can rent little pedal boats. Evan and I pedaled, Jr steered and Sonny enjoyed the ride.
We went under the bridge to find out what all the commotion was on the other side, and found out there was a Crawfish Festival. I don't really know what Spiderman bouncers, rap music and Mardi Gras booths (in July?) have to do with crawfish... but it looked like fun.
Coffee and snacks on the pier.
Also on the pier: when pelicans attack.
Hope you're having as fun of a summer as we are! :)
