On Saturday night we were hanging with the Kaiser's and randomly decided to take a last minute family vacation up to Morro Bay, less than 24 hours later we were having dinner in Santa Barbara on our way up the coast! I love spontaneous trips! We have been trying to plan a trip with our families for a while and noticed that both our calendars were open for the week. Morro Bay is beautiful, its such a rad location to vacation at!

Activities we've done so far include (other than going crazy with our fun kids), visited friends, watched the elephant seals (see the Kaiser's blog), dined on some amazing food, and best of all, we've flown kites!!!










My favorite shot of the day! Love my boys:)






Crazy hair...
