summer break week #6

My husband was on vacation, so it was busier than usual  (in a good way) this week. That's also why I wasn't around much.
On day 26 of my daughters' summer break, we went to Laguna Beach.

We try to go to Laguna Beach every summer.  We usually have lunch, play in the waves, and make sand mermaids.

On day 27, Jesse and my brother-in-law Oscar took my daughters to watch a reptile show at the library.

My littlest volunteered to go on stage.  She held a tortoise.  My other daughters also volunteered, and they held a snake.
On day 28, we headed to the mall.  One of my daughters still had some birthday money leftover; she used it to buy a make-up kit, rings, and earrings, all which she shared with her sisters.  (They've been wearing crazy eyeshadow lately.  They also threw pennies into the fountain, which they always enjoy.
Later that evening, Jesse took them to the park to fly their kites.  They got the kites as reading rewards at the library.  My oldest chose a book and beach ball this week.  She still flew kites with them though.

On day 30, I had them make a cake (similar to this one), so we could have it for lunch the next day.
