carpinteria 2009.....

2 weeks ago we had our final vacation of the summer (school started too early this year!!). we had our annual carpinteria camping trip. we went w/ 12 other families and had a blast. it was a little colder this year, actually the sun barely came out. but that didn't stop us from having a great time. it even gave us a chance to do other things besides just hanging on the beach.
one of the semi- warm days. the weather never stopped the boys from going in the water and having fun with all their friends.

our friends brought a raft for the kids to play with in the water. sad thing is it broke on the third day :(

seth set up a game called "flags" for all the kids to play. isaiah was the reigning champion. all the kids had a blast playing.

some of the girls on our trip. true friends :)

we have a tradition one night out the week where we all ride into town and get ice cream. it is quite a scene since there are about 60 of us!!

in the mornings hayden would go to the visitor center and participate in jr. rangers. it was a free hour long program where they would have a little lesson and do a craft. he loved it.
like i said earlier, the weather never stopped the boys from enjoying the water, but when they got out they were freezing cold .

on our last night the sun finally came out!! we all ran down to the beach to enjoy the sunset and to get some pictures.

i love this family pic w. the sun setting in the background..

about half the kids on the lifeguard tower on our final night :)

can't wait until next year....
