One Saturday my mom's good friends Luis and Lynn invited us to their beach house for the day. The kids took early naps and we headed to their place in the afternoon.
Here we are at the beach while we waited for our fish to get fried and ready to take to our friend's house.
Luis was a great "babysitter" while we were there and very much enjoyed the kids.
We got the kids in their swim suites and enjoyed the sand and ocean.
I stayed on the beach, but Oma was a happy companion to my little ones.
Late in the afternoon we got to see the fishermen come in with their bounty. It was such a fun experience. We happened to be there during the two-week period where fishing for sea cucumber was allowed, so that was fun to watch in itself. As the fishermen got off, there was a truck on the beach with a large scale where the buyers were ready to purchase their goods.
We got to sit around the table with our friends afterwards and enjoy whole fried fish for dinner. The best part about the meal for the kids was eating the fresh corn tortillas.
At one point during dinner time the kids started to "play" musical chairs. And then I caught my boys loving on each other while they shared one chair.
And then as the day was coming to a close, the kids asked if there were any books to read. Here is my lovely girly-girl engrossed in a magazine Lynn and Luis gave her. What was funny was that as we were saying goodbye, the kids just walked out with the books, expecting to be able to take them home :)
And here is my mom with her best friend Lynn. Right before I took this picture they were arguing with each other about who was going to keep the most food (No, YOU keep the food. No, YOU keep the food). Every since I was young, I have memories of these two ladies arguing about who's going to wash the dishes, who's going to keep the most food, amiga this, and amiga that, and I love you amiga, and thank you amiga.
Thank you for your hospitality.
The kids were wiped out by the time we got home.
