nicolaus got a surfboard for his birthday, so we figured it was the perfect excuse to visit his hometown - newbury park, california. we've made this trip so many times, but i was a bit nervous to do it with a baby in tow. turns out, there was no need to worry! niels is an excellent traveler. it made things go a bit slower, but he loves his car seat and slept for most of the drive. plus there is nothing cuter than babies at the beach and i loooooved hanging out with niels there.
our friends tanner and nicole flew down and met us for about half of the trip. which mostly consisted of the beach, eating donuts, hot tubbing and catching up with good friends. needless to say, it was a good time.
