A day at the beach...

We had an awesome time at the beach on Sunday!  We went to Crystal Cove State Park, and also to Fashion Island.  Here are some highlights:

Cute cottages for rent with a few quaint little businesses.  Relaxing place!  One locally famous part is trudging uphill to the Shake Shack!

We did have a bit of waiting to do.......
 But that gave us time to make flavor decisions.......
 And enjoy the fabulous view!

The wait was worth it, so delcious!  My shake was called the Monkey Flip.  The ingredients:  banana, chocolate, date, and peanut butter!  Sooooooooooo Yum!

After such a cooling and satisfying snack, it was time to hit the shore.

The tide pools were also worth checking out, and we did see a crawler or two....

It was such a wonderful outing!  Although we got even hungrier after all our shore activities....or maybe just feeling too celebratory, but off we went to Fashion Island for California Pizza Kitchen and then last, but definitely not least.....Casey's Cupcakes!

I hope everyone had a delicious and super-fun Mother's Day!!!  ♥
