We spent many a day at the beach in Malibu. Just to sit on the sand and soak up some salt air and sunshine was such a wonderful treat. The boys had a wonderful time, as was expected, and my sister and I enjoyed our picnic lunches and some time in the water as well. We also tried our hand at paddle boarding which is amazing! No pictures of us on the paddle boards though as my camera is not waterproof and I hadn’t thought ahead to purchase a disposable waterproof camera.
Boys enjoying the surf! Nothing better than being a kid at the beach.
My sister made the most delicious picnic lunch on our last day at the beach. We had a few uninvited guests try to sneak in on the feast. Three of the most brash party crashers are pictured above.
Anyway, back to the food…..fresh salsa & chips (the boys favorite), turkey sandwiches with a yummy chipotle mayo – cut into quarters, and a broccoli salad. Everything was completely wonderful. I will post the recipe for the chipotle mayo – it had just enough zing that even Morgan (my youngest) was able to eat it. He usually does not like spicy food, or green food, the list goes on and on. It is actually quite a challenge to get him to eat anything beyond mashed potatoes, chicken nuggets *shudder*, plain hamburgers or chips & salsa. I am hopeful that he will outgrow this soon.
