Yes, I did pay $12 for 2 glasses of OJ but to my defense, the prices of OJ were not published on the menu… ah, I should have known when the oatmeal was $8! Ha!

Daddy had some business in Santa Monica for a couple of days so naturally, the girls and I tagged along. We didn’t want to be away from him, even for a couple of days. Plus, any opportunity to be near the ocean is one we’ll always take.

We had originally booked a hotel room but decided to rent a little cottage, just steps from beach instead. The girls loved the little house and enjoyed all the walking and exploration.

Girls’ favorite activity today: BEACHCOMBING!
