last weekend we went to avila beach for the afternoon.

it was the first day of spring break and the weather was so beautiful! about 85*!

{isn’t that aqua cottage so cute?!}

someone was having a celebration–we weren’t invited, but i loved the paper lanterns!

it was making me long for summer!

and more free time.

more time to play and feel the sun on my shoulders.

and lounge under an umbrella near the water. that sounds like heaven!

and ice cream. both steve and i choose cookie dough. david likes berry {non-diary} and matthias likes rainbow sherbert.

matthias and david would like to know–what’s your favorite kind of ice cream?
