San Clemente

Last weekend we helped Dave surprise my mom at the beach in San Clemente for her birthday. We were waiting on the sand and she didn't know we were there so when Ela ran up and yelled "Surprise" my mom politely said hi and tried to sidestep this unknown little ankle biter. It wasn't until we shouted hello that she realized it was Ela. So funny.
After the shock wore off mom was very happy to see us.
Ela "boodie" boarding with her daddy. She tolerated it once and then wanted to go back to shore. Everytime we asked if she wanted to go again she would say "later."
Digging with Dave. Everytime a wave would come close she would thank grandpa Dave for saving her. After we played we ate dinner on the pier which I forgot to take pictures of but was beautiful. Happy Birthday Mom!

All I can say is lucky.. Dinner on the pier, o I sure wish I could do that again. Sounds like a fun bday for your mom. Ela is a brave little girl boggie boarding.
