California Vacation | Newport Beach | Day 2

On the 4th of July we headed to a local pancake joint called Pancakes R Us. I HIGHLY recommend this place. The owner is from Afganistan and has an amazing story that is told through articles that are hung on the walls of his restaurant.  Their breakfast food is fantastic and the best part... they serve gluten free pancakes.  I was in love and I ate a ton before heading to the beach in my bathing suit :o/.

Here are some of our beach photos in no particular order...


Aiyana and I hanging out on the beach...


Aiyana on one of her many trips to the ocean to get water for their sand castles.




Clara & I posing for the camera...




Love Clara's smile :o)



Playing in the sand...




More water...


This photo doesn't even do justice to the amount of people that were on the beach on the 4th.  It was packed, but not so bad that you couldn't enjoy yourself.


The girls also had Dana making trips to get water...








Our spot on the beach...










After spending the day at the beach we headed to the hotel to clean up and get some pizza.

The girls being silly...



All of us... not the best picture, but that's what you get when you ask a stranger to snap a photo with something besides a cell phone these days.


After we ate we were so tired.  So we headed back to the hotel hoping that we could see some fireworks from the balcony. We could, but it wasn't a spectacular view.  We all slept really well that night.
