Spring Break '11

Last week Ryan took Ben and Alex camping on Monday and Tuesday with the Young Men. They got home Tuesday night. We unpacked, repacked, and left Wednesday morning for our annual camping trip to San Onofre with a bunch of friends from Saugus. It was lots of fun, as usual, and so fun to see everyone. The weather wasn't the greatest for the beach. Thursday it was cold, cloudy, and windy, but Friday we had more sun. Enough for Ryan, Ben, and Alex to all get in the water and surf. Alex got a pretty gnarly scrape on his leg. I asked him if he gets tired of always being the one to get injured on our family trips.
Despite a week full of camping, Alex never got sick of smores. One night he had a triple decker. We tried some with peanut butter cups instead of chocolate. They were good, but I prefer the classic version.
Ryan got to tell lots of stories around the fire, and Ben even got to tell a ghost story. I didn't get to hear it but everyone who did was impressed. He had been practicing.
Charlie was thrilled to see some of his friends who we hadn't seen since we moved.

I have video of the boys surfing that I'll try to put up later.
