Vasquez Rocks

Last Saturday we went with the Browers to Vasquez Rocks. Matt has been wanting to take the boys there forever and we finally got to go. It was raining that day so I was super excited to get to finally feel some rain on my face (since it literally only rains in Long Beach in the early a.m. before I get up, much to my dismay.)

The first spout of rain happened not soon after we left the van, so we all hopped back in while it passed by. The new rain left enough water for a mini flash flood and since it's all rocks and sand it formed great little waterfalls and rivers for the kids to play in.

From then on out we just played around and took shelter under rocks for the brief spurts of rain that came and went. I wish I could have bottled the freshly wet rock and juniper scents that we got to enjoy that afternoon.

I love your pictures, Anne. You have a good eye , especially for angles. That looks like a fun trip. I'm jealous of all your friends outings. Maybe it's time I try and copy you a little.

How fun! And don't you just love the smell of rain? (but then that's coming from a girl in the desert.) It looks like you came prepared--bringing boats to sail, way to go mom!
