A few weeks ago our sweet friends casually invited us to spend the day with them in Laguna Beach.  They had rented John Wayne’s beach house for the week.

Umm…let me think about that.

Yes.

And I’m so glad we did!  Our first official family daycation.  This quaint little cottage was nestled in the sand right below the bluff.

Perfection!

I told Travis I would rather live in a small cottage by the sea than the big houses on the bluff.

Oh how modest I am, right?

Selah had a blast  even though she preferred the kiddie  pool to the  ocean.   And Duke even fell asleep on me a few times.  Success!  Can you believe I forgot my camera?  All images were  captured on my iPhone.

  1. beautiful photos!! David and I have recently decided that in addition to the tiny a frame house of our dreams, we also want to own a little beach cottage with bunk beds, open windows and lots of hammocks to have a place to go and relax as well as have our friends and their families come as well. There’s something that’s always so peaceful about the beach.

  2. Jessica!!! Your pictures….oh how I loved looking through them all. My heart skips a beat every time I see California, especially Laguna Beach. WHAT a deal to get to spend the day there with friends. Next time, invite me. ;)
