Soccer Sunday...

Grey is playing in a winter soccer league.  So last Sunday we got to
go watch a game.
Before every game they have a practice session with the parents...

Can never have enough water...

Sissy girl is maybe a future player too!
Yes, we really love soccer!

San Clemente Sports Park...

This weekend was the opening of the new San Clemente Sports Park.
We drove around the baseball, football and soccer fields.
We got to go inside the Aquatics park because the grands were there swimming with
It's beautiful.  A kiddie pool with mid 80 degree water and a fun water feature.
A huge pool with lots of swim lanes and very bouncy diving boards.

Apparently Target stepped up and put in the $$$ to actually get it built
after years of talk.   It helps that it's right across the street from the new San Clemente
Target store.  Whatever it took to get it built was worth's a real
win/win for the families of San Clemente.

Juanitas Taco Shop...

Saturday we stopped at a place we went to 
25 years ago....Juanitas Taco Shop,
(remember Steve, Kathy, Maddy & Bob?)
This place hasn't changed in all those years!
We were so glad that the food hadn't changed either.

Hubby had the fish tacos

the machaca burrito was to die for (a lot like El Palenque in Wahiawa)
Juanitas worth the trip to Leucadia, California

T-Street deja vu

 snack, board, wetsuit and towels put into the car
Pick up at school.  Took the same route I'd driven
thousands of times.
Changing in the car.
watching countless waves.
Staying until sunset...
Somethings just don't change

it all continues.

Happy President's Day!

I can still remember when there wasn't a President's Day, just Washington's Birthday
and Lincolns Birthday!

Crab Cooker

Hubby and I went to brunch the other day at one of our favorite restaurants.
I hadn't been there for years, but ever since hubby had mentioned that he'd gone there for lunch
a few months ago, I'd been thinking about it.
Yes, it was just as good as I remembered it.
Manhattan Clam Chowder

grilled Mahi with coleslaw and potatoes,

shrimp and scallops...YUM!

We love fish and love this place!

I took a little drive down by T-Street yesterday morning.
It was really clear because of a storm that had passed through the night before.
The surf P.E. classes were gone so there really was only 1 guy out
and another one just getting there.
Lots of people walking the beach trail.
