We stayed in and ordered Thai food on New Year's Eve so we could watch the big Michigan State playoff game for the national championship. Unfortunately the game didn't play out so well, but we sure had fun cheering on our Spartans this season. The best part about living on the west coast is we could watch the ball drop at 9pm, light some sparklers and call it a night.
The sparklers gave the boys a second wind and before we knew it they were parading around in all sorts of inventive costumes. We needed some light entertainment after that disappointing football game.
We rang in the new year at everyone's favorite place.
I'm not sure why we bother bringing sand toys to the beach because the boys always prefer to play with nature's souvenirs.
It was a little chilly but I don't think I'll ever get over being able to go to the beach on New Year's Day. Here's to another year of spending holidays at the ocean...
