Spring Break '14 Day 1

 California has been good to us.  
The Little Nie's woke up super early and ran straight to the ocean.
Lottie was still in diaper.
{I was taking this photo in my nightie}. 
All day the Little Nies collected shells, rocks, and dead lobsters.
We laid them out on the table, looked over them 
and then threw them back into the ocean.  
I sure enjoyed the sun, the sounds of the waves, and relaxing with my family.
We plan on doing the same thing today.
We are so thankful for our friends who invited us to their gorgeous 
home here in La Jolla.  Wow!
 We broke for lunch at Whaoo's.  Yum. Fish. Tacos.
After naps and later that evening we took the Little Nie's 
Oh my goodness gracious.  
The temple is gorgeous and I cried the second we entered the grounds.
Last time I was here, we were at a wedding, and we towed the AuroraMark down.
Mr. Nielson and I stayed in the boat on the dock. 
 It was pretty cozy and romantic.
I felt so much peace and comfort, especially since I have been so frustrated 
(see HERE).
Meanwhile, this is still happening:
