Carlsbad in June

For nearly 50 years now, Grandma Diane and Grandpa John (Bickmore) have come down to camp at Carlsbad beach for one week during the summer.  Usually they bring down one of their two silver-covered Airstream Trailers, hitched up to their white suburban.  This year, they've down-sized to just tent camping because it's getting harder for my nearly 80-year-old grandfather to hitch and unhitch the trailer by himself.  
They came for a week in June this year and also this past week (in July).  So now that I'm finally playing catch-up with my blog, we'll start with the pictures from the June trip.  The night we came up, they treated us to some yummy pizza...
Walked along the beach with Pip, Jeff, and Lilly...

roasted marshmallows,  
and played a couple rounds of Aggravation.  Notice Brooklyn's make-shift wrap-around skirt as a result of her sand-crusted and salt-water-drenched pants, socks, and shoes after our walk.
