Hot day at the beach

We went to the beach in Malibu again this weekend. Unlike last week, the weather was warm, make that hot! Summer time hot.

Mackenzie did her usual beach rounds: chasing birds, going for a dip in the ocean, etc. Mikaela was braver this week and even went into the water. We had a picnic on the beach and I even packed a thermos of tea... It was chilly last week!

Once the weather got too hot, Mackenzie dug a hole in the send and we helped them create a doggy heat-busting habitat. Mikaela was so happy to share an activity with her big sister.

1. Dug hole in sand to cool off
2. Got humans to use beach towels as sun shields
3. Portable hydration device in proximity

J also made a puppy shelter for Mikaela while she had her post-lunch nap. We left the beach earlier than planned. Mikaela was content to stay at the beach given her shaded napping spot. However the humans were baking in the sun and so we left.
