The Red House at Stinson Beach

We just got back from a week long vacation to the Bay Area with my family!
We started out spending four days at Stinson Beach, which is about an hour outside of San Francisco. It's a tiny little town (pop. 450) and this week at least, it wasn't crowded at all. It was foggy/rainy the first two days and then it cleared up and was bright and sunny.

We all stayed in this charming beach house at Stinson Beach. It was right at the end of the street on the beach--so nice to be able to just walk right out onto the sand whenever we wanted to!

The house was perfect for foggy days--cuddling up by the fireplace and reading, playing board games, and watching really great Netflix movies (Paranormal Activity 3 and 2012: Ice Age--I really recommend the second one. Like, really. If you want to see the funniest movie ever made, set aside 2 hours and watch it)

Juno was wiped out at the end of each day and she fell asleep at the dinner table several times.

Tempe lost a tooth at the beach and the tooth fairy paid her with a sand dollar instead of a real dollar!

Playing ocean bingo with Grandma Lisa....

Jeff, Kelsey, and Tyler playing Bento. Never heard of Bento? It's a game my Uncle Karl designed and made and it's a favorite at Crandall family reunions!
