This place is gorgeous with the ocean cliffs, huge waves, and beautiful wildflowers. I never get tired of coming here.
It was a little wet after the rains this past month. But the kids loved playing in the mud. They kept calling it the icky sticky mud. You can see my adventurous messy little girl jumping in the mud while her cleanly best friend Emma is knelt down, crying out in horror. I love how different their personalities are!!
Messy best friends!!

So we decided to take a trip with the kids.
First stop: the fattiesNext: Cambria for some pie. No antiques and tea for us this trip. But the pie and hot chocolate was amazing and clearly Abbey loved her present pastry.
And on the way home there was a surprise...zebras!!! Yes I said it, zebras. There are zebras that live on the Hearst Castle property so very once and awhile you can see them from the road. But this day we could almost touch them. So fun!!See, Davey was excited! He is ecstatic over the zebras.
And in Abbey fashion she showed her excited too!!
Just another fun day on the central coast.

Here is the recipe:
(Makes approximately 5 cups)
2 cups (finely) grated castile soap*
1 cup borax
1 cup baking soda
1 cup soda ash (washing soda)
*(we used Dr. Bronners. Half peppermint half plain. Next we will try lavender.)
2TBS per load.
It isn't the same as the regular detergent but so far it is working the best out of everything I have tried. Especially if I spray the stain with a little oxy clean before a wash. It is super easy to make and Abbey loved helping so give it a try and let me know what you think.
