Mitt Romney: Easter Vacation of Boogie Boarding, Egg Painting at California Beach Home [PHOTOS]

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney had a relaxing Easter this past weekend at his California beach home, dabbling in a bit of boogie boarding, Easter egg painting and tag with the kids as seen in photos that have been passed around on the Internet.

Romney spent his four-day weekend at his luxe beachfront home in a beach community in La Jolla, California, which he purchased in 2008 for $12 million. The three bedroom, 3,000 square foot home owned by the Romney -- in addition to a lakefront home in New Hampshire and a condo in Boston - was once referred to as pretty small by Josh Romney, as reported by the Los Angeles Times. The New York Times reported earlier that Romney had plans to renovate the home, to include an outdoor shower, four-car garage and 3,600-square-foot basement.

The internet was abuzz with updates from the Romney family vacation over the weekend, as the Romney campaign posted a photo on Instagram of Mitt and Ann Romney coloring Easter eggs with their grandchildren.

The photos did not stop there. Another photo was posted on Reddit of a sun-kissed Romney wearing a wet suit while boogie boarding with son Matt.

While Secret Service agents guarded each end of the block where the house is located in addition to a trailer in the front, Romney and his sons and grandchildren played tag on the lawn next to the La Jolla home as a videographer captured the scene on video, according to the LA Times.
