Prepare yourself.

In case you can't hear the dialogue, Miss Kristin asks the Wee One to demonstrate his mad dancing skills.

Growing pains

Yesterday the Big Boy went to summer camp.

His previous experiences with camp had been at his preschool with his Wee brother in tow.

Familiar faces, familiar place.

This time, however. Big Boy entered a world of young camp counselors in neon t-shirts.

He played games and had a swimming lesson.

I packed him a lunch.

At the end of the day, I got a fairly good report from the neon clad staff.

"You got him in the pool?" I say, incredulously.

"He didn't want to at first, but he did." says lovely counselor.

Oh, proud, proud mama.

Photo bombed by Wee bro.

I love it when Hubs dumps his iphone photos onto the computer. 

I get to see life from a daddy's eye view. 

Happy Monday :)

Better late than never

Just realized I never blogged about July 4th.

Two small boys + sparklers = too good not to share

So proud of himself. 

I blow it out.

Bleh. Smoke.

Whether I am packing up the car before we head to the Cape or packing a bag and a cooler for a day at the beach - it's always the same:

Pack ALL the things!! 
Once we're there, I sigh and shake my head.

I wear only my most comfortable clothes and flip flops.

The kids only need a few shovels and pails.

Study for my Pilates training? Please. But, still, I lug the textbooks around.

Wonder if I'll ever learn?

A Gift from the Sea

Every year during our sojourn at Cape Cod, I read the same book: A Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh .

If you've never read it - I highly recommend you take the time - it's very brief.

It's about life and relationships and each year a different passage seems to speak to my soul.

Insert Baywatch theme here.

Happy Tuesday!

We're back!

Oh I have many, many things to say about our little beach vacation, but real life is clamoring all around me this morning.

It is Monday, after all.

So a few photos will have to do - with the hopes that I'll have time for a more thoughtful post later this week.

Happy Monday!
