What you do when you tell your mama you want to bring *all the things* to the beach and she says, “Sure! But you have to lug it yourself.”

Despite a wicked headwind she made it the 2 miles to the beach. *All the things* were used at the beach and the trip home took half as long with the wind at our backs. I was really proud of Catherine for finding a solution, packing and gearing up herself and pushing through when she was tired and frustrated. Life lessons all around!

Mount Esme

This rare photograph was snapped just minutes before the dormant Mount Esme erupted, blowing the top of the mountain off and leaving just a crater behind. All local residents were able to escape sudden doom.
