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!
This particularly pretty flower caught my eye tonight while on our after dinner walk.
I was asked to take this picture so that Catherine could text it to a friend. I’m always happy to oblige! (Though I did have to pull over to snap it!)
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.
Back where she belongs, in the water at First Bridge.
Dresses + the ferry = a great photo opportunity!
And this, my friends, is just one reason why leggings (short or long) are required items around these two!
Encouraged by my children, I purchased these pjs. According to the girls, “they are perfect for you. Cute campers and puns!!”
I have a growing laundry list of things to get done in the next day or two. So, clearly, the best place to be today was the planetarium.
Keens drying on the back step? Must be summer!
