We were fortunate because we had "Dadda" all weekend long. Two whole days to have him all to ourselves! Unheard of during the summer around here. We debated for a little bit about what we really wanted to do on Saturday but ended up deciding on a trip to one of our favorite beaches. And I am so glad we did. It's something we'd like to do every single summer with the kids, even if just for the day, and it's been amazing to see how much they have changed since each year and how they enjoy it more and more. I also have to admit that not once but twice I got a little choked up thinking about how nice it was to just grab two sippy cups and the diaper bag and go. No fuss. No medical/feeding supplies, no "baby" stuff, just us. Not having to worry about where the nearest ER was that could handle a feeding tube mishap. No worries. And then again when we sat in one of our favorite restaurants and remembered how on their very first trip to the beach, they weren't even eating big people food yet! This time they even asked for "Peeza and fries".
|Can you believe it... then & now - What a difference 2 years makes.|
Sunday we did absolutely nothing. Ok well not true. We both did some yard work and cleaned the garage, but other then that we just hung around the house and enjoyed playing with the kiddos. I am sure hubby enjoyed relaxing before returning to work today.
Here's a few photo's from our Adventure.
|Addison's First Sea Shell Find!!!! I can't wait to help her decorate it for a souvenir.|
|I absolutely love this one. Jake snapped this one while we were playing in the water. She loved loved the waves!|
|Blake on the other hand thought the water was a bit too chilly but loved the sand.|
|And we couldn't help it, we HAD to get an old time photo done. How stinking cute is this!|
