Beachin’ it!

We took our first trip to the beach today! Well, the lake anyway. Welcome summer! I have lots to say and lots of photos, but it’s late (again) and I’m tired (always) so this will be brief.

Eve and I picked Lex up after school and we went straight to the beach. First things first, snack!


Happy children!

Tired children, heading home for dinner and baths.

I was playing with camera settings and “continuous” photo shoots. I have lots to say about that. Also I’ve been thinking a lot about the seasons of parenting. Thoughts on that. Right now I’m tired though. I can’t wait for summer vacation. I’m really, truly excited for it. Possibly more so than the kids :)


I just linked this post to a blog hop (my first!) from another local blogger, Rub Some Dirt On It. I don’t know her, but I know lots of the local areas she talks about. She’s super crafty and into photography… I’d love to take some of the e-courses she has taken.

  1. Thanks for being one of the first to join my blog hop!! What a special day, and tired kids at the end is even better! Looks like you have a fun summer ahead of you! Hope to see you back next week!

  2. Great photos make great memories. I love their hats!! My kids always had cute little hats and now they just laugh when we roll out the photos! I can’t wait for summer either!! I am with you on being more excited than the kids.

    I hope you enjoy the summer and get much needed rest!
