Summer Update...


Beach, beach, beach - whether it be a rocky shore, ocean with big dunes, gentle bays and mellow ponds - summer is definately a time to enjoy the water! Cook-outs, watermelon, hulla hoops, minature golf, 4th of July parade - and a tailgate picnic in the car with one of my sister's dogs! Cousins, have I mentioned playing with the cousins? Lots and lots of cousins. Combine all this with my normal day-to-day stuff (my paperwork piles are a bit never-ending, especially in the summer) and everything else that goes on around here - and I am having a very busy summer! If you have trouble seeing the photo collage - double click on it to enlarge!

On going to the beach... Sunscreen, sunshirt, sunglasses, sunhat, bug spray, dry clothes, snacks, water bottles, coolers, beach chairs, towels, beach toys - the list does seem a bit daunting, but once I get it all lugged down to the beach it is pure bliss - until it is time to manage getting it all back UP the dune! My car is starting to think it is some sort of special hybrid - part beach - there is so much sand in there!

I am very tired and have various aches and pains, but 2 doctors appointments have ruled out anything very serious (which is, of course, very good news), but I am hoping that I get my energy back soon. In the meantime, I suppose my Little Boy has enough energy for the 2 of us combined!

What lovely summer pictures! You are quite obviously having a wonderful time. Sorry you've been so tired - take some time to rest ... well, as much as you're allowed to with an active little boy.

Gail said...

Oh my, how BIG he has gotten since the last time you posted pictures. Hope you get some rest and enjoy the remainder of the summer.

I have to agree, when I saw LB's photos...I thought, oh my, he's become huge! not so little anymore...these babies just insist on growing up. looks like the perfect summer to me-hope you are feeling "back to normal" soon! no energy is not fun at all...

Is that you boy in the middle or a cousin? (It has been a while...)

Mama Koch said...

Little boys, sticky fingers and lots of sand! Oh, the memories you're making with him. Sounds like lots of fun.

Hope you're feeling better. Not that we're overworking, now are we?!

Sorry to hear you are a little under the weather. That is frustrating when there's so much to do! Hope you are back on track soon! Other than that, it sounds like a fantastic summer. I hope they checked you for Lyme disease. My BIL had that once.

I'm a little behind on my reading..LOL..but wanted to tell you that I think you are going to have to change Little Boy's name! :) He has grown so much and is getting so handsome! Take it easy girl..take time to relax a bit and take care of yourself. I know, easier said than done with a child! And you are such a good Mom. Hope you are feeling back to your old self soon.
