Beach

Today we went with my parents to East Harbor Beach. What a nice day to sit and relax, well for everyone else, while I was chasing Ethan all over the place and getting soooo sunburned. There were daddy long legs ALL OVER the place, yuck! Horse flies were biting us, and ladybugs all over. Ethan even tried to eat one! I had a great time watching the kids enjoy themselves. Ethan was so good. He had such a great time being able to wonder all over. I asked him if this was the funnest day of his life and he answered "UH" I think that means YES. He ate about a cup of sand throughout the day. I think he thought it might taste better each time he tried...he always realized he was wrong, making the weirdest faces!
Day by day I enjoy my children more and more. I love just watching them discover and learn. I need to enjoy every moment I can with my Merci, now that she is gone every day. I love you Ethan and Merci.

Sharing water with Grandma!

Happy little boy

Donna, you have a gift of making me want to do more fun things with my kids. It looks like Ethan and Merci had an incredibly FUN day! I'm glad you enjoyed them, and I hope your sunburn goes away quickly!

Autumn, It is hard to do fun things with kids. We don't do stuff very often. Don't think we do. Once your house is sold, and your life is "simplified" I am sure you will find much more time! I was not looking forward to the long crazy day, but they were just happy to be able to roam. Hang in there! When they get older it wil be easier.
