...let's pretend that we went to the beach this past weekend and I'm not more than a week late in getting this post up.
The last trip to the beach of the year is always beautiful. The crowds and the heat are gone. But it's bittersweet too.
Clara's first order of business when we arrive at the beach is always, always, always "Eat. Chips. Eat. Eat!"
Her first priority at the beach is never sleep, hence the dark circles under her eyes.
Charlie was really excited about a family picture. He suddenly lost all muscle tone in his body.
We took a trip to the kid's favorite park.
And yes, I wore my athletic shorts and sweatshirt the entire weekend. And no makeup. I did brush my teeth and hair.
I love this picture of the four of us. Charlie still prefers the "baby" swing even though his feet barely fit through the holes. Both kids love swinging. But I love this picture for another reason. You can kind of tell that Ken and I are talking to each other. I can remember exactly what we were talking about - something work-related. I love the conversations we have about work. He's one of my most trusted advisors. So glad my dad captured this and all of these pictures.
