My good friend Sherry called me and said she was taking 2 of her kids to the beach for the weekend and would Adam and I like to come. I had just gotten home from my yearly scrapbooking weekend and was hesitant to go. But when Scott said that he was busy all weekend with Taylor and softball tryouts and Brett was going on a scout camp it didn't take me long to agree to going. After all what could be better than enjoying the beautiful scenery, running in the waves and spending time with great friends?!
Sherry and I loaded up the kids and enough food for 2 weeks and headed out. We got in pretty late that night but when we woke the next morning it was like a dream. The skies were clear blue and nothing but warm sunshine! Sherry and I kept commenting that we couldn't believe the luck we had in having a warm, sunny, wind free day at the beach. The kids had a great time making maps in the sand, for Sherry and I to follow, digging trenches for the water to flow and of course, building sand castles.
As you can see I am a little bit behind on my posts. I have found that I will sit down and catch up and resolve to do better next time and then before I know it I am right where I was the last time, far behind!
This Halloween was a little crazy. Taylor went with some friends and Brett had a football game and then he was having some friends over so I was on my own. After I got done getting Adam ready in the parking lot of the football field Adam wanted to hide in the bushes to see if Scott and I could really see him. When we said, "yes" he would move father back and say, "now can you?" We finally had to say, "Nope, not at all."
I met my sister, her husband and their 3 kids and we went trick-or-treating to one of the best neighborhoods around. They spend the whole week decorating their houses and the crowd they draw is unreal!!! It's always so fun to see what different costumes people dress their kids in. Of course, we are a little partial and think our kids are the cutest.
