I’m baa-aack.

Actually I’ve been back since Monday night but getting back into the swing of things only just as of five minutes ago.  I let the girls play hookey from school Monday (shhhhh) and Kristen had a project due Tuesday, and then you add onto that the after-vacation laundry and shopping and, well, you get the picture.

The beach was beeyooootiful, though, and I did not want to leave.  I was concerned that it might be a little chilly for my taste, but it was actually kind of perfect.  The temps were in the low 80’s, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky the entire time, and the water was clear, calm and blue.  Perfection!  I was very close to doing an internet search on squatters rights, people.

The girls had a blast; there was paddleboarding:

Go, Anna!

and sand crabbing:

and then on our last day I forced everyone into cute clothes and took out the fancypants camera for some beach shots:

Thank you, random lady on the beach, for taking this one.

Love this:

Me: Act like you’re having fun.  Anna: If we were having fun we wouldn’t be holding hands.


Other random shots that I love, for those of you who don’t already feel like you’re being forced to watch someone’s old home movies:

I want to go back!  Gah, I’m so angry at being poor and not rich right now!
