At the Beach

Don’t chase the quaffle if you see the snitch.

Guys!!  Have you tried this stuff?!  I eat it on sprouted toast with butter and it TOTALLY tastes like an everything bagel, Lol!  I love it.

So my baby (ok, he’s 15) is going to camp next week…in another state!  And they stay on HOUSEBOATS.  I don’t know if I’m jealous or terrified.  Pants took the boys paddle boarding last week, and Sky really liked it, so I think he’s gonna have a blast at camp with his buddies doing all the water stuff.

Just a few token pics of Shark at the beach with his buddy, since summer is definitely in full swing around here!  Full disclosure:  Sky was there too, but after a little while he went and sat in the car with his phone, Lol.  Lesson learned:  No friends or activity other than playing with younger kids in the sand?  Teens will say ‘No thanks’.  These 11 year olds sure had fun though!

the marvel of heaven and earth

my folks are in town from Michigan, so we are spending lots of time at the coast!  here’s a few pics from our laguna beach outing yesterday…
always the climber…
this 12yr old cool cat was intent on seeing a whale out there…he said, ‘even if we saw a dead one wash up on shore that’d be cool…’  would it?
aaand…what am I looking at?  off into the distance…but not at the ocean, which is totally behind me, lol…

more pictures…from last august!
if you aren’t my mom, you probably don’t care that my brother and his fam came to visit in august.  we hit all the hot spots (the beach, the pool, the aquarium, legoland), but i think the kiddos had the most fun just hanging out at home with cousin Emily.
