Hitting the Ground

We're back from Topsail Island and now off to the races...I have lots to show and tell - the beach was everything magnificent and beautiful, there are very few things that make me feel as satisfied as watching my little boys play and enjoy perfect bliss in the sand and water.

The road trips there and back were our first of the constant "Are we there yet?" variety, so we feel we have officially arrived at parenthood.

But my absolute personal favorite part was hearing David tell Henry at one of our frequent stops: "Aw, Henry! Come on, man! If you're not going to eat it, you don't need to rub it all over your body."

Does that not make anyone else just start giggling and not be able to stop or complete a coherent sentence for the next ten minutes?

Maybe you had to be there. And really tired. And understand that David was soooo not trying to be funny. But it still makes me laugh, the things you could never imagine actually saying in your life. It all comes out when you have kids.

We're getting settled back into real life and I have school tonight (yes, even on Labor Day), so I've got to pull myself together and get serious now. But I'll be back.

Happy September!

I'm so glad you had a marvelous time at the beach. The booming waves, misty air and taste of salt all make me think at some point I need to return to the beach.

Half of our vacation pictures are of the kids in their car seats, totally covered in something sticky. How can they do so much damage with just a 1/4 of a PB&J?
