Happy 4th of July!

What a busy and amazing long weekend we've just had!
On Saturday, we headed over to Half Moon Bay.
It was Scotty's first visit to the ocean!  (Note to self:  No matter how close you live to the bay, a bay is not, in point of fact, an ocean.)  There was interest....
...and plenty of contemplation....
...along with some properly pronounced caution...
...before the total abandon.  What a glorious, blue, shiny day we had!  Soaked from our waists down, only Scotty had the foresight to bring a change of clothes. 
The rest of us rode home in damp underpants.
We had a picnic of deli sandwiches and played catch on the beach.
Scotty continued the generational tradition of creating "sand angels".  It's a perfectly acceptable manner of warming up when your parents forget to bring towels.  *cough*
On the way home, Erik asked Scotty if he felt scared in the waves.  "No, Daddy!  I felt so happy!"
Be still my heart.
And that was just Saturday!  We headed up to our friend's lake house the next morning.
To be continued....


  1. Those pictures and your new banner are fantastic. I bet Scotty was amazed by the waves. Can't wait to read part 2. Love you.

  3. Thanks, Ladies! Erik was cracking up when he saw the new banner..."How did you get everybody like that, from shortest to tallest?" haha! Yeah, right, like have that kind of power. :)

    @ Tra ~ Oh my gosh, how I missed you this weekend! No blood, no booze, no tubing disasters or 3rd degree sunburns...it was a total disaster. :)
