Sun, Sand, Sea & Seaweed (a lot of them too)

We completed our summer checklist this past Sunday and wrapped up the summer by taking a little one to the beach. It sure was a beautiful sunny day but HOT..HOT..and super HOT. Despite the cruel heat wave, there came ocean breeze (what a relief!). The little miss had a blast building sand castle and running into water over and over again. Prior to the trip, we had heard about the unusual amount of seaweeds but decided to head out there anyway. They were literally everywhere. Some still fresh and some dried up. I thought they kind of add a special character.

I packed a few essentials such as a beach blanket, a kite (which we ended up not playing), a ball, stuff to make PB & J, chips, water and milk. It was nice to just sit out there, look up in the sky and let go of all your worries for the moment. Can't wait to do this again, perhaps when it is not as hot in about a month.

Food, Fun and Family Time

We had a family gathering this weekend at a restaurant, different from how we usually meet up at my in-laws' house. The food was great, portion was enormous. I can't believe summer is almost over and school will soon start. Next weekend we hope to do some fun activities at the beach like playing a kite, building sand castles, playing a beach ball and having a picnic. Fingers crossed the weather cooperates. Hope everyone have a great weekend.
