Two Cuties

“Hey girls, can you stand next to each other and smile at the camera?” The answer is not really. I think I’ve temporarily lost my photographer mojo.  These pictures are terrible (even though the girls are cute).  Hopefully it will return soon. We are plodding along this last week before school starts.  I have yet …

Summer fun!

Emotionally I’m ready for fall, but the calendar tells me we have four more weeks of summer.  Best enjoy this beautiful sunshine before it disappears for nine months.

Sprinkler Time

Although the same activity, I love how they are each doing their own thing in the top shot; Linlee with the umbrella and Holly with the tea pot.

Can Holly go to first grade too?

Linlee goes to first grade in two weeks – can you hear me jumping up and down and squealing with joy?  But honestly, I need the baby to go with her.  Holly can be so very busy.  She is into everything.  Today she walked by sucking on a can of spray sunblock.  Super.  After putting …

blue bucket, orange shovel

I had thought with my children being five years apart, there would be very little competition over toys.  WRONG.  Above is the current prize possession in our house; a ratty old, scratched up, blue bucket and orange shovel.  For whatever reason, Linlee has become very attached to these two items.  She has preferred them over …

One last good-bye…

We took Bailey’s ashes to Cannon Beach.  Back when Rob and I were dating, we took our first get-away trip together there and we brought Bailey along.  We think the trip was probably one of the highlights of her life; those beautiful stretches of beach for her to run to her heart’s delight.  She got …

Last beach day…

Holly and her Mémé I love Holly’s expression in the picture above; “Put the camera away.” Running toward the sea… Love this one of Holly flying the kite. Granddad Young, cousin Glen, Rob and Linlee Cousin Shannon Time for smores! Any guesses on whether or not Linlee actually ate her smore?  Nope. The whole gang …

Another beachy update.

Here is the beach house we’re staying at.  It was originally a duplex, but was turned into one house.  It can sleep ten, I think.  We are nine all together, but Holly doesn’t really count because she is sleeping with Rob and me in our room. And here is the double staircase inside.  One staircase …

Beachy Update

We spent another fabulous day on the beach yesterday.  I purposely did not bring my camera along so that I could “live in the moment,” but I’m actually sorry I made that choice.  Holly became fearless of the water and kept charging out to the waves in her little swim suit to splash her feet …

Perfect Beach Day

Today has been so nice.  This morning during Holly’s morning nap, Rob took Linlee to the beach and I got to read my book.  When Holly woke up, my mom and I packed a picnic lunch and we met Rob and Linlee down on the beach.  The girls were darling playing in the sand and …
