Last Friday we decided last minute to throw out our weekend to-do list and head for the beach. My parents’ beach house near Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, to be exact. It’s about 2 1/2 hours away.
I literally threw some food in a cooler (essentials like cereal and hot dogs and soda), packed our swimming suits, summer clothes, and diapers (totally forgot shoes and sunscreen and toothbrushes) and, we ran out the door and headed to the relaxing place that we love.
Hello Lewes, Delaware. You are a beautiful little historic town. And you have a great little beach that our kids loved. We will be back.
 Hello boy who is growing before my very eyes.  I am so proud to be your mommy.

Hello insanely HOT weather. We didn’t venture out to the beach until 6pm.

 Hello little girl who loves all things sand and water.
Hello monster fish (a tuna) caught by my fisherman Dad. The kids loved it. Jack said that the eye balls felt squishy like a trampoline. Gotta love it. Some of my earliest memories are of going fishing/boating with my dad. It’s been his hobby ever since I can remember.

Hello full-fledged cold in the middle of a heat wave. Not fun. Please go away.

Hello boating in the ocean on a beautiful summer day. Apparently it was exhausting for Violet.
Hello brand new week with lots to do!
Hello tackling my overflowing email inbox. Seriously, it’s crazy right now. If you’ve requested a sign in the past few days, hang tight. I will answer your email shortly.
Hello beautiful, COOLER temps for the week. I love summer and all, but 105 degrees is a bit much.
What are you saying hello to this week?
I’m saying “Hello” with Lisa this morning.
