Weekend Update

Well that was a nice little break.

Every now and then it's so nice to step away from the computer and really enjoy life, ya' know?

In other news, we went to Colonial Beach yesterday. It was really cold. And windy.

And while we thought we could maybe go swimming, Blayne summed it up best.

"Those is DROWNING waters."

Blayne, Daniel, and Grandpa

Grandpa, saving Blayne
(because rescuing sand buckets is a wet job)

back row:Taylor, Meredith, Grandma, moi
front row: Daniel, Blayne, Thaddeus

And for the extraordinarily unobservant, that would be my parents and one of my sisters visiting. Well, my parents are visiting. Meredith is going to stay for keeps. {eyebrow wiggle}


  1. You and your family are wonderfully, gorgeously blonde! Other than your father, are there any other dark-haired folks?

  2. Well that looks like a lot of fun!! :) Yay for sister staying!

  3. So what did Taylor do to her forehead?? (I'm the opposite of extraordinarily unobservant!) :D

  4. So fun! I wish we had a beach...

  5. Wow, what did you have to do to get your sister to stay for keeps? Are there a lot of cute guys out that way? That beach story reminds me of the time we left home here in the SF east bay when it was 102 and drove two hours to an actual beach--the temp dropped by a degree every five minutes. It was about 46 on the beach itself and so windy my daughter, who was lolling about on a towel in the sand, was actually blown off the beach and into the water. San Francisco bay area beaches are not the stuff of California legend.

  6. Hey there! Just visiting over from MMB New England!

    I live in MA---so wanted to touch base with you----great blog...

    If you have time, visit me at

  7. Let me tell the world of people that comment on your blog that. . . I. LOOK. HOT!!!! YEAH i know! Hard to accomplish i know! ha ha jk!

  8. You are SO lucky to live where you do!

    I'm jealous!

  9. I like the expression "drowning waters" and think I will use in as I use "fighting words," as in, "Hold on now, those is drowning waters, man."

  10. I'm glad you came and spent some time at the beach. Maybe next time the weather will be calmer and warmer.
