um, kristen? yeah, my mom is IN the water? would you get her out? because she's nuts. i felt that water, and it's colder than it looks.

yes! we went to the beach yesterday! It was marvellous! we got there a bit after 3 and stayed until it started to get cold (the air, i mean). most of the kids ended up drenched to the ribcage, but had a marvellous time.

our spread is those two umbrellas up there and all the people-shaped forms that go with them. Look at that clear blue sky! it was delicious.

i wish I could say this form on the left, below is me, but alas, no. that's Jen, of the perfect figure. I tried to feed her a bunch of cookies, but she wouldn't eat very many. dang it... :)
today Connor is on a field trip to Long Beach, to an aquarium, for the whole day. he woke up early and could hardly contain his excitement. it's his first trip on a school bus, and his first trip without me. *ack!* *stress!* I hope he has an awesome time, and I'm looking forward to getting him in 2 hours and soaking him up. I love that kid....

I love to wade and look for shells, but catch me any higher than my knees? Nope there's sharks in that water! Especially down here we have bull sharks that will come up in very very shallow water. Glad ya'll had fun.

As I just commented to Nan, I am insanely jealous.

Wow. The beach, eh? Remember what snow looks like? All we have to do is look out the windows.
