We boarded Loki and headed to the beach for a quick weekend in the sand and surf. Molly joined us since mom was spending the weekend in Las Vegas with AJ and Uncle Edward (no, I am not kidding).
The sun was shining. The water was icy-cold. Lucy, finally, loved the sand and James was exactly how you would imagine a 5 month old would behave at the beach. I wish I had captured his initial reaction to the waves on video (I didn't have the Flip with me at the time, of course, but I had my camera). It was the craziest mixture of exhilaration and terror.
Check out his face in the picture - looks just like the Cowardly Lion from Wizard of Oz - just sayin':
All in all it was a perfect weekend and, although it was quick, with three adults around for child care I think everyone had at least a little bit of peace and quiet at some point during that 48 hour period of time. I spent my 1.5 hours with Molly underneath a big umbrella reading magazines and listening the waves. It was bliss.
Here are some of the pictures from the weekend:
