My camera bit the dust. Or more accurately sand. But that was only after it went swimming in the ocean while turned on. And oh, yeah, stayed there for a good 20 minutes being tossed here and there before I realized it was missing (I was supervising a 2 year old in the surf at the time. And did I mention the red flags were at full mast (aka only idiots should step toe in the water - and the lifeguards were quite adamantly chasing off anyone who ventured much past knee deep). Yeah... um common sense? Not so much....
Actually we had planned to meet some friends at the beach (they set it up). And I hadn't even checked the weather. They texted us to tell us they were rescheduling the morning of (which I didn't get because I have texting turned off on my phone - don't ask...). To make a long story short(er) we decided to go anyways (the car was already loaded, the kids were already in and the rain chances were only something like 30% at the crack of dawn and in the late afternoon neither of which being times that we would be there). We were by no means the only ones on the beach, though parking (parallel parking!) was thankfully sparse enough to land me a pull in spot on the seawall feet from a stairway down the beach at our favorite beachfront. It was a bit grey and cloudy, and even pretty ominous looking offshore for a while, but the cool breeze and break from the heat were a welcome relief that let us play far longer than we would have otherwise.

They are popcorn sliders. It is actually really pretty cool how they work. To open them you don't untie the ribbon - you just pull it out.
And out comes the bag of microwave popcorn and the gift card/movie ticket sleeve. How cool is that?? :)
Here's the gift card/movie ticket holder I came up with. I am actually planning to put movie ticket vouchers inside. I got a good deal on tickets from our local theater that have no restrictions and never expire. Just perfect!

It only seems appropriate to post a picture of the boys and I today. Unfortunately this is as good as it gets... And for the record I was talking to someone off camera which is why I have such a totally goofy look on my face. :) Kevin got the boys shirts that said something like "My Mom Rocks." They showed off both their muscles and their farmer's tans.

If it's actually Kevin who is taking these, well that just might explain a few things. :)

And for the record I had nothing to do with Connor and the tub. He took his jungle book and crawled in to read.

And for the record that blue spec practically in the middle of the tub. Uh, huh. The blue fish. Kevin did eventually find the "red" fish and life went back to normal, or as normal as it gets around here. Note to self: Do not pass go. Go directly to the store and buy more fish.

Yesterday Kevin came home from his trip to Taiwan/China. I think he's still trying to figure out what time it is and what time zone he is in. Though hopefully it helped that we spent most of the day outside in the sun running around chasing the boys. It was the extended family reunion today at the park. Kevin and his brother chased the boys around most of the time while I got to sit down for the first time in what seems like ages. :)
