Beach at Sunset
Today after church we crashed at a friend's house, and then went to the beach after naptime. We've been here a year and a half, and this was our first time at the beach at sunset. It's my favorite time of day at the beach, and I can't believe we hadn't done this yet. It was so beautiful. Isaac saw the boats out in the sunset, and his first question was, "Are those pirates?" Vance looked at me and said, "I'm going to be so sad when I don't hear questions like that anymore."
It was a little chilly and windy, which I wasn't expecting, so after our walk Isaac spent a lot of time under the blanket.
Mom always said when we went camping that she thought, "Why are we doing this?" as she went through all the work of packing. Once we were actually camping, though, she rediscovered why it was worth the work. Today was like that for me. I didn't want to be up after midnight getting our lives organized enough to be gone all day, but once we were at the beach, it didn't matter anymore.
I think when the weather gets a little warmer, we'll grill out at the beach for dinner some evening. Who's coming?
