Weekend Part 1

You’ve seen posts of us before exploring this state park, but it is one of our favorite spots. The girls get lots of chances to climb, dig, run, and play.


More soon!

Hello Weekend!

Currently knocking on wood, but KoKo (not her real name) miiiiiiight be forgetting that she hates cameras. Maybe it was a phase. Or maybe we just had a good week. Or maybe I bribed her with popsicles. You’ll never know. Anyway, this little sunshine and I had a few minutes to kill before picking up sister yesterday so we played by this happy yellow wall. Self timer for the win!



I hope your weekend is filled with happy moments.

Beach Day Wednesday

Surprise surprise! Koko (not her real name) and I spent our morning at the beach. Someday I am going to have to get a (paying) job and this chick will go to school so until then, to the beach we go! 

We stopped on the way at a little beachside ice cream shop and took a few iphone photos because that honey looks so cute in her swimwear. Can we talk about the Iphone 6s camera?! That thing is bomb. In full sun it still manages to expose for the face and the sky.


I hope your Wednesday is also blissful!

These Kids


Get dirty. Holes in all the clothes.

Catch Minnows with bare hands.

Bask in sunshine.

Suck in water through the nose. Sputter. Dive Back in again.

Climb branches.

Watch The Sound of Music again.

Follow Tracks.

Sandy scalps.


Run fast.
Get knocked down by waves.
More sunscreen.
Chase Seagulls.
Play Ipad.
Sing loud.
Follow jungle trails to see where they lead.
Dance with the palm trees.


Take long road trips.

Spot Dolphins.

Wish you could be a dolphin.

Wear mis-matched flip flops. Half are lost.

Try all the snow cone flavors.

Sing along with the Dora theme song.

Scream and jump in the rain with your people.

Ruin cameras from adventuring hard. Get new cameras.


Clean out sandy dryer.

See the stars. And the meteor showers.
I think you don’t have to choose if your kids are hooked on technology or don’t have any access to it at all. I think you have to nurture their need for adventure and not protect them so hard. Then they can also play some Ipad. At least, that’s how we do it.
