One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Summer has Officially Begun!!!!!

I love the beach -- thankfully so do the kids!! Today was our first beach trip of the summer. After our typical Saturday morning big breakfast, we headed to Newcastle beach. The weather was beautiful, the water was cold (but that didn't stop us), and the sand was perfect for castle making. Turynn and her mom Jody met us there, too. Here I am playing with Evelyn and Turynn:

Kiddos (Noah couldn't be bothered with a picture, he was too hard at work)Family shot: We saw numerous boats on the water, a seaplane take off, a male and female duck swim by closely, and also a bald eagle that swooped down a couple times towards the deep end of the beach area (I think it was trying to catch a fish) -- pretty cool. The weather is supposed to be nice again on Monday... maybe we will make another trip to the beach :)

Yay summer! Finally!

Yes, let's get together for a run! Not sure where you are, but saw you met up with Zoe so you can't be too far!

I have a little FB running group -- so we can all connect. Are you on Facebook?

I love the beach and so do the kids. Our investment in a summer pass was the best idea :)
