Early Summer

On Friday, Adam and I went to the beach.  It was windy, but fabulous.  Way too cold for the water, of course, but it was perfect weather for bare feet and a sweatshirt.  A little too windy for a picnic (though we managed!), but just right for a kite.

First the kite.

The first thing we did when we got there was actually the picnic.  It was a little windy for it, and I came underprepared without napkins or plates.  But when you have a tub of hummus, a package of pita, a red pepper and a paring knife, do you really need plates?  Well, yeah, when the sand is blowing like that, you do. 

Still, Adam looked up from his steady munching more than once to say, "Mom, this is a really good lunch."  I know I can't take credit for the wind and the water.  But that package of hummus?  All me.

Then we played with our new beach toys--sand molds, rake, shovel, watering can and bucket.  Adam kept saying "Let's build a sandcastle!" but I'm not sure he knew what that meant.  Mostly we dug and raked.

Adam quickly learned to keep his hat on in the wind.

And at the end of the day, lunch on the beach (especially the pear, I think) plus sandy wind equals sand goatee.

That was a super awesome day, no doubt about it.
