The way summer should be...'s been one of those weeks and we're going away on Friday...and...and...and


Well, this weekend was perfect. The way it should be in the summer.

I grew up and didn't realize how spoiled we were. My mom stayed home with us and we lived two house lengths from the beach. So we spent a lot of time at the beach. We had a yard, so when we weren't at the beach we were playing in the yard. We faced East-West, so at least part of the yard was in the shade all day. We had cousins who lived in town who we saw regularly - actually I'm pretty sure that all of us would probably say our first friends happened to be related to us.


This weekend we got to spend Saturday at Alex's parents' house where J got to play with her cousin Isabella.

And Sunday we went to the beach with my side of the family - my sisters, Jared and our cousin Chelsea and her daughter Pippa. Who J loves. Who J calls Peepa.
