Last week we headed down the shore for some fun.
We really didn't do much! We got out on the beach once. We tried to go a second day, but we aren't early risers and by the time we got around, the beaches were closed because of overcrowding! So, we went to the pool instead!
We had a nice relaxing time. I got hooked on the Twilight series! The only time I read is when I go down the shore! Now I've got to try and find time to read the last 3 books of the series!! I started New Moon today.
From the previous post, you know our trips can't be dull. I'm afraid that it was because of me this time!! On Saturday night, Chris and I went out to eat at one of our favorite restaurants down there. I don't know if it's a coincidence or not, but I ended up with what I think was a case of food poisoning! I was so sick! I slept almost straight for 36 hours on Sunday!! I still wasn't feeling very good for our trip home on Monday either!! Blech!! So, no beach that day, but it was also stormy that day. Chris took the kids for some bike rides in between storms.
Luckily, I took the camera to the beach the first day and got a few pictures. I've noticed myself taking less and less pictures on our trips. It's so much nicer to just enjoy the times! I'm sure the kids are happy to not have the camera stuck in their faces constantly! Plus, when you go the same places year after year, all the pics look the same anyway!
Here's a goofy photo strip of Chris and I in one of those photo booths. So fun!!
It was back to the grind for us this week. I went to work two days and Chris started back after having three weeks off!! We've got a couple little trips planned yet through the fall, but prime vacation is over! Macy starts school next Monday. She gets to find out her teacher and classmates this Monday and she's so excited!! Jack starts on Sept 8th, I think! We have a meeting with his teacher on the 28th. Lots of back to school shopping to do too, we haven't even started buying new clothes or new shoes yet!!
Here's a layout a did about 2 months ago. I don't think I've posted it before.
I'd share a few more layouts with you, but I haven't rescanned any of them since I got my new hard drive! Hopefully I'll have some to share soon!
Have a great week!
