Mini staycation.

23 Aug

This year has been such a whirlwind that the thought of taking a vacation is plain exhausting. And we had so much fun during our impromtu trip to Tahoe Ralph and I thought that we should continue the memories. Saturday morning, we loaded up the car with a picnic, some chairs, towels and sand toys and made a day of it at the beach. The weather could not have been more breathtaking. We swam, built sand castles, read magazines, and even napped a little. Gia has learned how to take pictures.  Which is pretty fun.  We no longer have to take pictures of ourselves only as far away as our arms can reach.  Of course, we faced the playground side and not the water.  Oh well, next time.  Next time.

On Sunday, we got up and watched some Fresh Beat Band, had “Peanut Jelly Oatmeal” and thought we would head out to the zoo. Our plans were a little derailed and we went to the river for lunch instead.We followed our river lunch with a quick nap and swimming with friends (which I don’t have any pictures documenting). We all got a little sun and a lot refreshed. It was great. Can’t wait to do it again…maybe even before the summer is over.

    Sounds like so much fun! I love the picture of Luke in the chair.
