My Real Life

This weekend we headed to the beach for a vacation with my parents.

Real Man has to work, so he was only able to spend the weekend, and then headed back after dinner on Sunday.

The monkeys and I are here for the long haul.

Sunday was a good day.

There was an early morning walk.

Scooter rides.

Fun on the beach.

Baby Monkey’s “butt-trail” from the boardwalk to where we were sitting on the beach.

The mass exodus when the rain started.

Solitaire with Grandma.

An impromptu walk with Real Man and our two littlest guys when the rain stopped.

Dinner at the counter because the table is consistently covered by one jigsaw puzzle or another.

The day was capped off by a trip to Dairy Queen, but with Monkey Girl’s first lick of her cone, the ice cream fell to the ground and was covered in gravel.  There were tears and it just wasn’t a Kodak moment.

More tears when we said goodbye to Real Man, then inside to have some quiet time before we went to bed.

A good day and a great start to our vacation.


  1. The butt trail shot was the best! Reminded me of the sea turtle hatchling’s sand tracks as they make their way to the ocean waters in Florida!

    • Ah-ha! Hilarious! We saw that in NC a few years ago and you are exactly right!
