Vacationing – Part Deux

Filed under: Adventuring — Amy @ 7:34 am

Another great day, more fun to share.

Early mornings with Monkey in the Middle and Tiny equal hanging out,


filling empty water bottles with rocks,

and checking out spider webs in trees.

Fun of the beach,

We love watching these guys burrow their way back into the sand.

There was also a paddle ball marathon with Monkey in the Middle and I, who are trying to up our record of volleys each day.  This day, we got up to 21.  Shooting for 30 tomorrow.

Quick trip to the A&P.  Much more manageable on a Monday than a Saturday.

Longer trip to the library.

Grandpa treating the kids to the ice cream man.

The kids re-paying Grandpa for the ice-cream by beating Grandpa and I in Beat the Parents.

Another banner day with the monkeys.

Life is good.


  1. It’s so nice to see that as someone who works so hard during the schoolyear, you enjoy every little moment with your kids that you are with them.

  2. It looks like you’re having an amazing time. I used to love watching the shells burrow in the sand as well. After they’d disappear I’d try to dig them up. Try putting a scoop of sand in your hand and letting them borrow through the sand to your finger. You can feel the movement. Simple, but awesome fun.

    Deep Peace
