Beach day

This past Friday we took a beach day! It was about 1 hour and 15 mins away from our new home. Yea! We loaded up (took friends and family) and head to the beach. It is a great family beach because it is shallow for quite a ways and there aren't any big waves. The kids loved it. we got there when the tide was out and stayed until the tide came in. Mommy got red as a lobster. the kids did fine. They loved getting to build sandcastles, look for crabs in the water, walk along the sandbar, and have fun all around! Here's a few pictures of our fun:

That night daddy came home! We don't mind sharing him with big kids but we do miss him while he's gone and are always happy to see him come home. . . . especially when he brings presents! He brought a camp t-shirt for each kid!

Saturday we just hang out and relaxed as a family.

Sunday we went to our new church home for class and big church. It was great. The kids went right in to their classes and enjoyed them. We went to lunch with Peter, Becky, Hannah, and Rachel. My kids have adopted H and R as theirs now. :)

Then we went to Boarders for their closing sale. G wants a Red Sox wall calendar. They didn't have any but each kid picked out something and I got a book. gasp! I know a real paper book! Yikes!

We went back to the house for an hour then it was time to head back to the building for a farewell dinner for one of the families. After dinner there was an impromptu youth group bowling night set up. So we bowled. I had to eat crow because I stank it up and Matthew did quite well. (unlike our last bowling night). Then we all went for ice cream before returning to the building. We had so much fun with the teens.

Monday I didn't feel to great and spent the morning napping. then we just relaxed a bit the rest of the afternoon.

Today the kids and I went with Jesse to her friend's house who has a pool. The kids loved it. They did fairly well at getting along. Only a few "talks" with mommy over disagreements. :) Then we came back to the house and relaxed until Matthew could get away from his work long enough to go to the bank and open checking accts.

So far, we're doing good up here in the north. The weathers been great. I know, I know, enjoy it now because once Winter hits we'll be locked in for months with bitter cold all around us. :)
