In need of rest!

Absolutely phenomenal weekend...if you can call five days a weekend. We headed out after work on Tuesday, got to the ferry with about three minutes to spare and made it to the beach house in time to get some very cranky toddlers to bed. While it was blistering hot across most of America, bordering on downright dangerous in most of the midwest, I can happily report that it was absolutely divine on "Island that shall not be named but is in fact not remotely a mystery and has been identified in the past" (I think that is the actual English translation of the Eastern Algonquin word...)

The house was still largely occupied by members of Smoking Hot Roommate's mother's family, so there were a ton of people there, and tons of activity. LK has finally gotten to the point that she will put her toes in the sand, although it was a long process to get to that point...(what can I say, she has some complexes;-)). They really do love the beach, which makes me super happy. I don't know what I will do if I have beach-hating children...

We also found out that they love lobster, especially MA, who devoured most of the tail of a three-pounder. Let's hope she doesn't get too attached to that habit. Also, ice cream, but we already knew that;-)

The bad news is that the girls got WAY out of their normal routine...waking up late, staying awake until almost 11:00, napping from like 3:30 until after 5:00 (normal nap time is from about 12:30 to 3:00 or so). They are not going to be really fun campers at day care today, but the teachers there will get them back into their routine in no time. They have a magic way of doing that...

Overall, summer plans are pretty well set. Munchkin and I are heading on a college tour in three weeks, and Frenchie is coming after that for a week or so. Tinkerbelle is going to come for most of a week, too, maybe by herself and maybe with one of our cousins. Super excited about that, obvs;-).

And now, back to work...phooey...vacationing is MUCH more fun...

I totally agree! We spent the evening on the common after we saw Blue Man Group, and I didn't want to go home! It definitely made me want to live in Boston!

Still dreaming about once having a house on the sea. It must be so great to have that opportunity and go there for weekends. Nice!!
