our weather is so wacky here.  last friday my kids were neck deep in the ocean with their friends.  in their clothes.  it was awesome.  mostly because we just got to sit on the beach and laugh at them!

 i’m loving having long hair again, mostly because i can have a messy bun and it looks like i actually did my hair!

like i said, the weather… wacky.  we went to the beach on sunday and it was hot.  until after dark!  we ended up staying until bedtime.  i thought that would be the last beach visit of the year… but then we went again on tuesday!

 we celebrated our dating anniversary this week – 16 years!

 16 years of being total dorks.

yep, back at the beach.  i love that my kids are old enough to drag all their own things to the beach, wash themselves off, and drag it all back to the car.  si still needs help with his wetsuit,but beyond that i am basically glued to my beach chair.

 75* evenings called for extra time outside.  before you hate me too much, we’re expecting rain over the next few days.

 this boy went to a time out.  for a couple hours.  then we realized “hey, maybe silas fell asleep?”.  turns out he had a fever.  we are really good parents.

new messenger bags were added to the shop – bold colors, polka dots, all sorts of happiness!

 every once in awhile (as often as possible) i like to do breakfast for dinner.  and then my kids love me like crazy for a night and no one complains about dinner! we made cinnamon roll waffles.   or cinnfles (pronounced sin-ful) – kinda makes sense now…

just bought a couple packages of pillsbury cinnamon rolls and plopped 4 cinnamon rolls at a time on the waffle iron for a few minutes, then topped with the icing – so easy!
