Too much stuff to post - but decided I needed to post something ;^)
We spent a week at the beach week before last. A few photos:
Where we were - North Topsail Island, NC:
Playing in a tide pool:
Waiting to go into the sea turtle hospital:
My tween's mermaid sand sculpture:
The mid-kid turned 10 the Saturday we were there:
We got him guitar hero, but he doesn't much like it - the tween and I are having much more fun with it. I will probably take him out tomorrow for a new game that *he* picks out.
I took the tween shopping yesterday. New pierced ears, new jeans, new undergarments. Mother-daughter bonding time, definitely.
Today we went to a picnic at the local state park, a combination end-of-summer/start-of-school/going-away-of-friends party thrown by the parents of one of the tween's friends. We had a great time - good food, some time on the paddleboats.
Just not much crafty going on here. I did make some chocolate chip cheesecake brownies for the picnic, but I'm not sure that counts!
