When your pants slide off and other such happenings

Spent the a.m. running errands. 

Spent the afternoon at the beach with the kids.

Grilled salmon, asparagus, balsamic potatoes, rolls, oven french fries, green salad, spinach & strawberry salad, fruit salad....dinner.

Now to pack....found the camera....

This trench keeps growing - now reaches the ocean. I suspect they'll bulldoze it again and even it all out eventually....but for now the kids love playing in it.

Stacia has become my sea glass collector. We discovered these rocky spots are BEST for finding sea glass, we simply sit down and look around us.....

This is not a staged shot....four nice pieces laying out....Stacia loves finding them.

Stacia and I  have a "pocketful" rule...because she likes to collect rocks and all sorts of pretty shells too, "for mother's day." I tell her the sea glass goes in the bucket (or bag) and she can take as many shells as will fit in her pockets....Look at those pockets... Which led to her astute observation today......

"When your pants slide off, your pockets are full!"

Our additions today....plenty of room left in the bucket. LOL

Glad to have one who sits and collects with me....we even laid back and caught some rays today. But not Zander.....

Look at the lettuce - had garden fresh romaine today....and broccoli too.

Kids were SHOCKED I bought these for them.....American Obentos. ::snort:: I'm going to buy some bento boxes and make our own with organic treats in the future. The kids kept saying, "Thank you, Mom, I never thought you'd EVER buy us these!" ::snort::

Sis:

Can I have some lunchables??? :):) Love the sea glass. love the pocket rule. She sounds like G'Simmons, me and you when it comes to liking shells and rocks and etc.

what fun and so neat the beach is so close and even clean. Not to clean in Managoy was it..... but the island was fun.

love/prayers - Mom T.

The sea glass is pretty. I should take the kids to search for sea glass here--maybe I could lure Lily down to the beach! She's been terrified of the waves for years...
The lunchables made me laugh. My kids are always begging me to buy them, and I never do:-) They would probably love it if I got some bento boxes and made them lunches in those, though. That's a great idea!

Pretty sea glass! I would stuff my pockets too. Fun!

Stacia's pockets are hilarious...and I'm shock about the lunchables too...you didn't even let us older kids have those when we were little...wow...you're getting soft or something...lol jk
