What We Did on Our Summer Vacation

What follows are a few of the things I haven't written about yet. That is to say, I have lots of photos so enough with the words, already.

On our summer vacation, we:


...checked the mail every day...



...and wore cute shoes to do it...



...covered owies with our favorite bandaids...



...played in a tent in the back yard...



...went to OC's first gymnastics class...



...had new friends over to watch a movie while the grownups blah blah blahed for like, ever...



...enjoyed the story that grandma read...



...let OC take pictures for awhile, which this was the result...



...played in the water with Polly Pockets when OC's cousins came to visit (and, what is up with these tiny Polly Pockets toys? I continuously find little parts and pieces all over the house!)...



...took trips to the beach...



...where we got water from the ocean...



...to make the sand wet...



...in order to make a sand castle...



...which was fun...



...and gave us time to contemplate things...



...and take in the scenery...



...we drew a butterfly and decorated it with shells...



...we got the idea because someone had drawn a cat in the sand...



On the way home, I bet OC five pennies that she would fall asleep in the car. When I looked back at her I saw this:



I asked her what she was doing. She said she was holding her hands like this so I could put the money in them if she fell asleep.

It was a good summer.

Hahah! Do you usually put money in her hands while she sleeps? Too cute.

Does the tooth fairy come a little too often at your place?

I love your pictures - such great scenes. And did you draw that stuff in the sand?! I'm so jealous. That butterfly is so cool! And I love the cat - looks like he has a personality.

And my daughter so covets those Hello Kitty bandaids. I'm not going to show her or I'll get another earful about it. :)
