The boys and I, along with Grannie spent a lovely long summer day at the beach last weekend. It is always so great to be back at the ocean. Even though I haven't lived on the coast in years, having grown up on one, it feels so right to be on the beach, hearing the crash of the waves, smelling the salty air and feeling the warm sand between my toes. And the boys just adore it- being wet, sandy and salty all day feels just right to them too. Hopefully this will be just the first of many beach days we enjoy this summer...especially since we are now a cast free zone!!! We had our last visit with the orthopedic doc a few days ago and they sawed that cast right off Sam's arm and gave him the green light for normal activities. Woo hoo! Let the swimming begin!
