Beach bums: our summer vacation

Our vacation to southern California really did feel the way these photos look.  Calm, Peaceful and full of love. It was absolutely a dream.  
I'd love to write stories about how john and I jumped and body-surfed waves until we were more physically exhausted than I've been in years.  Or about how I sternly talked to a little boy (whom I really wanted to punch) when he was rude to Redding (and now I'm absolutely terrified to proceed with parenting).  But, I'm afraid after our two day drive, my brain is complete fluff. 

I couldn't help but be reminded of our beach trip last summer, which after rereading, still sums up my life pretty perfectly.  Although, I have to admit, we have it much more together now. So anyone trying to travel gracefully with a baby, just give up (!)  It can't be done, but don't worry, you'll be able to soon!

Lots and Lots of LOVE!
