It's Hard to be a Beach...











....With days like today. Just look at this beautiful sky! The weather was glorious. The sun was setting while my kids joyously dug tunnels in the sand. There was no fighting. No screaming. If there was, I couldn't hear it over the crash of the waves anyway.

With Rex out of town, Topanga T and her fiance' joined us last minute (just three weeks before the big Italian wedding). They brought their puppies - endless sources of amusement for my own little mutts.
After splashing in the water, Stink found some sunglasses and Pip found a pink headband. Forget God's landscape - Pip has accessories! The day, very unplanned, couldn't have been nicer.

Well, one thing could have been nicer. I could have walked up the steps to my fabulous pink BEACH HOUSE instead of dragging my sand encrusted butt into my stinky SUV to head back to Smog Land.

Other than that. I'm not bitter. Someone has to live in paradise. My only consolation? I get a view of my kids each day. Let some Hollywood rich folk have the ocean, the sunsets, the dolphins splashing in the waves, the smell of the salt air the... the... Okay, I better stop before I see where I can sell toddlers online to buy some beach front property.

Hope you had a great weekend. I owe many of your sites visits. I'll be there tomorrow. Unless it's sunny and I ditch you for the ocean again. Hey, life's a beach.

That is one of the things I miss most about California - spending the weekend at the beach.

Thank you for visiting. It is actually the ADHD which gets on my nerves the most. The intrusional thoughts and the tics I can easily live with. The bouncing off the walls and endless chatter, etc. that go with ADHD are so hard, especially when he is stressed and those symptoms are more prevalent. Yes, we will have him tested for food allergies. Thank you!

I blame my tank of gas and sunburn on you....

What gorgeous pictures! I'm a bit partial to wild Oregon beaches, but really the ocean is breathtaking no matter which state you see it from - not to mention your adorable kids.
