First day at the beach… and a red-ish dress.
At 11:15 yesterday morning I realized the beach was probably opened for the season… so after a quick phone call to double check – we packed up quickly (and I mean quickly — the kids were crazy excited to be heading to the beach!) made a quick stop at the local bakery for lunch (the lazy picnic — but it was either that or skipping it all together for today!) and headed out for a picnic/afternoon at the beach!
Hours of happy playing. I swear — beautiful spring/summer days at the beach are probably one of my absolute favorite things about being a stay at home mom. The fact that we can follow the weather is priceless, really.
And… while they happily played I weaved in the many ends of Elizabeth’s new summer dress – which means I managed to snap a few photos at the beach! I was oh-so-happy with this dress… but now that it’s finished, it weighs too much and it doesn’t fit her properly… I will attempt to stitch it a bit or put in a few buttons to see if I can help it — because as it is now, Elizabeth wouldn’t be able to wear it out without a shirt underneath — she’s forever trying to pull it back up and she only wore it for about 6 minutes so far! Regardless – it looks stunning on her in the photos!
