First Beach Day

I'm usually at the beach way earlier in the season . . .

. . . but this year, because of circumstances that were extenuating . . .

. . . Saturday was my first Beach Day.

How was it, you ask?

Oh, it was pretty great.

Ocean Beach knows how to be extenuating.

And no, I have no idea what that means.

Happy Summer, my peeps!

this kid

It was a birthday week around these here parts, and although I'm not supposed to wantonly blog about my kids now that they're old deserve privacy or whatever, I've just got to say that this kid? This one right here? 

She's a force to be reckoned with.

Happy 15th birthday, my baby YaYa. I love you big.

My girl is fast and strong. She can climb and run like nobody's business. So I wasn't surprised when she scored a place on her class's end-of-the-year baton relay team.

The race pitted all classes in each grade against each other.

My girl's class took the first grade prize.

And she did her part.

But it's not so hard to win when you are actually flying ;)
