And Just LIke That . . .

. . . it's summer.


Summer's supposed to arrive on Memorial Day. And this year? It did.

And there is only one thing to do at a time like this.

Go to the beach.

And so we did.

It was just as it should be: The girls frolicked on the rocks . . .

. . . as girls do.

The boys walked and talked and traded secrets . . .

. . . as boys do.

And Ledgie watched a gigantic Tanker steam by . . .

. . . as Ledgies do.

And us?

Well, after the beach we hit our deck, as we do. And then, as the sun moved off the deck, we hit our Westy . . .

. . . for the last remnants of sun . . .

. . . as we do.

And then we Hopped, Skipped, and Got Naked*.

*Pour one can frozen lemonade in a pitcher. Fill the empty can with vodka and add to pitcher. Pour in 3 Coronas. Stir. Pour over tons of ice and have yourself a lovely afternoon.

Happy Summer!

Aw, hooray! Cracking up at the blinding whiteness of everyone at the beach. Bet the stores sold out of SPF 70 :)

Enjoy, you've earned it!

So glad the sun complied with the memorial day weekend deadline. It's been a long time coming, for sure. You made it!!

And those drinks? They look devine!

From my sister Jane, who introduced us to the delightful world of Hop, Skip and Go Nakeds:

Ellie - Hop Skips call for FOUR beers, not three! And you can add any beer, of course.

Or so she claims.
