I've realized that the impromptu times we go to the beach are the most fun with our three boys. Where we don't plan anything, don't bring anything, just hop in the car, head on over (it's a 5 minute drive) and let the kids run around with no expectations, it's the most fun. Tonight was the same. We could've stayed longer if it wasn't getting cold out. The water was extremely warm, calm, clear and green. I dressed the boys in jeans and white tees, also with their Boston Red Sox hats, which was fitting because their names begin with a B so the matching outfit made sense. Yes, deep down I was hoping for an impromptu photo session. I even brought popsicles to make sure they would sit still together. I think these speak for themselves. They came out adorable.
We decided to stay home this Thanksgiving and not travel. And I am completely fine about it. Check out my blog post about why we are staying home over at http://www.destin30amomsblog.com.
This is the first Thanksgiving my dad is not here, and it's hitting me pretty hard. I don't ever think it gets easier. I actually continue to think it's getting harder. But I know my dad would look right at me and say, I have three big reasons to be thankful and they are right here in these photos. And I agree.
Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours.
