Idyllic Day at the Beach

Would you just look at this gorgeous little family posing so nicely on a pier at the beach. The sun is shining and everyone is looking rapturously happy. "Picturesque" is the only way to describe this wonderful vision of family unity and harmony.........

Even the starfish were calm and serene, laying quietly on the shallow rocks by the shore!

The Wee One was angelic and content as we strolled along together, holding hands and enjoying each other's company.


Look at the Big Guy posing happily for this idyllic ocean side photo........

while the crabs were lazily walking along the sand. The seagulls swooped down low over the water....

and we all watched our reflections ripple calmly on the surface.

It all looks so perfect, doesn't it?!

In actual FACT, the reality of this little outing is as follows:

1. This was the only 1 hour of sunshine we've seen in months.
2. Danny Boneduce was being very cranky because I FORCED him to come along.
3. The Wee One needed a diaper change and gramma forgot her diapers

.........and did I mention, this was the ONLY sun we've seen in months?!

Personally, I perfer the idyllic version of events as mention in the beginning of this post. It's just so much more satisfying, don't you think?

Fortunately, regardless of the crankiness of certain family members and the odor from others, we had a great time soaking in a few rays of sun and munching on a dinner of fish and chips.

Now, if only the SUN would come out again, I would organize an outing to the LAKE!

What do you say, Wee One?! Are you up for it? I promise not to forget your diapers this time.

how to solve forgotten diaper issue: find bathroom that has paper towel dispenser. Fashion diaper out of paper towel, lots of paper towel. They're absorbent you know ;-)
We've had a less than stellar weather pattern lately too, the last two days have been sunny and there is sun in our forecast.

Mmmmm.... fish and chips.
What? there was more to this post?

Very cute! all family outings have their "dark sides" I think. Love the picture with the Wee One's leg thru the hole in the table. Very creative baby restraint!

Looks like we switched locations for the day. I was out your way, and forgot where the nursery was, and you were here at my beach.

Yes, it was the only hour of sunshine, but we are getting much more soon.

Sounds like despite it all, you did have a good time.
