almost weekend

it's thursday.
it's 101 degrees outside.
on thursday, our thoughts turn to the weekend.
ah, the weekend.
we leave the IE behind in a cloud of dust and head towards the coast thursday night or friday morning to play at the beach friday and saturday. and then we return home sunday morning to go to church.
last saturday was one of those great summer weekend days. luke went surfing early at DMJ's and the girls and i meet him at churches on his way home. it was sunny, warm and the surf was really fun. we meet up with our BF'S 4 L the blacks and stayed at the beach all day, the big girls boogie boarded all by themselves all afternoon, they all ran around and growled at each other, i got sunburned, kids ate ridiculous amounts of food/snacks, had some good conversation, and surfed in super warm water. when we had our fill we loaded up all our junk and children (for whom we forgot things like clothes and underwear- hence swim diapers and such) and headed for pedro's- bean and cheese burrit's, some rice, quesadilla and lemonade. and stopped at the benches about t-street to eat while our children ran around growling at each other.
ah, the weekend.
it's almost here, can you feel it?

Velzy has the skinniest legs! The other day someone was saying how they though Ivy and Brooklyn look alike, but looking at the picture, I think she might look more like Kardiff. I have solid kids! Cute picture and I know what you mean about this crazy weather. Way too hot!

I love that there is a second generation Ashley. Really. They couldn't be any cuter and whatever vintage-wash these photos are in make them even better.
