Been a little behind on blogging for two important reasons. First, the WordPress app has been messing up and I’ve had to retype (which means thumb typing on a cell phone) each entry at least 5-6 times. And secondly, and perhaps the most important, we have sunshine and have been outside enjoying it.
The first two days here were a little less than desirable. Lots of rain and wind.

Hanging out in the camper listening to the rain. I ask Jake to take a picture with me and this is what I get.

Bad news was it rained. And rained. And rained. Good news is lots of water and tadpoles in the ditch near us. The tadpoles are probably a mutant variety that survive on fecal matter and pesticide runoff.

The sun started to peek a little from behind the clouds on Tuesday. We were patiently (with a smile and eyes open) waiting its arrival.

This kid is on a 2 hour feeding schedule. He’s either eating, trying to find something to eat, complaining about finding something to eat or sleeping. He needs a part time job to help out wirh groceries. Goodness gracious…

The beach side has been gorgeous. The sea wall has been blocking the breeze and it’s been perfection.

These pictures will be suicide prevention next January. Honestly lets hope we don’t hace another winter like this past one for a while.

The beach directly behind our camper. Love it.

Jake and Matt have matching boats.  Jake captains the Explorer 100, Matt has the Explorer 200. I think it’s kind of cute.

Jake wanted us to bury him in the sand yesterday. He was a good sport until he got hungry again.

Jake decided he wanted to try out the pool. He’s been bugging us since the day we got here. It’s not heated so we kept telling him it would be way too cold but he is obviously much wiser than his parents nowadays. (Seriously I’ve noticed how stupid Matt and I have become lately. Thank goodness we have Jake & all of his infinite wisdom)  Jake jumped into the pool, surfaced and said “let’s just go back to the beach”  I knew it must be freezing if even a hard headed ten year old couldn’t tough it out.

The evenings have been chilly but beautiful. We usually sit out on the deck and watch the sunset…and nurse our sun burns. Matt’s face was putting off enough heat the other night to roast marshmallows.

Sunset view from our campsite deck.

Its a beautiful morning this morning. Can’t wait to get outside.
