Gone Baby Gone

Since I am about out the door for an adventure filled holiday weekend with 12 10-year-olds at Surf Camp (yes we've had thundershowers for 24 hours now, oh joy) I thought I'd post my Best Shot Monday today! I won't be home until Monday afternoon (unless of course we get rained out) so we'll just call this a Best Shot weekend!


After reading the Parent Bloggers Blog Blast prompt, I got all weepy and nostalgic about the days when I'd take my daughters to the beach when they were babies. Sunhats and big bottomed bikinis stuffed with swim diapers are a thing of the past for this family-she says half heartbroken and half with a sigh of relief-but our beach excursions will hopefully go on and on.

Even though the chance of thunderstorms will be in effect through this holiday weekend, I am still going to post an ode to my favorite place in all the world...the beach.



May you all enjoy your weekend, whatever it may hold.

Nothing better than the beach - even if it is stormy. I bet the weather will make for some great photos :)

OK, I'm back. It's been a long road these last nine months since my last post, but I'm ready to jump back in. Wishing everyone a happy Memorial Day. . .

The blues of this shot are beautiful...so is she. :)

I love the beach! Unfortunately my husband doesn't care for the local beach, so we've only been once since we've been married (almost 6 years!) Isn't that sad?

BSM: Brother and sister at the new park

I love the hands on the hips of your older daughter! The beach is my favorite place, too. We were lucky enough to visit one this weekend as well, although we had to bundle up a bit more! I can't wait to hear how surf camp went! Where did you do it and how fun!!

Our beach holiday BSM is up, too.

Can't wait to hear about your weekend.

Just a comment about your WiiFit party: we got our WiiFit this week and LOVE it.

My MBS is up. Love of Leaves

Maya said...

I so wish we had a beach near us! I'm very jealous, thunderstorms or not!

Here's mine this week.

Sara said...

Hope you have fun, how awesome!

we got soaked!

Christine said...

I grew up near the beach and it is my absolute fav place to be. But since I now (unfortunately) live in a big city, I find it harder to find a favorite place to photograph.

So here is mine >

and here is my (unrelated) BSM >
