I had every intention of having a regular “weekend” post for today! But…I left my camera battery in the charger and didn’t realize it until I pulled out my camera, on the picturesque Hudson river, ready to shoot a little, only to figure out my oversight. So, my poor instagram followers were slammed with a stream of instagrams that would have otherwise been proper shots posted here. I often feel bad for the brave souls following me on instagram.
Instead, I spent some time today organizing and editing the beach photos that I am still working through. :) So, I’ll share that.
My parents rent a beach house on the Jersey Shore every summer for two weeks. My brother’s family comes for one week, my sister’s family for the other…and my branch usually overlaps with both families by going from Wednesday to Wednesday. So, I am now at the beach photos that feature my sister’s family!
My sister has three kids, shown above.
The middle one has hair so red we wonder if Isaac really qualifies as a redhead next to her. :) Andrew, certainly, does not.
The youngest one forgot her teeth.
And the oldest one, although ready to enter high school in the fall, still hasn’t developed a teenage-edge to him. At least from what I’ve seen. He’s still as sweet as can be. Maybe he just needs another year. ;)
And although the players changed, the game remains the same. Days at the beach, nights on the boardwalk.
Isaac and I spent some time this day drawing his Chicka Chicka Boom Boom tree in the sand.
His cousins had different sandy exploits in mind.
That afternoon, the Rice branch of the family, decided to do a little mini golfing.
And that evening, we went up on the boardwalk. At one point we waited for my parents on benches outside of a store they were in.
And we waited…
and waited…only to find out that they actually were not in that store at all, but had
snuck gone back to the beach house without us. Not sure why, when they were with such a charming crowd…
I’m telling ya. You never know what you’re going to miss out on.
Hope you all had wonderful weekends with charged and present camera batteries!
