Thankfully, summer is finally coming to an end
and we've gotten our first taste of fall this week!
Now it's in the 70s-80s... still kinda hot,
but much better than before!
Tuesday we decided to go to the beach for a while.
The weather was actually very nice at the ocean!
This is the first time we saw this...
The Marines drove right from the ocean
onto the shore in this! Very neat to watch!
The younger children enjoyed getting wet
and mom and I stayed by the shore as well...
... Will, Carolynne, & Beth
Then we all sat down and the children played in the sand...
And I thought it would be fun to bury a toy frog :)
And speaking of frog, Monday the children ran upstairs
to me saying, "Something you like is stuck outside! Come see!"
I went out and saw this poor thing...
I looove toads :)
So I helped him out...
As mom said, we don't think this was my prince charming,
so I decided it best not to kiss him ;)
Also, Tuesday I helped Will with a science experiment :)
It's so weird to think he's in 6th grade... doing experiments!
I remember when I was there!!
Anyway, tomorrow is Friday, the 'friend day',
when our friends (we've known 8 years now) come for pizza.
It's going to be their middle child's 12th bday,
so I helped the children blow up balloons
and set them up in order to surprise her tomorrow...
The kids were laughing at how big I liked to blow mine
and were calling them 'zucchini balloons' because of their shape :)
I hope everyone's enjoying their end of summer!
