impromptu atlantic playdate

21 07 2009

funny how 5 and 1/2 weeks seems like the longest time and certainly ample time to see everyone and do everything we would like… it is not and we have been throwing together plans the morning we make them happen. we have not been able to make it work with all, but luckily stephanie was able to meet up with us on such short notice. her boys are gorgeous and spunky and stephanie is a delight.

with just enough quarters for 2 hours of parking, we had a blast on our quick trip to the beach.

luckily clover enjoyed the novelty of being in a different stroller enough that she never noticed that she missed out on playing in the sand.

kieran was a nice boy and sat right where we put him.

gemma just got covered in sand instead of water.

then began the spectacle of getting 5 kids and 2 strollers (one of which was never ever intended to go anywhere near sand) 3 cameras and assorted toys back up to the boardwalk…

all the while keeping the language clean.
