|Long Beach, Washington|
We've been extremely busy with "life"...rounding out our school year, counting hours and recording grades, forecasting for fall classes at the community college for two of our 3 left at home, testing (state requirement), planting a garden, saying goodbye to a dear part of our family on this farm, planning a wedding for our son and his beautiful bride and celebrating that bride with a couple of bridal showers. Life has been non stop for weeks!
For Mother's Day, my husband surprised me with a trip to the Washington Coast. He knows me SO well! I had secretly wanted to spend a day at he ocean, but didn't dare mention it...Wade has been working so many long hours and has only had one day off a week most weeks. A trip to the beach would have been a full day away from home...but I really wanted to get my toes in the sand and the ocean!
The weather was beautiful! Sunshine and not too cold, but very windy...perfect kite flying weather, if we'd remembered to grab the kites. I was one happy mama, getting to put my toes in the sand and that beautiful ocean water. There is just something soothing about the ocean...taking a little bit of the stress of life away with each wave.

Before we headed down to the sand, we walked the boardwalk. It was a nice walk with the kids...we missed Anthony and Rachael...maybe next time. :)

I could have spent days at the ocean, but the few hours we did spend were wonderfully refreshing. I was one happy mama!
