When we were away last week, we had an impromptu picnic at the beach, complete with take-out...Panera for the kids, twin lobster rolls for Mom and Dad.
I actually prefer the beach at this time...it's so peaceful when the crowds are gone.
Little Miss had her own dance party.
And then E had to climb the lifeguard chair (of course-he's part monkey).
It was a lovely evening at the beach.
To go out with the setting sun on an empty beach is to truly embrace your solitude.
(of course this was not the case with two rambunctious kids, but one can imagine...)
