Family Time At The Beach


It’s been a great summer. One of the things I’ve loved most about this summer is that we had family and friends visiting. This included lots of traveling, including the ocean, my personal happy place. We particularly enjoyed taking beach walks and swimming. My favorite memory this summer was sharing this time with Jaxson (my youngest son) and discovering that it is a happy time at the beach for him, too.

Of course, we enjoyed the beach all day long, but those early morning and after dinner walks were special. Kingston and Jaxson walked, ran, threw rocks and stood letting the waves crash on their ankles for longer than they ever seem to stand still these days. It was a favorite summer moment and one I hope to repeat for many years to come.

    That’s nice that you have such fun memories of summer break and you had family and friends to visit. You and your son look so happy. Your swim wear is very pretty and love all your picks – the third one is my favourite!

    I’d love to live closer to the beach. There’s something so peaceful and relaxing and solitary about walking the beach – even when you’re with someone (or little someones who never stop moving). You look so beautiful in that swimsuit and the boys are just darling! I’m so glad you had a wonderful time. Life is all about creating those memories.
