A Wee Vacation

We just got back from four days at the beach! It was so much fun, and very needed.

Before I tell you about our trip I just wanted to say WOW!  I was so surprised to get back to so many comments & entries on the giveaway post, and all the new fans on Facebook. Welcome to my new followers, new fans, and thank you all so much for all the love and well wishes. I will be holding more giveaways after this one over the next few weeks so be sure to check back! And if you haven't entered already, you can still enter the Lip Balm Giveaway until Thursday night!

This is Munchie after we had been in camp for 20 minutes. He was happy.

The original plan was to leave Friday and stay at a rented beach house with my family, but at the very last minute (and by last minute I mean 4 o'clock on Wednesday!) Ben was able to get Thursday off as well so we packed up the tent and went camping for one night before meeting up with everyone else. It was so much fun having a spur of the moment camping trip! We cooked hot dogs on skewers and roasted marshmallows and had s'mores, and after the kids went to bed Ben and I sat next to the fire and enjoyed the stars and sound of the waves.

Since my family wasn't supposed to get into town until afternoon on Friday, we had a lot of time to kill Friday morning.

We broke camp at 8 and went out to breakfast. Then we wandered the beaches. This is the first time Munchie has ever seen the beach.

Ben taught the big boys how to skip rocks...

Jack found a heart rock for me...

I found random rock art...

Then we went up to the bluffs above the beach and took a hike around and down to a little cove on a hunt for tidepools...

Munch in the backpack. I have been a bright-red head for 4 weeks and I am LOVING it. :D

After we were all completely worn out and slightly sunburned from our nature morning, we went out to fish n' chips for lunch, then to a little park at the end of the bay that Ben and I used to go to when we were little.

It has a cement pirate ship which has been there for as long as we can remember. It's awesome.

The rest of the weekend was spent with family, the big men went deep sea fishing, and we had a delicious BBQ Saturday night. Very nice and relaxing. And the weather was fantastic!

I finished sewing up the stocking. Just need to put on the little sparklies and things.

I found this really cute fabric at an adorable little fabric store that mom and I went to. Seriously cute little store. I wish I could live in it. This will probably become a new dress.

I came home to a pile of business related mail and a box of goodies - lip balm and lotion bar tubes and ingredients. I have another box coming tomorrow with more goodies!

We are officially signed up for the Craft Faire in October. I hope those who are able to will come down and visit us that day!

Happy Monday,

Meg, that sounds like such a great weekend. The boys will have made lovely memories. I could hardly believe that was Munchie in the picture. He is getting huge!
PS. Loving the red hair
