We went to the beach!! I am fortunate to feel a part of the Heath family, and they include me on their annual trip to Assateague Island. It looked like we might not get to go this year because of Hurricane Earl, but he passed over the shore on Friday and we were still able to check in on Saturday, September 3. It was far too short, but still a wonderful weekend away with some truly wonderful people. This year it was just myself and the girls and that had it's own challenges. I wouldn't have been able to do it without the extended family, so with great thanks to them fun could be had.
Evi was thrilled to be with Mia and Shelby and I was thrilled to be with Evin and her family! Evi ended up sleeping in the tent with her best buds and the three of them were all giggles about camping together. The fact that Jamie decided to wake up at 5:20am each day with Evi waking shortly after was quite bearable considering my company :).
I really do have a beach bum for a daughter, and I love that. She could spend all day playing in the sand and water and that is just fine with me.
I am sad to see the end of summer, but I'm so glad we got to enjoy our last summer days at the beach with my second family!
