23 May Gone Baby Gone
Posted at 18:12h in Uncategorized 33 Comments
Since I am about out the door for an adventure filled holiday weekend with 12 10-year-olds at Surf Camp (yes we’ve had thundershowers for 24 hours now, oh joy) I thought I’d post my Best Shot Monday today! I won’t be home until Monday afternoon (unless of course we get rained out) so we’ll just call this a Best Shot weekend!
After reading the Parent Bloggers Blog Blast prompt, I got all weepy and nostalgic about the days when I’d take my daughters to the beach when they were babies. Sunhats and big bottomed bikinis stuffed with swim diapers are a thing of the past for this family-she says half heartbroken and half with a sigh of relief-but our beach excursions will hopefully go on and on.
Even though the chance of thunderstorms will be in effect through this holiday weekend, I am still going to post an ode to my favorite place in all the world…the beach.
May you all enjoy your weekend, whatever it may hold.

Nothing better than the beach – even if it is stormy. I bet the weather will make for some great photos 🙂

I love the blue stripes in that cute beach shot. Have a great time!
This is a multiple-shot post for me – indulgent, I know –

I’m skipping out this week, but still wanted to stop by to wish you a happy memorial day – and to say I LOVE that picture!!!
AlliePosted at 04:30h, 26 May
OK, I’m back. It’s been a long road these last nine months since my last post, but I’m ready to jump back in. Wishing everyone a happy Memorial Day. . .

Oh baby, you are so making me want o move to the beach instead of back to the mountains.
The blues of this shot are beautiful…so is she. 🙂

I love the beach! Unfortunately my husband doesn’t care for the local beach, so we’ve only been once since we’ve been married (almost 6 years!) Isn’t that sad?

I love the hands on the hips of your older daughter! The beach is my favorite place, too. We were lucky enough to visit one this weekend as well, although we had to bundle up a bit more! I can’t wait to hear how surf camp went! Where did you do it and how fun!!

I grew up near the beach and it is my absolute fav place to be. But since I now (unfortunately) live in a big city, I find it harder to find a favorite place to photograph.
