Beach trip 2010.
We stayed just across the street from the house that we rented two years ago when I had just found out we were expecting twins. I kept being hit with memories of the shock we were still feeling at that time and the panic of what was to come...and now, two years later, here were those "babies", running all over the place, as if they always had been. How does that happen?
It was a wonderful week!
The opportunity to rest and relax...the warmth of the sand between your toes, the scent and the gentle mist of salt in the air, the sound of the gulls, the sight of pelicans gliding gently overhead, the sound of the laughter of babies and cousins, the squeals of delight as cool water meets little toes, the feel of a sun-warmed paperback book in your hands, an evening walk through town for frozen custard, the luxury of dinner out with my siblings and my love. The memory of these moments shall be held in our hearts until we gather, once again, by the seaside.
