It wouldn’t be July if we didn’t do Coronado! Even when it’s just for a few days, it’s always good.
I absolutely love sitting on the beach and hearing someone shout your name! I love running into friends and having the down time to actually sit and talk.
Cousins being cute in matching jammies.
I love this picture. It’s still the lock screen on my phone. Just watching waves, enjoying a snack in peace and quiet.
Ok the seaweed was a little gross…but the people were cute!
The famous beach lobster boil. It’s still talked about in hushed, reverent tones.
We took a vote, s’mores are better on the beach
Coronado is always the last hurrah of summer. Then there’s the dreaded 10 days before school starts where everyone is bored, tired of swimming and there are no camps. It’s a rough time. But thankfully we get to celebrate the best fur buddy anyone has ever had! Happy 4th birthday Mac!
Ah the first day of school. So much fun, so many nerves! 2nd grade and PreK.
The total solar eclipse was on August 21st. It’s the first time in years that a total solar eclipse was visible in North America. I remember the last one – we went downtown to the science center and looked through all their glasses and instruments to see it. The kid’s school deemed it “unsafe” and vowed to keep everyone indoors for the entire event. I tried to get enough glasses for at least one class at a time to see it, but apparently that was unsafe too…so instead I got doughnuts, sprung the kids from class and we had our own viewing party with friends in the parking lot! It was amazing – totally worth potentially damaging our retinas forever.
It was also August in Phoenix. It was stupid hot, as you can tell by Auggie’s face.
