Had to squeeze in a visit to the whale bones since this was the last trip to the beach for all of us together.
We've been visiting these bones for a long time. I think I have a photo of J and K standing under these whale bones from the time they were wee little ones.
This year we brought along a sombrero. K had it in the back of her trunk. Along with a couple pair of heels. She's a party to go, that one.
As soon as J saw that sombrero, I knew it was all over.
They love pictures like this. You know, ones that show how much they all love each other?
I love E's face in these photos. She can't look crazy even when she tries.
That's more like it.
Personal accomplishment this weekend...I finally read "Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone" after all these years.
I've been getting a lot of grief this summer from my children and my nieces about being a librarian and not having read this book so I figured it was time to tackle it. I tried reading it when the book first came out and found it to be a simple children's story. It did not hold my interest.
I couldn't get into it. At all.
I got halfway through and put it down, abandoning it. Fast forward many years later and I'm almost embarrassed that I haven't read it, it's that popular. So after much ballyhoo and trash talk, I picked it up this weekend and tried again.
This time around? I liked it. Go figure.
