So, we just returned from an extended weekend at the NC coast, hence the break in blog posts, and it turned out to be a costlier vacation than we anticipated. Not only did my poor hubby manage to crush Finn's backpack carrier in the trunk to the point of unuse, but our dear Canon which takes all my blog post pics, somehow bit the dust (literally I'm afraid) at the beach and is now only taking half-pictures, which might be an art form in and of itself, but frankly, I don't have the time to figure out what kind of cool shots it might make. A visit to the camera shop is in order, I suppose to see if it is at all salvagable, but we aren't holding our breath too deeply.
On the brighter side, everyone in the family had fun, and although I'll probably break the details of the trip into several posts, I just wanted to share my favorite pictures of each of the kids from the trip (before the camera broke...sigh...)
The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach.
