Float on

Our house is in complete disarray: summer clothes are piled on top of one another, flip flops stacked in the corner and all the sunblock is bagged up.

Nope, we’re not putting our summer gear away just yet.  Actually, while everyone is busy buying sweaters and boots for the new school year, we’re packing up for our summer vacation.  And people, we can’t wait!!!!  It’s been a long and super busy summer!

In addition to orchestrating the shopping and packing for the three of us, I’ve been working on scheduled posts for NKT on top of doing some Matron of Honor tasks for my cousin, Kris’ wedding—the main reason we’re all trekking to Hawaii again!  Oh, but that’s not all, during our super busy week of vacation, I have quite a few family-friendly Hawaii story ideas that I plan to compose.  That’s right, in the midst of all the wedding fun and family craziness, I’ll try to drag Jeff, Jack and any other family member along to check out the latest restaurants and sites in Oahu, all in the name of my writing pursuits.  Tough life, I know.

So, we’ll see what we’ll have time for, because, y’know, the main objective is celebrating my cousin’s wedding and then of course, reeeelaxing!

With plenty of beach time and pool time in mind, we got him a floatsuit, which is very similar to what his cousins had when they were little.  Not only are we excited, but so is our water-loving buddy! haha.

WW: Beach boys

Beach Boys

Literally growing up at the beach, I envision the kid sharing the same love both Jeff and I have for the surf and sand. Like some parents drop off their kids at the mall, our parents dropped us off at the beach—all summer long. Oh, the memories.

Even though it isn’t quite the same as back home, LBI is still breathtaking and relaxing, especially without all the tourists. I love the beach in the offseason–the uncrowded beaches, barren boardwalk, undisturbed sand and landscape, gentle waves, cool breezes and the gorgeous weather. Everything always seems so untouched and completely brand new, especially in the early morning daylight, just like in this picture.

Living so far away from family, it’s always nice of Jeff’s uncle and family to include us in special weekends like this. (a big, huge thank you as always, guys!) And though they may not agree right now, the good times our kids have together are absolutely priceless.

For a quick second, I’m rethinking this whole city living thing.  But then again, the beach is always nice to visit.

Ok, second’s over :)
