31 of 52

Forever In Blue Jeans

What an incredible and busy time it's been. As soon as the boxes were unpacked in our new house we packed up the suitcases and headed to Disneyland. Phew, it's all been so exciting and tiring at the same time. After Disney, Lineman and my mom flew back home to Montana while I stayed a bit longer so the boys could see Papa and Grandma. The boys had an absolute blast at the beach. Little Man is FEARLESS. I was exhausted from keeping him under control at the beach. And the emotional toll of worrying about the older boys. I don't know how parents get through a day at the beach. The entire time I was worried about the rip tides pulling the boys out. We did have a ton of fun and it was worth it!

Disneyland was wonderfully fun and I'll have pictures as soon as I get home. For now I'm with my mom through the weekend and then we'll head back home. Then I'll take a long nap and try to recover!

My sincerest apologies about the Mr. Linky the last two weeks. I contacted them before my trip and they said it would be fixed. Oops, guess not. Sooooo, I'm giving Mck Linky a try, I'm crossing my fingers.

It's funny how exhausting (and fun) a vacation can be with little kids. Our little boy is fearless of water, which keeps me hopping at the lake :)

I hear ya on the beach with the kids. This summer it was a challenge to keep 3 of them safe but yet still allowing them to have fun & feel independent. Stunt Man is fearless too...so I can relate.
Loved the expression on your faces. Great picture.

I love that photo! Sounds like it was a good trip...but I totally hear you on the worry that happens at the beach.

Alicia said...

Great picture again! I know what you mean about the beach. I do not feel comfortable taking my kids there alone. I hear of too many sudden drownings! Scary!

Can't wait to see your Disney pics!

Sharon said...

Looks like a blast. I have never been in the ocean. :( I saw it but it was way too cold to put a toe in.

Phoenix said...

I am so glad you all had a great time! I hope your move goes well and it all works out! :)

Robyn said...

Looks like a wonderful time. I'm not sure why we call them vacations, sometimes they can be more tiring than being at home.

Shasta said...

It sounds like a really, really fun time! I'm jealous!!

I can't wait to see all of your pictures and the picture in the ocean is great!! So glad you had such a wonderful time!

Clair said...

That is one fantastic shot. I know how you feel, one week of camping by the beach and i'm shot with the strain! I guess we're just not familiar with it and comfortable with our kids knowledge like in their own backyards!!!

christy rose said...

Wow! You have been busy! But I am sure the memories you are making are worth every minute!

Andrea said...

Great beach shot! I absolutely love your expression. I agree about taking kids to the beach. My butt never once sat down in the sand to "relax". If you have a sec check out my beach pics from last week.

Sounds like you had a great time and the picture says so much!! Adorable picture!

The beach... so peaceful and calming... unless you have children along and your children are in the roaring waves too far away to hear you yell to them, drifting down the coast and out to sea because they're having too much fun to realize the dangers. I love this fun picture of you, though... looks like you were able to enjoy it even while worrying.

Cathy said...

Hey lady! Glad you are moved in and the "vacation" went well. :) I was just thinking about you on my way home tonight and wondering how things were going. Give me a call when you are able; I can't wait to catch up!

Denise said...

Sounds like a busy but fun time for you all.

Kate said...

Carin,
I absolutely love this picture. You look like you are having SO much fun, and I love how the wave is pretty much engulfing your little boy. :)
My boys would love all that water and sand.
