So yeah, we went to the beach

in family

An outing. As a family. A so-called “family outing” if you will. Caira collected a bunch of shells, Garrett did a fantastic slow-motion dive into a thistle patch while chasing sheep and Mariah muttered something about “contented” while we watched the sun sink into the North Atlantic ocean as a family.

It was fun, really fun. The kids had their first encounter with the feared Portuguese man o’ war while they soaked up the glorious surf and sunset, I had some great play with Instagram and practice taking photographs (I’m rusty).
