Ah, June. We so reveled in getting back to normal life. Having everyone home under one roof, and being able to do normal things together seemed like such a crazy privilege. Even now, months later, I still don't take for granted our health and ability to do normal things together.
Of course, the very first place we went together was to the beach.
And then we went to the beach again. Two weeks after Katie came home from the hospital, Mark got an unexpected week off from work, so we took a quick family trip to Avila Beach near San Luis Obispo.
And after we came home from a week at the beach, we went back to the beach. Because I was simply in need of a lot of peace and sunshine!
The boys went a week at Redwood Camp in Santa Cruz, their very first sleep-away camp. We were a bit nervous about them being away for so long. But when we picked them up it was clear they had an amazing time, and they can't wait to go back next year.
Not beach-related, we made the girls a bunk bed. The room that they share was getting way too cramped with a crib and a toddler bed, so this seemed like the perfect solution. It's been four months and it's been working out great.
