the weather this summer has been so weird typical. hardly any fine sunny days, loads of dark and rainy days. there are even days when its both those things! four seasons in four hours? yes, indeed. this week was an exception though. late last week was absolutely fantastic (thursday-half of saturday). early this week was absolutely atrocious (tuesday-present). here are some photos of those occasions!


this day was INSANE. the nicest weather i've seen in this summer so far. so we picked up the quilt, grabbed a few chew toys (had to go back for some spf and a hat a little later, can you believe it!?) then we hit the beach! (well, we stayed up on the grass, willow has yet to go in the atlantic. i wanted to wait for her pops to be around for that experience. everyone has a photo of baby feet first touching the ocean. thats a thing right? but boy, was i tempted!). anyway, this day was just dreamy. i mean, there were ladies in bikinis, their kids playing in the sand. and chubby little french boys in the water! i seriously closed my eyes and pretended i was in france for a second, hearing the splashing of the waves and feeling the glorious warm sun, not hiding behind a single cloud. it certainly helped the daydream with the boys in the water speaking french and all. and all this was right outside my front door! it was just glorious.


(note: these pictures constitute a great majority of our days. not just this tuesday. but it was especially rotten outside, and since we had a few such lovely days earlier, willow was a bit more nostalgic)

this day was, like i said, especially atrocious. there was wind like i have never seen! the house was whistling with all sorts of creepy noises! and the rain? well, lets just say we had a moat around our house again. although that is a current affair lately...must check those drains. anyway, again, willow was feeling very sad by the terribleness of the outside. she gets very bored and fidgety if she has to stay in all day. so i set her up in front of every window in the house, on rotation, and opened those windows a time or two, so she can feel the wind and rain on her sweet little face. she liked it. i think. it was the best i could do!

well, heres to hoping that we will have more days like the first, and less like the second! maybe we'll get around to a swim in the atlantic if we're lucky. as of right now? this is outside...
