Life's a Beach

Today we had to leave the house by 10:30 because the house was being shown. We cleaned up, dropped Mikaela off at work, went to Costco, ate lunch, got gas (it was only $3.99/gallon) Traded with my WONDERFUL friend Tami for the stuff she got me at Cash n Carry, Then I headed home, put stuff in the fridge, and freezer grabbed swimsuits and headed to the beach!! We met Jessica, Jake, Savannah, Sybell and her girls +2 and Tami came with Everett and Isobell.
Although it was not 80 degrees the children all played wonderfully. They kept eating and eating. I fed them lunch at Costco but they ate all the double batch of homemade granola bars, a whole loaf of PB&J sandwiches, some bananas, chips, water and crackers.
Jess is not officially due until August 21 but she is having twin boys and is really ready any time. they told her the current estimate on the baby's weight is 6lbs 11oz and 7lbs 1oz. That's a lot of baby.

We left the beach went home showered, changed, and ate another delicious meal a la Fix, Freeze and Feast. We had Mango Cranberry Chicken, Rice and watermelon. then we headed back to the beach for a surprise party for Jon Landis.

He was very surprised and had fun playing on the 'teetertotter' with the kids.

Naomi, Jon's daughter helped Ruby pick me some flowers.

Ian was bummed because everyone else went t0 play beach football and he couldn't find anyone to teetertotter with. Papa saved the day and played with him.
We got home late and were putting the children to bed and someone rang the doorbell 5 or 6 times and knocked on the door. When I answered thinking it was a neighbor with an emergency I discovered that it was a salesman!!!! It was after 10pm! He said it will only take 5 minutes. Let's just say that I was not hospitable at all.
