One of the best things about the boys being home with Alan for most of the summer, besides having awesome quality time and adventures with their dad, is that they can come visit me at work over my lunch break. Once every couple of weeks, this lines up perfectly with low tide and I switch my office shoes for my rubber boots and we hit the beach to explore the treasures of the ocean floor. Odin still loves to jump in tidal streams and throw rocks into the mud, but he's starting to notice that we are looking for things other than rocks on the beach, so we think he may soon catch the beachcombing bug. Caleb recently said to me, "When Odin picks up his first piece of beach glass and wants to keep it...I'm going to be soooo proud of him!". haha.
|This photo pretty much sums me up - work, play, family and the ocean. Love our matching boots!|
|My dad found this crazy pre-1900's bottle on the beach last week! Finding old marbles and whole bottles is my most recent obsession, and it's definitely taken my beach glass collection to a whole other level!! |

|Aly and Ava joined us later in the week and the cousins had a great time driving around and playing in Odie's favourite toy 'Dada's beep!'|
