Hello!!! How have you guys been? I feel like I’ve been away from the blog for ages, and I’m looking forward to catching up. We just got back from a week in Fair Harbor, a tiny beach town on Fire Island. Here are a few photos, if you’d like to see…
The only rule for the kids all week? They had to get ice cream every day, LIKE IT OR NOT. (I also rediscovered Moose Tracks, which I ate almost every night back in high school. So good.)
Another bonus: Shoes are totally optional, even at the grocery store. Everyone goes barefoot. I didn’t wear shoes for the whole week and actually had to search for them when we packed up yesterday!
Our husbands joined us for the weekend. It was fun to wait for the evening ferry and try to spot them on the deck.
In the evenings, we’d return to the beach to soak up that golden light.
Alex snapped these shots of Anton and me, which reminded me of these old photos with Toby!
Before bedtime, the toddlers were allowed to watch a TV show. Toby, a lifelong romantic, would pick his friend up in “a carriage” (red wagon) and bring her over for “a date.” These photos made me laugh, since my sister’s friend calls television a tranquilizer gun for kids.
Finally, once the babies were asleep, we’d hang out just grown-ups. One night, Alex and I snuck out to dinner…
…but mostly we’d just have girl talk and hang. (It felt like a week of mama/baby sleepovers:) Overall it was the vacation we all needed—to just laze around, hang out and eat too much ice cream.
Anyway, hope you had a good week. Now back to reality! Lots of love, xoxo
