a walk to the beach (and a family tree winner!)

David is home 'sick' today (he has been fine except for the awful, 20 minute fits he's having a couple times day with abdominal cramping. Apparently it's a bug that's going around) So, I took the boys to Morro Bay and we walked the path at the Cloisters to the ocean. It was sunny but chilly. We needed to get out and play a bit.

We got some good hand-holding and
back-pack snuggling time in. Put that tongue back in your mouth, young man!
Matty could have run and dug in the sand for another hour at least!

It was a beautiful walk!And we saw a snake! I'm sure it was harmless, but I didn't stick aournd to find out.

The winner for the Family Tree Giveaway is Lindsey. Her blog is called Merry Christmas from the Thomspons. I was just reading thru some recent posts and felt so at home with her. She is beautiful and honest and I am so glad she won! Happy Monday!

I am honestly crying right now. I feel so lucky to have won your beautiful work. I have been reading your blog for a while now, and I have felt so inspired by you. To have something YOU made makes me feel like a million bucks. Thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Kids are amazing either when they are sweet or fooling it out! Glad you guys are having fun (I need to update my blog sometimes this week in regards my boys' fun activities, too)

Hope David feels better :-)

Aww, I hope David feels better soon.

I swear, good weather plus sick kids equals some really great times. I have had sick guys for almost a week, and this warm jag has been a GOD send. Honestly, the best thing. Today, we sat outside and did our reading lesson, then laid down and "napped" in the yard. (that means I dozed off while they threw pine cones at each other).
God is so good, getting us out just when we, and the kids, really need it.
