Taking a break

We’re in Tahoe and it’s like heaven. We leave on Thursday and this breaks my heart, although I have plenty to do when I return. Want to hear about my day yesterday? It was divine…

9:00 am- wake up, pancakes

10:00 am-pool for the little man’s swim lesson

3:00 pm-finally leave the pool

3:30 pm-nap on the couch

5:00 pm-leftovers for dinner, yum!

6:30 pm- walk on the beach, so warm…heaven

early to bed because another grueling day awaits…

Here are a couple of shots from the beach walk, we couldn’t have timed the light better had we tried. I’m so incredibly self conscious about the huge amount of weight I gain during my pregnancies and I hate having my photo taken, but it is what it is and I figure I’d might as well embrace it. Plus, the light and the little guy warm my heart. Thanks, Pat for the awesome image.

I could get used to this.
