In no random order:
1- High school boys are really trying for the Zac Efron look these days. I wish I had packed scissors in my beach bag so I could offer bang trimmings to a few.
2- We are a very competitive family when it comes to miniature golf. And we may or may not have a couple of cheaters amongst us!
3- I appear to be in the slim minority of girls/women who do not have tattoos.
4- My kids seemed to be the loudest no matter where we went. Note to self. Make appointments for ENT doctor to check hearing. They weren't misbehaving (well a few exceptions). They're just LOUD!
5- Bikinis come in all sizes and all sizes wear them.
6- My normal stressful photo session on the beach with the minis at sunset was not so stressful this year. It had started to sprinkle so I snapped as many as I could before a downpour (without yelling pose directions!) and the few I took turned out better than the millions I've taken in the past. And there were no tears from the kids or me!
7- Key Lime Martinis are quite tasty.
8- Mini#2 hates my ponytail. This started last summer, but he took it to another level of hate this week. "I don't like your hair that way and I won't kiss you until you take it down!" However, in joking, mini#1 suggested I wear Dorothy pigtails. In joking, I put my hair in pigtails AND mini#2 LOVED it. I felt 3 years old, but I wore pigtails to the beach that day (under a wide brimmed hat)and I didn't hear mini#2 complaining every 20 mins or so about my ponytail! Go figure!
9- USA, more specifically in this east coast beach area, really is the land of the all-you-can-eat-buffets and you would never know our economy is in the toilet by looking at the cars in the parking lots!
10- It's always nice to get away, but it's even nicer to return home and sleep in your own bed!
