afternoon at the beach

it's been some tough parenting days, let me tell you. i'm not sure if it's the position of the moon, something in the water, or what. all i can say is that it's been mighty challenging.

although the weather really hasn't been helping, the soul of the universe afforded us one glorious day of sun last week.

which we spent in a movie theatre.

where we took turns watching the movie.

after the movie, we went for a walk on the beach.

you wouldn't know to look at these photos just how many disagreements there were. 

we were both so grateful to be able to take a breath away from ourselves to look around and observe all there was to see, to smell, and to touch. 

"imagine we were having this day at home..." i would say. 

and all the wife could do was nod and smile and attend to whichever babe needed one of us first.

gorgeous moments did abound as you can see.

which is just how i want to remember this day. 

because i know that when the toddler days have passed and when we begin to fight about all things we're going to fight about in the kindergarden days, the tweens, teens, and beyond - these are some of the moments i'm going to really miss.

now if only i could only find a way to curb my temper. and theirs.
