poke.poke.poke....


We are nearing the end of a long trip to see family. The neverending New York rain must have managed to follow us all the way to the drought-ridden midwest, as we greeted grandma's house with two more days of pouring rain.


After many a moment in the car of one bored brother using the other as a means of entertainment, (poke. poke. poke...."hey! stop it stop it stop it stop it" "what? I didn't do anything. I was trying to reach that book" poke. poke. poke. ) we ventured out to the beach for some much needed space. Two lattes greeted two very relaxed parents, as we were finally able to stretch out some legs and enjoy the sun's return.



It was a trip to see all the family, and with that came many return visits to the car as we headed back and forth between nana's house and grandma's, with a few stops in between to see the cousins.



Family portraits started becoming a bit of a "challenge", as two little souls started to wear out a bit. They have had a full week of daily adventures, and now it is time to get their little bodies ready for the journey back home.



Let's just hope this time they will at least sleep a few minutes in between the inevitable poking that will ensue.....I think when we get back we will be trading our newly purchased vehicle for a slightly "wider" one. There are only so many poking incidents a mum can endure :)

p.s. my return will hopefully signal a return to the shop posting (finally!), so look for an update to come in early September! anything you would all like to see?
