You tired of hearing about our vacation yet?

Steph has so aptly recapped our week in Seaside, at least from the kids' points of view. How was it from the adults' point of view?


We didn't do anything strenuous or interesting, really. I consumed inappropriate daytime mojitos, margaritas and beers. We actually slept in quite a bit, due to the fact that the kids demonstrated a strong preference for their grandparents in the mornings. Lots of lounging on the beach, reading books, taking pictures, bike rides, taking naps, drinking good wine, eating fresh seafood, taking more pictures, talking about the pictures we took...

(Sorry about all the picture-geeking, Steph and Mimi.)

The car trips there and back were both made much more tolerable by the fact that we hit the road at 2:00 a.m. I just can't imagine 8 awake hours in the car with these two monkeys right now. In fact, on the way back, we were so concerned with keeping the kids asleep, we did anything to avoid stopping the car (which wakes them up immediately). I had a frightful encounter involving an extraordinarily full bladder and an empty Coke can that I would rather not broadcast over the interwebs.

Anyway, on to the pics. Not all of these are prize-worthy, but this is the first vacation I've taken where I view the photography from more of an artistic perspective than a documentarian one. Whether that makes any difference to you, the viewer, I dunno.

Gorgeous pics! Now I have a sudden craving for deep fried pickles, sugar white beaches and creepily perfect New Urbanism.
