Girls Trip

The last weekend of August I got to go to the coast with some friends. It was so nice to have a girls weekend. Oh, wait, it wasn't a weekend, it was just a day for me because I couldn't stay the night because of the Aumsville Corn Festival parade the next morning. Ugh. That's okay, I had a great day!

I took brownies to share and right before I left Emmett climbed in the van and put his stamp of approval on them. How often do you get to eat brownies with little toe imprints in them?

My friend Jocelyn reserved the weekend in her extended family's adorable little beach house.

I drove out with Jocelyn and Amy on Friday morning, the others couldn't come until the evening. First Jocelyn and I went for a walk on the beach while the tide was still low.

These white rocks pop up out of black rock.

We climbed up around the point but couldn't go to the other side because the tide was coming in too far already.

Frosting? Um, no.

We went out to lunch and got pizza then Jocelyn taught Amy and I how to play a favorite card game of hers that was a lot of fun. Jocelyn and I made a short trip to the outlet mall but had to hurry back because the Kari and Alicia had arrived.

There only ended up being five of us that could come. Kari, me, Alicia, Amy and Jocelyn.

We got a little silly

And before I went home (okay I stayed a lot later than this) we were all treated to a gorgeous sunset

What a great day for me! It's just nice to feel carefree and not have to worry about the next time I have to feed the kids, or are they being safe on the beach etc. etc. Now, if only I could have stayed the night with everyone... Next year! Right Jocelyn? We have to make this happen again, don't we? ...said with big puppy dog eyes. :)

I think we definitely have to do this again (especially because my kids are fighting in the other room right NOW)! I'm so glad you came! I love how you wide lens captured the beach house. So cool!

Also, your "frosting" comment cracked me up.

Your sunset, tide pools, even "frosting" pictures make me want to visit the coast.
