Water Babies

I have gotten quite a few emails lately asking about the Chloe shoes and understandably so, as I said I would list them well over a week ago. The truth is, despite considerable effort, I have not been able to find childcare for the kiddos,and some days are just maddening bouncing back and forth between caring for kids and trying to sew.

Thus, I decided to throw caution to the wind and try to make it a fun day for the kids. So... beach day! It was a little sandy and quite a bit of effort to get there, but well worth it to see Aidan's little dimple pop out when we drove over the bridge, and he saw the sun glimmering on the ocean.

It was hot and sandy, but we had a great time.


Buddies.... so cute!


And then their eyes met, he he....

Thanks, Kelly {pictured below}, for practically coercing me into going--I'm so glad I did!

That looks like so much fun. I haven't been brave enough to "beach it" yet with the girls (course- I'm coming from Austin)- Love the pictures

Looking at your children's faces, I'm SO glad you went to the beach instead of sewed today!

Those are breathtaking photos! I feel I am always in that same predicament. sewing v. kids... the beach is always the right answer when the kiddos on on summer won't get these times back! Good choice, cleary!
And all of your shoes and other creativities are darn amazing!

Thanks, everyone! We did have a blast at the beach. My kids keep asking, "Can we go back. Pleeeeeeeeeeease??" ;)

Love your items, Simone! Amazing use of color!

Oh, thanks, Kelly, for getting that awesome hiney pick of Mia!

Oh, what a fun day for you and your kiddos, bet they were just as excited for mommy time as they were to go to the beach!

The picture of you with the both of them is beautiful!

The hiney pic of Mia kills me! Oh what fun!! It's so true: you WON'T get these days to live again---and this age will fly by as you know...I am SO glad you took time for YOU (and for your chillin's). My favorite photo is of Aidan with his "buddies". That picture just makes me feel happy! It conveys his big heart. AND--I cannot believe how fast the Chole shoes are must be shipping madness at your house right now!! Blessings!
