A Week at the Beach

We’ve embarked on our biennial Thanksgiving week in Stinson Beach and life is good. So far:

Within an hour of our arrival, both boys were so wet and sandy they had to be hosed off before re-entering the house.

Ben has played with his favorites of his uncle’s various cool things: the carousel full of poker chips and the electronic card shuffler.

Eli has “woofed” at his uncle’s new puppy approximately 73 times (every time he walks past Dusty’s crate…)

The refrigerator is so full there’s no room for the turkey (good thing we have a few days to eat down the food supply before, um, we make a ton more food…)

And as I type, Ben and Eli are, for the first time, sleeping in the same room, so that Tony and I don’t have to share with either of them. Here’s hoping this is the first of many peaceful nights of the brothers sharing a room.


  1. Mom says:

    Ah! progress is brothers learning to share space….

    Hope it continues quietly!

  2. Lilian says:

    Oh, this sounds like a fun way to spend Thanksgiving, a whole week with family and good food. We’ll have less than 24 hours ’cause everyone is busy busy. My mother and father-in-law take an early flight from MA while my BIL & family drive from MD. On Friday we drive to MA with in-laws. I’m tired just thinking about it.

    Oh, yes, the two brothers sharing a room… I hope it works weel for you. It’s been going OK so far with us, that is, when they’re not sick and Linton has to sleep with me and daddy with Kelvin on the futon in their bedroom.
