Today I Wanted It to be the Weekend Again.

Monday.  Ugh.  How I loathe thee. 

Well, it depends on the Monday: how I feel, how the girls feel, how much we accomplish, how much we miss Daddy, etc.

None of us girls were in the best of moods today and since I didn't get to bed until 1am last night, I woke up late.  And of course, Ash was already in a bad mood because I was late getting her out of bed.  Not a great way to start out.  I won't bore you with the negative details, but another Saturday and Sunday would have suited me just fine!

It's not like we did anything huge or exciting over the past weekend.   On Saturday we laughed together, made waffles, took naps, watched a movie, went to the beach (one the girls hadn't been to before), picked blackberries, and got Mexican for dinner.  On Sunday, we went to church, took more naps, made cinnamon bread/cake, ate baked popcorn chicken, flew paper airplanes, and did absolutely no housework.  Who wouldn't want to do all that again?  **sigh**  Guess I have wade through another set of weekdays, just like everyone else!

On the bright side, there is only one Monday per week.  **cheer**  Sooooo ready for Tuesday!

The following are some of the pics we snapped at the beach.

007
(i think she was a bit nonplussed by the wind and loud waves - it took her a good while to warm up to the new environment)

With the lighthouse
(the camera decided to focus on the lighthouse instead of my baby, for some reason.  haha.)

First Blackberries
(i'm pretty sure this was their first taste of blackberry.  so glad we stumbled upon the berries.  there were a ton.  totally worth getting stung by nettle to obtain!)

How about you?  Do you want a repeat weekend or was your Monday pretty good?

I love the shot: (my little driftwood sprite)!

I would love to repeat the weekend. My cousin got married. We did lots of driving. The interstate from NE to KC is still closed due to flooding! Boo! It was still fun though!
