While making breakfast I listened to the sound of foghorns alongside Alexi and Cal's conversation over a game of chess. Abbott sat nearby, reading. A little while later, as I passed out bowls of oatmeal, Abbott leaned his face over his and inhaled the scent.

The fog disappeared and it was around 80 degrees in the afternoon. I love that about September. I'm really going to miss having sandal tan lines and walking barefoot on the beach.

I bought tickets for Alexi and I to take a short vacation alone next month - we've never gotten on a plane without the boys, and I'm a bit nervous about it and excited at the same time. We'll be celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary.

Take a look at this article about exercise and children.

Best wishes for your Tuesday!

How exciting! It is always fun to get away for a few days. I hope you have a blast!

That's the perfect way to celebrate your wedding anniversary! And I'm sure the boys will have their share of special fun while you're away.

Sounds like my idea of a perfect morning!

I hope you enjoy your trip away. 10th anniversary's are important enough to deserve such trips!

Being in Seattle, it's great that we can have sandal tan lines. Sounds like a loverly morning and how fun to have a trip to look forward. I was really nervous about leaving our 4 kids to go half way round the world for our
13th anniversary. But I was so busy swimming and snorkeling and sleeping uninterruptedly that I was able to keep it from interefering with our trip. It was jut the worrying beforehand that was bad. Hope you have a great time. Go barefoot and you can get rid of your tan lines!

I can relate to being nervous about your upcoming trip - my husband and I just returned from a trip away without our kids and it was so worth all the work to make it happen. I highly recommend it!

Ooh ooh! So exciting about the vacay! And I tell you, just getting on the plane with your husband and no kids will FEEL like a vacation, no matter where you're going!
