Black and White Wednesday - "One Lucky Boy"

Nick Beach Last Year BW BLOG2

Nick has been gone for the last 12 days. He is at the beach with my family and is due to come back home this weekend. Other than when Pat and I went away on our honeymoon, I have never been away from him this long. I have talked with him every day and he is having the time of his life....... he doesn't sound like he is missing home at all.

In addition to hitting the beach daily, they are doing all sorts of fun things. They went crabbing and actually caught a few and then came home and ate them:) Yesterday they went canoeing, and tomorrow they are going out on jet skis.....with adults of course.

His two week beach vacation is quickly coming to end and he will be back home on Saturday. We CANNOT WAIT to see him!!

He will only be home for 4 days and then we are all packing up and heading North. We are going to Cape Cod for our annual beach getaway and really looking forward to it. Pat and I have been working so hard this summer, so we could really use a few days of complete R&R with the family.

After we return from the Cape, Nick will be packing his suitcase one last time as he will be heading South to Virgina Beach with his Dad for a week.

Is this kid lucky or what? He is going to have spent a total of 4 weeks at the beach!! Definitely a summer to remember.

Since I am missing my little guy and don't have any new pictures, I thought I would post one of my favorite pictures from last year's trip to Cape Cod.

What a lucky boy! How fun to go crabbing and to get to eat them! I am so missing the beach . . . Lucky you - you will be there soon!

Dita said...

Now THAT sounds like heaven to me...4 weeks at the beach.
Remember when we were Nick's age and summers just lasted forever and we didn't have a care in the world...except that school would start up again and we didn't do our summer reading?!
I know you are missing your baby boy terribly but remember, you are giving him a summer to remember for the rest of his life.


I am so happy you guys are headed to the Cape. You have been working like a dog and you really need to chill a bit. I have a feeling that you are going to get a big surprise while you are up at the Cape.

Can't wait!

xoxoxo
Big hugs,

Lynn said...

Hi Lisa,

Summers like his make great childhood memories. I can only imagine how you miss him. Ours are not old enough to travel like that yet, but I am sure it is bitter sweet. You love the fun and adventure he is having, but miss him terribly. They do grow so quickly though.

Enjoy your family trip - which will be larger next year!

4 weeks at the beach? He is really one lucky boy! He's having the type of summer you can only have when you're 12. one of sheer abandon and awesomeness! I love it!

I am a strong believer that summers must include the sea shore! Sun, sand and boardwalks!
