Farm trip 2010

August 31, 2010

In mid-August, we headed out to Long Island to visit our CSA farm, Garden of Eve. We saw the veggies, ate cherry tomatoes off the vine and saw the chickens that provide our bi-weekly egg delivery.

Then we stopped at Sunken Garden State Park to swim in the bay and build sand mounds. A lovely day trip.

Our road trip to North Myrtle Beach

August 31, 2010

For the Fourth of July, we took a road trip to North Myrtle Beach. We spent Saturday to Saturday relaxing with family, swimming, reading, lazing around, eating ice cream and seeing the sights.

It’s been more than a month since we got back, but just last week, when we were at the swings, Charlie asked me if I remembered how we saw Pirate Pete, how Kathryn and Ethan rode with him in his car, how we caught little fish at the beach and covered Uncle David with sand, how we used the big shovel that Nanny bought, how Pawpaw read books to him and Sam, how he and I rode the Ferris Wheel and saw “all of Myrtle Beach.”

It was so fun. We’ve been wishing we could go back since we left. Here’s our photos and videos from the trip.

When I tell the cousins to shut off the TV, this is what happens.
