I don't consider myself to be the most creative person around, but I do appreciate those who have a knack for creativity. I recently discovered this blog and feel inspired to be more craftsy and artsy, but also feel content just looking at all the arts and crafts that are already out there in the world :)

A little bit of paradise...

We just got back from a week at the beach in San Diego. We've had cool, rainy days here in Kirkland since we've been back and normally I would be a little depressed to leave the beach and come back to rain, but now that I've got plants to keep alive I don't mind if mother nature is watering my lawn for me :)
Here are a few pictures from our week. It was Ethan's first time at the beach and he thoroughly enjoyed the sand, sea shells, and getting his feet wet in the waves! He also took his first carousel ride at Belmont Park. He was fascinated by all the lights and the rides... I think I'm going to have another carnival lover to join me on the rides in a few years :)
