Owen LOVES the beach. He gets out there and doesn't stop. He digs, he drives his cars, he runs. He's not much calmer in the hotel room, he reminds me of the ocean waves continually rolling in, if his feet aren't moving his mouth is running. So before dinner (of glorious crab) I took him to run on the beach, Anna came with me because we collect sea shells together. I love these moments of shadowed kids, they are brief but fill my soul completely. Loving our much needed vacation.
