Smell the warm and salty air
See a wave reflect a beam
Stop and find a pretty shell for her
Make it real your summer dream
-- The Beach Boys "Your Summer Dream"

I've been out of commission with Strep throat for a week, but not before having a wonderful weekend in Corolla, NC. Amazing, amazing weather; so warm and beautiful, and a fantastic time with good friends. We stayed in the sun every possible minute. It's ironic to be loading these picures as I watch the snow melt outside...what a difference!

The Short People had a ball too, as you can see from the photos. They played outside until they dropped; on Saturday an eerie silence sent us downstairs to check on them all six children were in their beds putting themsleves down for a nap!

Since our Corolla weekend I've been pretty ill; the seventh time since May. I just returned from some lab testing at the hospital...still on the hunt for what is going on with me. Hopefully we'll find something soon. 'Til then, the beach is good medicine.

Looks like and awesome time. Kids in bathing suits and water in January - can't beat it. I hope you are feeling better soon.

Sorry about your throat. I wondered where you were. Strep sucks. I love the pictures, it makes me miss the ocean. The girls are just adorable.

Just noticed the Coronita in the cupholder next to Kate. Promise that was her Daddy' beer for short people!
