A day at the beach

Our day at the beach with our staff was a lot of fun! Hot, but fun. The sand was 120 degrees! It was funny to see everyone dash from their towels to the water. Some of the people who climbed the dunes came back with blisters on their feet. The water felt so good and Kyle and I had a lot of time just to float on our raft and talk and debrief the events of the last week (actually, the events of the last 8 weeks).

Leaving Jack was very hard and our goodbye was tearful. Well, I cried and he gave me that drunken look that he gives when he's about to fall asleep. I think it was harder than I thought it would be because I suspect that my milk supply is getting low for a number of reasons and I was worried about what being gone for a whole day would do. It was fun to play with him this morning. He's really discovering that he has a voice and it cracks me up.

If you haven't already, read the comment left on my post yesterday. It has a link to all of the structurally deficient bridges in the US listed by state and county. It's alarming. We drove over quite a few on our way to the beach yesterday.

Kristen has a baby shower today and Kyle and Jack are hanging out at my parents house, so it should be lots of fun. I'm so excited to have a niece . . . have I mentioned in any of my blogs that I'll have a niece sometime in late September or early October? It'll be fun to have another baby around and I'm glad Jack will have a cousin the same age.
