the last time parker had a true beach day he was a little guy and had zero opinions, really. this time, he could protest if he wanted. but alas, he did not. he sat happily on our laps for over an hour, taking it all in. (except when his feet touched the sand. he wasn't having that.) so, i declare him a beach bum! after his mama's heart! anyway, it got up to 75 degrees on sunday and i about kissed the sand. my mom and dad were up which was great and about half of our clan was around too. it was a really good day. i'm pretty much always ready for summer, but after this weekend, bring it on.
