Afternoon on the beach, yo!
Great, great weather!
The boys played an epic game of bocci ball, making up different versions like “eyes closed” and “backwards” and “feet only.”
I did more reading and some general relaxin’
And some Wheat Thin eating when I started to get really hungry around 5:30
When we came inside, I decided to get all the sand off in a BATH!! The tub in our bathroom is incredible and I had a great soak! It is my DREAM to have a bathroom someday with a separate soaking tub. Our 1960s tub combo just isn’t comfortable or big enough. My only question for you bath takers is: how do you wash your hair in a tub? It’s the only big drawback – I often stand up to take a quick shower at the end just to wash my hair.
The beach at sunset tonight was gorgeous
I’ve been taking engagement photos in the evening light : )
We celebrated the engagement with some champagne. They got out 7 glasses and poured a full one and even handed it out to me before I reminded everyone champagne is not exactly the baby’s preferred beverage ; ) I made a wonderful lemonade spritzer with lime in my glass instead.
I took a few photos of my own as well! The show must go on…26 weeks!
Karen’s Snakey has made so many appearances in drawers, bathtubs and cabinets. He scares me every time!
Tonight was Matt and my night to cook and we made a traditional low country boil! Find the recipe here!
We brought Andouille sausage made by The Rock Barn in Charlottesville and cooked it up with Carolina shrimp, fresh corn and red potatoes. Plus lots of Old Bay!
We used a GIANT pot that took two to drain!
Old Bay pile
Green beans on the side
And a mug of ice cream (Neapolitan!) to end the sweet day! Larbs and Matt taught me how to watch The Bachelorette. I’ve never seen it (or the male version) but I hear it’s in Charlotte so that might make it more exciting!?
