I found it at the Hull Lifesaving Museum. We drove until the road met the sea and pulled into the tiny parking lot. A renovated house, there wasn't much to look at until we reached the Children's Loft tucked way up in the attic. With the rain gently tapping on the roof and the lights casting a warm glow, it was perfect.
The kids sailed, fought off pirates, and pulled up lobster traps. Then we all climbed the ladder to the Widows Peak and spotted the lighthouses guiding the boats home.
Im not sure we will ever drive to the end of the earth for this museum again, but for that day it was worth it :)

As we were leaving the little local rodeo, we spotted this fake Bull across the parking lot. The kids were unsure about how it worked, so Mike volunteered to show em the ropes! We literally laughed until we cried.

"Why do you want to take my picture?"
"Because you look like the picture of Summer and you just made my day"
A few minutes later my brood and I were gathered on the front porch chattering about our day splashing in the waves and finding jelly fish. My new friend in the seersucker jacket returned with a fresh loaf of bread from the neighboring bakery.
"A gift for you" he said.
"Why are you giving me a gift?!"
"Because you and your children just made my day."
...and thus our Summer began.

We are at the beach here, and we all know by now that is my element. I am happiest on the beach always. And the fact that Mike likes it too is perfection.
The Boston Hoodie. He bought it on a whim while we were in Boston at night and he found himself without an extra layer. I was around the block with the kids and when we met back up I couldn't believe my eyes. First, I had never seen him in a hoodie sweatshirt. After 16 years together the surprises are getting few and far between. And it is a BOSTON hoodie. It is hard to describe how I feel about Mike moving to Boston. It makes me sad and ridiculously happy at the same time. I will forever be grateful that he chose this move with me. The sweatshirt somehow summed up all my feelings. Not bad for $20!
