London

parking lots

Do you ever experience that freaky feeling of waking up and having no idea where you are?

Generally speaking I don't get that feeling too much when I wake up in the morning- but more surprisingly I get that feeling while we drive around various cities. I guess some cities just look a lot alike!  

Once while driving around Denmark we came across a creepy empty mall parking lot. It was eerily similar to this other creepy empty mall parking lot we had come across in upstate New York previously. I was so confused about where I was at that moment. Such a freaky feeling to suddenly not understand where you are. Freaky but cool.  In those moments I like to try to make the confusion last as long as possible, it's like living between worlds.  

Also as a side note, it's not hard for me to make my confusion last a long time, I'm kind of in a general state of confusion...

In September we held a big goPro workshop reunion on the New Jersey shore. I really, really need to blog pictures from that reunion, it was so fun!  Our kids were somewhat in attendance for the weekend and one afternoon we all found ourselves on the beach doing some team games.  

We did a game where we divided into two groups of about 15 or so. Both teams were to build a giant sand sculpture that had something to do with photography. It just so happened that Belle decided to hang out with one team and Isaac with the other. 

We had 10 minutes to build. On the mark of go, each team furiously began building their sculpture. The team I was on decided to build a big camera. I was curious what the other team was building so I asked Isaac to be a spy and to run over and check out their sculpture. He was DELIGHTED with this spy task and bolted away.

He sprinted back and said, "it looks like they are building a plate!"

Ummm... ok. I was comforted by the thought that he thought they were building a plate. That meant that whatever the other team was making was still totally unrecognizable .

(I get a bit competitive at times.)

During the next 10 minutes I asked him to go spy a few more times. Time was quickly up and each team went to check out the other team's work. Turns out, we had both built cameras. Wah-Wah.  

To decide who won, we asked a random beach goer to pick a winner- I don't want to brag or anything but I was on the winning team :)  But that's not important NOR is it the point of this post.

On the walk back to the party house, Isaac sidled up to me cozily and sighed contentedly. "Mom, you taught me a great new skill today. I had SO much fun cheating!  I'd love to do it again."

 

Whoops.

Olympics

First world problem: missing the olympics because we're off camping without a TV.

People, you just can't have it all. 

From London- four beautiful ladies.

Train station

We took a train the other day from London to Paris. While we waited for our train  we noshed on some groceries from my favorite grocery/convenience store ever, called M&S Simply Foods. I am in love with their carrot sandwich and oh, everything else meatless.  The boys went on a photo walk and these are their results, followed by a couple on the train.

London was amazing and relaxing and perfect.
