A Perfect Day at the BeachPosted: August 4, 2010
We are getting ready to go down to the beach, and the kids are running around with a balloon outside while they wait for Manfrengensen and me. Edison is driving the game, calling out rules and color commentary. The Princess is so excited to have her brothers play with her. She jumps up and down trying to hit the balloon Clooney brought home from Red Robin last night. In a rush, she exclaims, “I love you, Edison!”
Manfrengensen is making my customary turkey-and-cheese-on-a-roll lunch as all this is happening. He says he envies me a bit. I know I have the life, and I thank the fates every day for it. Even the simple things — that Manfrengensen makes my lunch, and carts it down to the tide’s edge for me, that’s one special part of this enchanted life.
