The first day of 2012 was spent taking it easy, as was the rest of the first week it seems. :)
Things have moved along slowly with all of us enjoying the slower pace of no school work just yet and having Daddy home every day this week.
Late, during the first afternoon of the year, we decided to drive down to the beach to watch the sunset and to take in the approaching cold front as it passed through. The afternoon was perfect for beach walking and treasure hunting with Ethan's new metal detector.
I, of course, played around with the cameras, watching the sunset. The air changed quickly from very wet and humid to very dry with a north wind blowing in and making our walk back to the car quite chilly.
Night approached quickly and the kids all had flashlights to play around with on our way back in. We even stopped for a bit to let them play in the playground with their flashlights before we began heading home.
If the first day of 2012 is any indication of the rest of the year to come, things should go along smoothly and simply, filled with beautiful moments.
