A F~U~N~tastic Day!

Shawn over at Letters to my Daughters has started a new campaign.

Here it is: The F-U-N Injection Challenge: Highlighting the fun in Motherhood.

Many of life's great mysteries is the ability for our minds to play tricks on us and, I feel this is especially easy when two toddlers are fighting over which page you should read next, or when both want to wear the one and only pair of cupcake pajamas.

Sure, motherhood is hard and we all relate to that, but we all know that there is a lot of AWESOME involved.

In honor of her fun campaign I took Anna to the beach. I know this isn't an option for everyone but it is for us even though it takes us upwards to 45 minutes to get there. It is so peaceful and fun I really don't know why I don't do this more often. Well, yeah I do it takes gas and gas is not cheap! But back to the fun part of it lol. We explored, chased birds, watched people fishing and trying to surf. We looked at algea and a jelly fish that had washed up. Most of all we laughed and ran and spent time just being happy and not worrying about all of the other stuff. You know, the dishes and the laundry and the yard work. All of the stuff that calls my name when I am at home.

Now run out and do something that makes you smile!


  1. Oh, wow! A big home run for Candace in Week 1 ... good for you! This is so awesome. I'm proud and honored that you took a leap like this. I know I would (or, would dream of it) if I lived that close! Our closest body of water is a stinky creek that everyone calls the Inky Stinky. : )

  2. Oh, and thanks for participating. I'm working on a Mr. Linky but not sure if it will work or not. I'll add yours in if so. If not, I'll just do it all by hand, like usual.


  3. I love the beach! There is just so much to explore and see and do there! Good for you to take Anna there. I'm sure she had a blast and will remember it as a good time.

  4. What a great idea!! I love this!! Your pictures are marvelous. Great job.


Y'all come back now ya here!
