Prelude to the beach

Now that I am back from the beach I know it's time for an update. Here's the thing...I started my day getting blood sucked from my arm to finally see if I have the crappy Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) gene or if I am lucky enough to be the first generation it has skipped...which made me late for the ultrasound that was supposed to happen this morning which I had to cancel because apparently when you are old you all flock to the lab centers before they open, causing me to be (un)lucky number 55 and have to wait for 40 minutes. Needless to say, I had to reschedule said US and now I am sitting in the Border's parking lot typing on my teeny weeny little iPhone keypad all for the sake of this update only to find out that Border's doesn't cater to the early and opens at 9:00 and not 8:00. Super. Thirty-one more minutes to go...

Anyway, this gives me time to give a little overview of our beach trip to Chincoteague/Assateague. First off, we were a little sad that Daddy didn't get to come since he decided it was way cooler to sit at home and type his grad class presentation, so we missed him. Despite all of this, I am proud to announce that with about 95%confidence I can say that Cameran is going to be a water baby/beach bum as she grows up. She tolerated the beach for about five hours each day. I made Pappy fill up her mini pool to cool off/de-sand in, and thanks to my friend Christine, Cameran had her own pop-up tent to chill in, sand-free. Plus, since my family always looks like a circus with our immense beach set-up, we also had the shade of a full canopy tent and two beach umbrellas (it was only Pappy, Nanny, Cameran and me).

When we weren't being beach bums we rode around the island, went shopping (Pappy baby-sat ALONE for the first time!!), ate Mister Wippy's ice-cream, ate steamed crabs, relaxed, played cards, and took Cameran on her first official pony ride!! We even had a campfire one night.

All is well documented, and I made Ryan sit to watch the slideshow.

Pics to come :)


  1. Sounds like a fun time! Glad Cameran liked the beach!! :)

  2. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. Your baby is scrumptious. What a precious little angel! : )
    I saw your comment at Enjoying the Small things with your list of three things you loved and I had to come and say hi! And then I see that you are a Pennsylvania girl and so am I so I got super excited :) I mean, really, what is better than Pennsylvania girls? Oh, I also hate to clean. : ) I think we will be friends for life : )

    I am sorry about your sucky morning. That stinks! I hope you had a great time in Borders once you got in there. Nice to meet you : )
