most evenings....the sunsets into the water right in front of our bluff/cliff. quite an amazing site. wiffle ball games and big pushes on the tire swing while we soaked up that yellow light.

suddenly the dads proclaim "bonfire on the beach" and all the kids run to the stairs. i think to myself "really? do we have to go down those stairs again?" but i go because there is no place in kansas to have a beautiful bonfire on the beach that will trick your mind in to thinking you are on a tropical island or living in a LOST episode.
this is not even the halfway point.... goofy boys. jake telling me "don't put this on your blog!" and me saying "you didn't sign the waiver jake!"
sean discovered monarch caterpillars at the bottom of the stairs. my favorite!
depending on which way you faced the pictures turned out quite differently.
making smores on a windy beach is challenging....but they find a way when there is chocolate involved.
and the fireworks came out.....
and then it was dark. i used my flash....the first time in years.
the smoke from the fire made it look groovy man. i think they were jedis? or harry potter fighting? who knows. they are using the cardboard the glow necklaces came in....not sticks.
it was beautiful. and fun. and worth the 223 steps back up.....i think.
school enrollment today. yippee. $$$$ writing checks and filling out forms......my favey........not.
