So, every year, my library very generously allows me to attend a library conference and take my family. We usually stay overnight, and while I rush from workshop to workshop, Alex watches Gideon and hangs out with him. Then I meet them for meals, and usually by 4ish, I am free to play with them. The best thing about it, is that it takes place right on the beach, in Long Branch NJ.
This year, it was kind of chilly, and not really beach weather. However, we got to walk on the beach on the last day. Alex and I were very much interested in taking a particular picture, since last year, we got a great shot of Gideon with Alex, looking at the waves. (below)
So, this year, we were after a similar shot, except with a now (obviously) older Gideon. Here is what we got:
Cute, right? You can tell that it wasn't as sunny out as last year. Can you imagine next year? Yikes. Two kiddos.
We were hanging out on the beach, when this cute young couple from Utah, asked us to take their picture to send to their parents. It was their first time on the Jersey Shore. In return, they take this picture of us. What is up with my hand?
