The Lagoon

As a little girl, from age 1 to 6, I lived on the bay. We went to the beach almost everyday year round- even if it wasn't swimming weather. I have, and always will have, a deep connection to the water. 

When I was young, I dreamed of having my own little lagoon to play and swim in with lots of little sea creatures to discover. And today after 20+ plus years of dreaming we found it and its on a river no less! 

While our "lagoon" is not a real lagoon by the geographic definition, it is our lagoon nonetheless. Shallow clear waters, shade trees, daisies on the shore, shells galore, periwinkles, and ton of little critters to discover... we were in heaven! 

So as in Soulemama's words today, I am blissed out! Today was idyllic and really the epitome of childhood bliss. What a wonderful blessed day we had to top of a great weekend! It really was like a dream come true for me, but most of all to see my children loving the water as I do and truly savoring one of God's magnificent gifts to us, made finding our lagoon worth the wait!

I know, I know- I am casper but my skin is healthy! 

Can you tell he is teething? 

Fishing with Daddy! 

Shells and a new suit! 

Seriously to top it off the lagoon had tons of wild daisies! 

Where the periwinkles, minnows, and fiddler crabs live! 

Who needs pre-manufactured fun when you find a place like this??

Looking for whales!! She is convinced that they can live in rivers! 

Playing sweetly together! 


  1. Yeah! Gotta teach them early that "pre-manufactured fun" is inferior to their imagination and the great outdoors! (yeah, yeah, this is coming from someone who was known to play a lot of video games--but I believe in my words nonetheless!)

  2. You and me both, but I think you win! I mean Dance Dance counts as getting outdoors.. right? :) But you're right. As with all things in life having a good balance is key. I do not want tech. and pre-manufactured fun to be the forbidden fruit. Once they're old enough I am sure I will have to introduce them to the world of spyro.


I love to chat! Please comment :)
