Ten years in a relationship with one person is an awfully lengthy time, so we commemorated the occasion with a long weekend on the spectacular Oregon coast. On the drive there, I realized something about Sasha: he is simply the nicest person in the world; he will do anything for anybody…except allow you to merge peacefully in front of him in traffic.

Finn loved running freely on the beach, he would just go and go and we did not have to worry about him getting run over by a car. I was concerned with the mighty ocean snatching him up and taking him away, but luckily the sneaker waves did not play any dirty tricks.  The best part was flying our giant Cyclops kite with spinning eye and spinner tail.

    Running on the beach is one of lifes pleasures (well, if you’re young) I bet they’d arrest me if I randomly ran around now 🙂 How awesome is that kite???

    That’s adorable.

    It really is chasing him! Poor lad will be suffering nightmares about the spinning tail monster for decades! 😉 Can’t realy understand how our babies suddenly got so big. Seems like only a few moments ago they were little fish in our bellies.

    This has nothing to do with the current post, but comments for the old site are disabled. I was in the shower and was looking at a pantene bottle. “Conpoo Shamditioner” crossed my mind, so I googled it to see if anyone else had the same thought. Sure enough! Can daydreams be catching?

    Just wait until you have been with the same person for 24 years. There were some bad years in there, but now we are glad we still have each other. And I agree with Sasha, the road between me and the car ahead of me is mine and mine alone.
