"Evie, what happened today that made us laugh really really hard?"
"My bup. It always makes you laugh, Mommy."
"Yes. Cuz its so cute."
So, other than Evie's butt, which is that cute, here were other funny things that happened today:
1. I remembered, vividly, how slippery the rocks are at Hammonnassett Beach. That was about a millisecond before I remembered how cold the water is in November. That was a microsecond before I fell in and remembered how much I dislike wet, sandy, clingy clothes stuck to me.
At the same exact time, I recalled how much I loved the beach. Every sandy, wet, cold, slippery bit of it.
2. On the way home, my brother had a look of happy exhaustion that melted from his face, replaced horror and regret.
"Oh, God. I forgot to take the huge snails out of the bucket after I showed Evie."
I got some great pictures of my mom and Evie and Don having a beach picnic at sunset and a lot of "prippy prippy shells."
