family beach trip 2015. the last day.

the last day.  we started out at the beach.

derek took isaac out in the deeper waters for a long time, so i wandered about with the girls.  collecting bits of shells.IMG_0870_2 IMG_0875_2 IMG_0877_2

and writing in the sand.IMG_0886_2

and snapping as many photos of the sister love as i could.IMG_0894_2

isaac returned from his wave adventures to hang a bit.IMG_0921_2

we almost even managed a decent picture.  almost.IMG_0925_2

then, back to the pool.  this knucklehead.IMG_0933_2

for dinner, we found a new little mediterranean place and it was awesome.IMG_0939_2

chicken souvlaki.  seriously.  so good.IMG_0944_2

we pulled into a random mall (to get me a new book!) and happened upon an old school arcade.  i tried donkey kong and then remembered that i’m terrible at video games.IMG_1002 IMG_0950

derek, of course, was in heaven.  he played some super mario bros and then got the high score on ms. pacman, while a fellow ms. pacman enthusiast looked on with wonder.IMG_0951_2

the kids tried pinball.  IMG_0961

we got home pretty late.  slept.  awoke.  packed.  and left.  and derek sneakily snapped this pic while i soaked in one last moment.  i was probably crying.  until next year…IMG_1003_2

i’m done.  just in time for back-to-school blogging!
