Good Friday

I took the day off ya'll! The significance is that I work M-F and husband works Saturday and Sunday - every week. We rarely get a day off together.

For all you international readers, the USA may be termed a "Christian" nation but we do not have public holiday's for Easter. I get really bitter about this every year as I watch our Hong Kong office take off Friday and Monday, Vietnam as well, along with all clients across Europe and Mexico is so religious they take the entire week off! We get NADA! Nothing! It is so bizarre.

Anyhoo! On with my lovely day off with husband and the delightful Baby Mondue!

With no rain on the horizon a beach day is obviously the way to go. Having husband to carry stuff is great! And I learned a second set of eyes to keep baby from eating hair balls and small shells is really super helpful!!!

Baby Mondue's campaign to prove the uselessness of my job continues as she plays with found objects from our beach bag:

And we get the growl face with camera case:

Hubs cannot resist the urge to plant her in the water and it's cold! We get the O face after a wave has washed over her

One of the fun parts about bring husband is someone gets to take photos of me with baby!

After the water play it's back to playing with randomly found objects

And upon leaving she examines the stunning beauty of a shell

Our "exhaust the baby" plan worked and she was in bed by 8pm leaving us to watch the final episode of "The Sarah Connor chronicles". I'm a cool wife, I like Sci Fi.

I miss the beach. Haven't been on sand in 3 years! I can't wait to take my kids to see the ocean! :)
