just had to share a few more photos from our ranch stay over the weekend. holden has not stopped galloping around the house and neighing since we returned home and it just cracks me up. he has also taken to randomly climbing onto me when i’m least expecting it and starts clicking his tongue at me as though i’m the horse taking him for a ride. it seems the ranch stay made a lasting impression on him.
on mama: dress; on holden: similar blazer // tee // similar pants
it was st. patrick’s day and we didn’t wear a single piece of green. it wasn’t until friday that dustin and i were reminded that it saint patrick’s day was a mere two days away, instantly reminding me of my thoughts from last year. we attended a parade on saturday morning (holden’s very first parade ever), but when the actual holiday rolled around we ended up steering clear of the usual st. patty’s day festivities and instead headed to the nearly desolate beaches at half moon bay. we started the morning at the tide pools, finding sea anemones, starfish, hermit crabs, and mussels. we then stopped by a local taco shack for lunch and napped on blankets in the sand into the late afternoon, the crashing waves replacing the need for any sort of sound machine. before heading home, we stopped at the harbor for a quick dinner and one more hour on the beach where holden and our puppy chased one another underneath the pier.
a simple and unusual st. patty’s day, but an absolutely perfect sunday.
when holden was a baby, we went to some sort of class every single day. he was always surrounded by a handful of other children for a few hours of every day, allowing both him and i to socialize. but now that he’s older, he seems to have lost all interest in the classes that he used to find entertaining, preferring to spend all of his time outdoors searching for acorns or collecting rocks with his mama. and i’m finding that for my own sanity, i need to find and explore new activities for us because frequenting the same park daily can get a little monotonous. the last day of february felt like summer had arrived (somehow skipping spring completely), making me eager for all of the activities that summer brings: swimming, picnics in the park, playdates with friends, family bbqs, and all of the other fun summer outings.
