Thoughts for Thursday: The Beach, Spiked Seltzer, and Camera Recs

Hi Friends!  Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far.  We are down in Bethany Beach, DE with some friends for the week so I just wanted to pop in real quick and share some random thoughts. 

The kids are loving every minute at the beach, as expected.  I used to vacation on the Delaware beaches as a kid so it's been fun to share little memories with them like enjoying Boardwalk Fries on the boardwalk or a big Kohr Bros ice cream after dinner.  These are the moments of parenthood that I love and make me feel nostalgic for my own childhood.   

It's been hard to capture pictures of the kids on the beach this time. They're so excited to have their friends around, they barely sit still or smile for me!  This trip has also made me realize I really need to invest in a good camera so that I can take better quality pictures of my kids. 

Does anyone have a recommendation for a beginning camera?  I got a new point and shoot a few years ago but with the iPhone technology they basically take about the same quality pictures now. 

If you're looking for a new summer drink you have to try Truly Spiked and Sparkling!  It's a light and refreshing spiked seltzer that comes in tall skinny cans which are perfect for the beach ;)  So far I love the Grapefruit and Pomelo flavor.  It reminds me of a La Croix.

  4. Beach vacays with friends are the best and totally remind me of childhood. Eat all of the Kohr's for me!

  5. How cute are your boys with their ice cream?! I can't wait to make memories like this when Vivi is a little older. I hope you guys had a great vacation!
