The boys and I had a beach day planned for today -- going in the afternoon when Emily was off work. Josh opted to drive separately--and, boo hoo, by the time he got to the beach couldn't find parking. And we kept crossing messages and missing messages. We were all bummed.
Isaac boogie boarded alone and I walked. We did puzzles together. Josh & Emily went to a different beach -- while we had all the chairs and towels and food . . .
And then we called Josh and decided to meet for dinner together at The Beach Plum. Unfortunately . . . there are two Beach Plums and we each went to a different one . . . but eventually we were
all together . . .
and that's when I tried to call Neil--who put his back out badly but insisted he'd be fine home alone. Neil didn't answer . . . and he hadn't answered the hour before either and I started to panic. I called my neighbor Sara. Thank you thank you Sara for going by and texting me this photo with the message: He's Alive!!!
And now Josh just got home -- and I'd locked him out! So we're all home. Together and safe. And looking forward to tomorrow because . . . it's Boston Comic Con. . . Wish Josh and Rue would ride with Isaac and friends who I'm driving down, but he's got his mind set on taking a bus.
