Sometimes it is hard to escape the reality that has become our life but it is days like this that really keep me going. It started with a day of swimming at Susu and Grandpa’s house and then off to Bayshores with friends for a dip in the bay, a few trips down the slide and finished with a great BBQ. The girls are always happy to be outdoors and swimming is a great form of exercise for Charlotte. The next morning, Uncle Mark picked Charlotte up at 5:30am-Yes, I said 5:30! Charlotte rises between 4:30a and 5:30a each morning so that can be tough on the rest of the family. Luckily Uncle Mark is an early riser too!
