When the sun came out

I already mentioned that our vacation was mostly rainy and overcast. In fact, it was SO rainy and overcast, that I can only remember putting sunscreen on my fair-haired, fair-skinned babies a grand total of one time. I know, I know, you can still get burned when it’s cloudy. But when it’s cloudy, raining, and you’re huddled under a pile of sweatshirts it’s almost certain that you won’t get a sunburn.

I’m a little crazy when it comes to sun-protection, so normally sunscreen is just one of the several steps of getting out the door. My kids have never liked it, but since it’s part of the routine, the kids eventually get used to it. This year we had our first warm, sunny day at the end of the week, and when I dipped my kids in a vat of SPF 800 they were like, “Um, Mom? What is this bizarre coconut-smelling torture you’re forcing on us?”


These photos are from the rare moments of sun, when we passed around the sunscreen and headed outside to soak it all in.
