beach days

We had an amazing time on our annual trip to Chincoteague Island a few weeks back. It was so nice to spend time with good friends. Some days were really warm, others cool and breezy, but overall it was perfect. We love this place because it's not commercialized and we enjoy going at the end of the season when things are quieter. It's a small little island town and the folks are always really friendly. The beach is a wildlife refuge with all kinds of wildlife to see, including wild ponies. It's close enough to Ocean City that we can get a taste of the boardwalk scene if we want to.

The little one had a blast and was such an easygoing traveler. I was seriously impressed. He's definitely a beach person and I loved how this year, he was independent enough that he just went off and explored the beach on his own. Watching him run around in the sand, happy as can be, made my heart swell.

When I say this trip was much needed...well, you really have no idea.






True happiness.




First time 'floating' by himself.

  3. Modern yo-yos, including these from family names like Duncan, Throw Down, and Death by Yo-Yo, feature many plastic injection molded components. Century, billiards companies Duvet Covers began trying to find replacements to ivory billiard balls. The problem attracted inventor John Wesley Hyatt, who finally found model new} material—celluloid—that could be be} melted and injected into a mould and hold the ball-shaped kind once as} cooled. In addition to introducing a fabric suitable for injection molding, alongside with his brother, he also patented various use circumstances for the material and the primary injection molding machine. While this isn’t a plastic injection “technology” within the conventional sense, utilization of} unique materials formulations does advance molding capabilities.
