Flip Flop Lines

Yesterday we went to the park for about an hour and a half. I sat on a partially shaded bench while Sophie played. About 30 minutes into our park time, I realized I hadn't put sunscreen on her (it wasn't that hot - maybe 72 degrees - so I didn't think about it). After lathering her up a bit, she impatiently went back out to inspect the bark that covered the play area. Apparently it's a lot more interesting than the toys themselves.

A couple of hours after we got home, I realized that I should have put some sunscreen on, too. I checked Sophie to see if she'd gotten burned anywhere, but there wasn't a trace of pink on her. Just a couple of cute flip flop lines on her feet that hadn't been there before. I, however, was fried all the way up one side of my legs.

I love flip flop lines -- it's one of my favorite things about summer. Sophie's lines had taken her about an hour, and it wasn't even on purpose. Mine had taken about 2 months to get the point she's at, and I even burned a couple of times. Lucky girl's got her daddy's skin.

I love those lines too...

BTW my brother (who moved to Idaho a few years prior to me) laughed when I said I had not seen potato fields, so I apparently have, there is just so much corn, alfalfa, and mint too.

Also it's been over three years since my husband died, he deployed when I was about 6 months pregnant with our first.

I love flip flop lines too. So sad when winter comes and my feet get pale and veiny. Love the pigtails. Sophie is so photogenic.
