Then the earthquake in Chile strikes and we were put on tsunami warning today. Hubs and I live in a house across the street from the ocean and thus we were in the evacuation zone. The fact that we are here as a result of our employment by the government, we were required to evacuate until given an all-clear. & so we have been out and about all day - shopping, eating, and driving in highly elevated areas. We were given the all-clear at a little after 5pm and I can't tell you how exhausted we are. First, if I had spent the day out like that, I would normally be kaput by the time I got home. But since this trek was done under the guise that my house and belongings could literally be covered in water by the time I was allowed back, I was stressed. Even if we knew that more than likely the tsunami would be minimal, we still worry. We are worriers. Y'all know what a stresser I am about what I buy from J.Crew so you have to know how I felt about all this.

There go Little Man's bubbles -- over dead palm branches from a recent storm.
Well, I'll leave it at that. Our weekend was a stressful one, for sure. But I took some very cute pics of my Little Guy playing bubbles and having a nice Sunday morning (before the tsunami warning was issued). It's fabilis to be a kid, isn't it? To not have to worry about whether some huge wave is going to come crashing down on you and to just be outside blowing bubbles. Lordy, I miss those days.
