This summer was a little different for our family. My husband is fortunate enough to work with a company that gives its employees an 8 week sabbatical every set number of years of employment. We took full advantage of that this summer and packed our time with lots of trips and experiences for us to enjoy as a family. One of those was to rent a beach-front house in Rye, NH.
Both my husband and I love this area of New Hampshire and this town. The house was just minutes’ walk from a lovely state beach, and right on the shoreline. It was a perfect spot to just relax, listen to the waves and watch the sunrise from our bedroom window. Since the house happened to have three bedrooms, we invited my mum to join us from Scotland for the two weeks. My boys had a lovely time just being with grandma and I think she had a nice time just taking walks along the coastline and reading books on her kindle on the deck in the sun.
I loved us all having time together and was even able to get some lovely shots of my mum in this impromptu family portrait session.
