yesterday, as I was watching it rain…again…I was reminded of the time we went to the beach! It seems like it was FOREVER ago since it has rained nearly EVERY day since we returned!! I remember complaining a few times at the beach because the kids were up at the crack of dawn, or they were fighting or crying, and now I realize how silly that was to complain at all! We were at the beach for Pete’s sake!
We did have the best time while we were there. We took a 4 hour chartered fishing trip! The first 20 minutes were awesome, the next 3.5 hours were a nauseated purgatory, and the last 3 minutes getting off at the dock were pure bliss! Walker got to catch a King Mackerel which he still talks about almost every day!
This was the first year we have been to the beach that neither of the kids SCREAMED when a grain of sand touched their skin. They both LOVED the pool and did take a few trips to the ocean (slightly against their will)
We got to enjoy some awesome seafood dinners, plenty of sun, sand and time with each other.
Now I just want to go back…no complaining this time…promise!
