I am aware that posts about my fabulous trip to the beach each year can become long and boring. This year I’m going with six pictures of perfect beach moments with a brief explanation of each.
#1 Sonic Drive-In
We don’t have a Sonic in our town, so an order of chili cheese fries and a strawberry limeade the size of my head are always a HUGE treat. Slushies and tater tots for all the kids and 45 minutes left in the drive, can’t beat it.
#2 Hannie B’s Flourescent Swimsuit
It only took us buying and returning SEVEN swimsuits to find one that was modest AND cute. It was a total bonus that we could spot her anywhere on the beach because she was so bright!
#3 Owlie Beach Firsts
Could any kid love being buried in the sand more than this? I think not. He also finally loved dipping his toes in the waves, digging large holes and shoeing away the sea gulls.
#4 The Perfect Photobomb
A true photobomb happens when the person being photographed has no idea there is a bomber behind him. Well played, Hubby.
#5 Cousin Time
RedDog is never happier than when he’s with his cousins Jonah & Sam. I hardly saw him all weekend long because he was hiding out with them playing games, drawing maps or boogie boarding.
#6 Me + Beach = Happy
I just love the beach. I’m a pale, white girl who can’t really tolerate the sun that well, but I don’t care. This little trip is what gets me through the end of school each year. Life is good!
PS. It really was a PERFECT trip. The two variables that can inevitably cause misery – traffic and weather – were both on our side. No traffic and 80-90 degree weather. Excellent, if I do say so myself! Up tomorrow: CASTLE COMPETITION.
