Spring Break 2014: Sunday Beach Day

Ever since the mention of an upcoming "Spring Break," Isabel's been on a beach kick.

"Can we go to the beach?"

"Let's go to the beach, ok?"

"Tomorrow?  Can we go to the beach tomorrow?"

Sunday after the 9 a.m. service at church, we hung out at the house, ate lunch and then headed to the beach.  Jacob had to work.  :(   It was an overcast day, so we knew it would not be too hot for it.

Now, let me explain something.  I. Hate. The. Beach.  I hate it. ALL the work.  Let's get changed, let's get towels and sunscreen, hats and a change of clothes. Let's get chairs and blankets, water and snacks. Let's load the car.  Let's spend 30 minutes trying to find a spot.  Let's lug everything from the car to the beach.  Let's set up everything.

Then after about half an hour, I'm completely out-of-my-mind bored.  I hate the salty water. I hate sand everywhere.  Sand in places sand has NO business being in.   I hate having to put everything back in the car and get the car, and my house, sandy.

I am not a fan of people who come to stay at my house and go to the beach.  They bring back their sandy clothing and selves back and I want them to just stay outside and hose off.

So going to the beach for Isabel?  It's a big deal.

Love that I caught her in mid-air.

After we left, we decided to go to PJ's Sea Shack and boy, were we glad we did.  Half-priced appetizers on Sunday, plus the half-priced Early Bird menu were fantastic.  Our bill was basically half what it would have been.

Om nom nom!  Isabel ate this!


We went home, all sandy, and crashed for the night.
