Beach.. Well not really....
... but who's counting? We found a "beach" that is only about a 30 minute drive from our house... It is super nice... Other than the bird poop on the ground it is relatively clean.... We wanted to take the kids to a real beach with the ocean and all of the other fun stuff, but seeing as we are seriously landlocked, and have a child whom as most of you know, HATES the car, I am NOT up for the drive and we cannot afford to fly 5 people to a state with beaches... If we could afford it the hubby and I would take that honeymoon trip we always wanted... Right? So anyway the "beach" in OH-IO will have to do for now..
We had a great time.. There were only a handful of people there to enjoy the day, which by the way was beautiful and on the (very) cool side, around 70 and sunny.. It has been a beautiful summer here.. And this is going to be my first winter in a northern state.. I am scared to death I might add.... But that is neither here nor there right now. So RT had no clue that we were not at a real beach and he didn't give a rat's behind.. He had the time of his life.. He swam and built sand (small crushed up rock) castles... And scram and ran and laughed.. He had more fun than I have ever seen him have before.. And believe me I AM FUN (as far as moms go)!!!
We went to Target yesterday and he insisited we buy a bucket and shovel for the "beach".. So looks like we are slated for a few more trips before summer is up.. Which is fine with me... It is free (major plus) and close (another major plus) so I guess you will be seeing us at the "beach" quite a bit.
Well RT has dug the funnies out of the Sunday paper so we are off to read those.. Happy beginning of the week to everyone.. Mine are like rotating bits of days... No real beginning or ending to anything... NICE>>>>>
