Every Summer, my sister-in-law, Lauren and I do a girls beach trip. We planned this year to be the week after Lauren was done teaching for the year. It was a fun trip to kick off her summer vacation.
The afternoons were reserved for naps for ALL…
Evenings were spent eating out and doing a little shopping…
Then it was back to the condo to walk on the beach one more time every night at dusk.
Of course some serious snacking went on while we were there, too!
We had a popsicle party on the balcony one night and enjoyed popsicles in the pool, too! We found the best popsicles EVER for toddlers. They are TINY and slow-melting… they were adorable. We’ve looked every where for them since we got back, and can’t find them around here.
I even broke one of my own rules and bought AB an ice cream from the “Ice Cream Bus” as she calls it. She would hear him coming down the beach and yell, “Ice Cream Bus, Ice Cream Bus!!!” How could I NOT get her an ice cream after that cuteness? (Even if the man that drives the Ice Cream bus is a grouchy ole thing who sells ice-crystal-covered ice cream and I swore he’d never get another dollar from me?!?!?)
Annabelle provided much entertainment, as always. She’s become obsessed with Disney’s new movie, “Tangled.” So we had to watch it half a dozen times…a day… And every time we’d cross the bridge to A1A, she’d yell, “Cain-gled (Tangled) Towers, Cain-gled Castles!!!” when she saw all the condos.
I told Lauren I don’t know how we’ll drag two kids to the beach next year. And Lord help us, when she and Adam start a family… I figure there’s no way for just us girls to haul them all to the beach alone. Lauren’s got a plan though… we’ll start loading all our stuff in the car and drive it on the beach every day. I’m thinking I’ll have to get the bigger tires on my golf cart so it will be beach ready and we can drive it. We’ll figure out something, because I’d hate to miss a trip to the beach! :)
