Spontaneous Beach Trip...

Andrew came home from work on Tuesday and said he didn't have to work the next day! So, I suggested doing something fun as a family, like going to the zoo, etc. Then I blabbed, let's go to the beach! So, we did! I had volleyball practice, and then we took off, just two hours after mentioning the idea. We aren't really like that, we plan things out. We prepare food, clothes, everything we might need for traveling with kids to make things smoother. But we needed something fun, something different, a little adventure. So I threw our suits in a bag, packed some eggs and bacon, cut up some strawberries and cucumbers, grabbed some trail mix and we were out! Literally! We made due, and didn't have any distractions. No computer, no e-mails, no work that had to be done. Just time spent laughing at our kids, lots of time swimming in the pool, and a short little walk on the beach. It was really windy, so we didn't last long. I also snuck in a soak in the jacuzzie as Andrew packed everything up:)




We enjoyed our time together, focused on being together as a family, and loved every second! Except for maybe when Jakey got carsick on the way over...

Here are my monkey's jumping on the bed...our bed I might add! They had there own room, but they had to jump on mine!

Seriously no computer? Wow--I'm super impressed.
