This weekend, I did something crazy. I took the kids to the beach by myself. Hubs was at work and I was determined to not sit around all weekend and have the kids go crazy. We woke up on Saturday and it was raining. Of course it always rains on my side of the island so I was hoping that it wouldn’t be raining at the beach. We ate breakfast and I got everyone packed and loaded into the car. We took off driving towards the beach.
As we drove, it was still raining.
It was raining until we took the exit to the resort area and I breathed a sigh of relief. We parked and headed to swim.
Because of the weather and because the beach was kind of under construction, we were the only ones there! It was great. I put on the kid’s swim vests and got to playing.
I am admittedly not a beach bunny. I’m usually done after 30 minutes but Hubs usually forces us to stay longer. I purposely didn’t take my phone or watch so we could just play. And we stayed for over an hour and half! I was starting to get board but the kids kept me on my toes and then, they suddenly decided it was time to go.
So, we packed back up and headed home. Blueberry fell asleep on the drive home (2 hours before her normal nap time) and despite my efforts to wake her, she was racked. Piglet and I got McDonald’s drive-through and ate a nice lunch while Blueberry slept.
Once she woke up, she finished my fries because McDonald’s gave me ALL THE FRIES EVER and we went about our day. The were exhausted by bedtime and were asleep by 7:15.
