Last year we lived at the beach…and this year sadly enough we have neglected it! I always have good intentions to make it there, but then it’s cloudy and chilly or Hallie could really use a nap, or any other excuse I seem to make up! But with the help of some friends, I made it, for my first time of the summer.
Although I love the beach, I quickly remembered I hate sand, I loathe sand. I hate the feeling of sand, I hate out it gets everywhere…everywhere. I hate walking with flip flops that have sand on them. It’s like fingers running down a chalkboard to me. So I tend to sit in the grassy area (I know you’re probably thinking- since when have beaches had grassy areas, but this one does!) and then I get the best of both worlds. But I was with a group of friends so I thought it would be awkward to sit in the grass by myself. So I buried my feet in the sand with the rest of them and pretended I liked the feeling!! Despite the sand issue, we had a great time. Hallie was inseparable from her friend Paige and I had a great time with friends. I always enjoy myself once I’m there, it’s the getting there I have difficulties with. Now that I remember how cool it is I want to go back every day- unfortunately it closes next week. Maybe next year we will show more affection to our wonderful friend the beach.
I totally agree with you when it comes to the sand! I hate going to the beach because of the way the sand leaves my feet feeling. I try to avoid sand at all cost.
And you call me a "neat-freak"? But, I do agree – although, it is worth it for the fun it provides. It was great to see you. Next stop CHICAGO! Seriously, someday soon.
That's the cutest picture of Paige and Hallers! I'll do anything for a copy of it!!!!
