Thank god for long weekends. The extra day meant that he could paint AND spend a full day with us. And considering he leaves on Wednesday for a week long camping trip...we needed this time with him.
The girls kicked off the day right by sleeping in until 8:30! Unheard of for them...especially on a day off. We talked over breakfast about how we would spend the day. In the end we unanimously chose "the beach".
So we packed up the car with spare clothes, towels, blankets, snacks, shovels and pails and set off. Destination: Crescent Beach.
Finally hunger took over and we brushed off (most of) the sand and took a walk in search of sustinence.
After lunch the next logical stop was for ice cream...decisions decisions.
At the end of the day we had a bathtub full of sand, exhausted kids and some great new memories. I'm pretty sure that's what long weekends are all about.
