We went to the beach again this weekend. It was gorgeous and beautiful. I know that you are completely jealous, so I won't brag. Did I mention that we only live an hour from the beach?
Of course, I forgot to bring the camera, so I don't have any photos to share. Sorry. I have a smart group of readers, so I know that you didn't honestly expect me to remember the damn camera. At this point, I'd probably forget my head if it wasn't attached to me.
Guess what? I didn't fall in the ocean this time! And Porgie wasn't traumatized!
However, I did forget to bring her sun hat. We decided to stop at a little beach shop before heading down to the shore. The store had an awful selection. The baby sun hats didn't have any ties on them. I searched the whole damn selection and I couldn't find one hat that tied. So, we ended up buying a khaki hat, which we could not use. It kept blowing off of Porgie's head. Who the hell designs a baby sun hat without ties? A jackass, that's who. Of course, I am the bigger jackass because I bought the damn hat.
We also bought Porgie some sand toys, which she thoroughly enjoyed. John showed her how to shovel sand into the bucket. I was surprised when she instantly started shoveling sand. She is getting so smart. It is amazing how quickly she can learn a new skill.
So, we played in the sand, splashed in the water, and reapplied sunscreen every 10 minutes (because I am super parnoid about getting sunburned). Porgie is so well behaved at the shore. She happily plays for hours, with nary a peep.
By the end of the beach day, Porgie was exhausted. I could see in her little face that she was extremely tired. The ride home was pretty rough - lots of crying. John gave her a quick shower, and we put her right to bed. She was out like a light within 30 seconds.
Overall, my weekend was wonderful. What did you do?
