Hitting the beach! Shovels, sunscreen, towels and lunch are about the only things we packed when the neighbors invited us to go. Kids loved playing in the sand, watching the motor boats go by and making ‘big’ waves for them to splash in. The rocks at the back of the beach were perfect for playing and peeing (if you are 3 and almost potty trained and can’t quite make it to the real bathrooms in the parking lot).
And, it was so much fun that when we got home and read the fine print on the bottom of our parking ticket, it said it was valid through noon the following day – so, of course, we went again!
