ellie sees the beach for the first time
in my mind, i thought it would include sandcastles, swim-suits, warm sand, and maybe even a sunburn.
in reality, it included fog, wind, sweatshirts (though i forgot ellie's so she got to wear mine...a hilarious sight all on its own) and sand in all the wrong places.
funny how life does that, huh? lets our brains make something out to be waaay different than it really is.
but even though the reality resembled nothing that my mind had imagined, it was an incredibly fun and memorable day...and i wouldn't have changed it. not one bit.
we just hope for ellie's sake (since she insists upon going in the icy water) that next time the sun doesn't decide to hibernate as soon as we get there.
needless to say:
we love the beach.
and we can't wait to go back for more!
oh yes, and don't forget...THURSDAY is the LAST DAY to enter my giveaway. for more deets, go here.
