beach days

This summer we've been going to the beach on Tuesdays. We head out of town around 11 and spend the afternoon on the sand. By the time we pack up and leave after 4, the kids are absolutely wiped out and a beautiful quiet settles over the car as I drive home. Our afternoon is spent with our friends, digging giant holes, running in the waves and trying our best not to eat sandy snacks. The only thing I don't enjoy is that it takes me nearly a week to clean up all the sand that gets tracked into our house. By the time I get everything out it's time to pack up and go again. But you see, I'm a clean freak and so it is kind of a sick pleasure to sweep the floors and do laundry.....yeah, I know, I'm sick......
