Yes, it is the 22nd of October. And yes, it was near 80. And yes, we played hooky and went to the beach! It was gorgeous! And the water temp hasn't cooled down much, so you can still swim.
I was able to talk my dear hubby into taking off and escaping with us too! AND, to top it all off, we took our little dog Maddie to the beach with us--her first trip! (It's usually too hot to take her).
Not long after we got there we all took a long walk. When we came back to our spot, there was another family next to us--and here it was someone we knew! LOL So, we had a chance to visit a bit--and the mom was kind enough to take a family picture of us! :0)
My son loves nothing better than to dig a huge hole in the sand...what is it about boys and diggin' anyway!? LOL
And, as much as I try not to think about it... now that I have a daughter who is almost 18...I had to wonder how many more trips we would make with our whole family together...I thanked God many times today for this one! :0) It was a blessing of a memory that I will always treasure in my heart.
