Time to Get Away

Where do people who live in Beachtown go when they go on vacation? The beach of course! Even though we live just six miles from the ocean, we have only been to the beach four times this whole season. Renting a house right on the beach forces us to take the time to appreciate it. We're at the beach for a whole week with two other families. The other five adults (excluding me) have known each other since college, which I think is pretty cool. This is the first year that the adults have been outnumbered by the children, courtesy of two adorable baby twin girls that joined one of the families this year. Yes, we think their parents are very brave too.

Our car was packed to top, but I'm not really sure why since we brought nothing but t-shirts, shorts, and swimsuits to wear. Ok, I did bring two pairs of flip-flops, but so far I've only had to put them on a couple of times.

Our house this year is AWESOME. There are four big bedrooms - one for each family and one for the older kids. Here's a view of the house from the beach:

And here's a view of the beach from the house:

Jackson was a little freaked out by the waves at first, but by the second day, we were having a hard time getting him to come inside even after hours of playing in the surf. We're on day 3 of the trip and miraculously no one has gotten seriously burned yet. Jackson is doing remarkably well considering that he's going to bed super duper late and still getting up early.

Tonight we are headed to fireworks on the beach...life doesn't get much better than this.
