Spontaneous day trip to the Beach

Monday, August 5, 2013






















Last Wednesday, my friend Jamye and I had some local plans but they got cancelled at the last minute.  So we decided to seize the moment and do a quick day trip to Lewes Beach on the Delaware shore! Because...why not?! 

I'm an anti-planner so I loved just throwing some sandwiches together, grabbing towels, a couple buckets & shovels, and hitting the road.  There was not enough time to think about what I might be forgetting.  It's fun to throw the schedule out the window and just enjoy the fact that we live only two hours from the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean.  I'm so glad we did because the weather was perfection and we had a blast.

I'm thankful to have a friend who is willing to be adventurous with me and five kiddos who can go with the flow.  Having DQ ice cream for dinner was also a plus.  Because again... why not?!

  1. LOVE that photo of your little man running--with the umbrellas and the perfectly placed seagull in the background! It is perfect! The one with Sister and her sunglasses is classic, and the perspective on the shovel and feet is great. I couldn't wait to see how your photos turned out, and I'm not disappointed!
    And as for having a friend who's up for spontaneous plans, the feeling's mutual!

    1. The photo of D running with the seagull was actually cropped after realizing how perfect it captured the beach setting. :)

      And by the way, I told Mike that I tried ordering hard ice cream at DQ and he said "Are you not American??!" lol.

    1. Thanks Ashlee! :) I don't get to do these adventures as often as I would like either!
