My family went to the beach this past weekend, to celebrate my 28th birthday. Also - just to get away.
Away from responsibilities.
Away from reality.
Just - away.
We stayed at "Sea for Two": a little, one bedroom house with a living room, dining room, kitchen, and bathroom. We brought our own food (including stuff to make brownies AND rice crispy treats) and made lots of yummy things in the kitchen, all the while having the roaring ocean as our back drop. The house sat on the edge of a cliff, overlooking the ocean. All weekend it was our soundtrack. The waves would build, build, build and then crash in a white foam.
We went to the outlet mall, we got some good Thai food, we braved going down to the wet and windy sand in the 44 degree weather.
Isaac slept in his pack and play with no problems. Daylight savings time came and went while we were there.
It was a time to relax, reflect, and to feel rejuvenated. I am so thankful for the time we got to spend there.
