One Fine Day...


So, everyone (up North,i guess) is jealous that i just got back from the beach...(right below this lighthouse) and we were the only ones there--so nice--i must say there are 6 reasons we Floridians love it here; they are December,January,February,March,April,and May. The rest of the year I would prefer to be where some of you are now--trust me--but at least i live on the East coast so we have a nice breeze all year.
Anyway, this has been one fine day b/c to start, I have had two relatively good nights sleep (the two nights prior I had a bed-wetter and a nightmare scare) so, I love when everyone goes to bed and stays there. So, I started this day awake and happy to snuggle w/ my 5yr.old at 630am this morning. We got to all see a big opossum walking our fence in the backyard this morning. Then a smooth out-the-door to school w/ no kinks. Then I got ready for a playdate at the beach w/ my good friend and her two yr old little guy, loaded up my new minivan (so cool),caught all the green light wave to the beach (love when that happens) and let the little men play themselves out! They fed the pelicans,watched the fish jump,picked shells,made sandcastles and I (as big as i am now) caught a crab for them to stand in awe over! We were right by the lighthouse and the drawbridge so the boys had so much fun watching the cars cross the bridge and the bridge go up and count the boats as they came through--they really had so much fun! (and all this just 5 minutes away). Then I stopped at the Burger King and got my favorite beach treat---the Cherry Limeade Slurpee---they are my favorite summer treat especially when it's hot out and the best part is it's drivethru convenience factor---if they would let me do everything thru a drivethru i think i would--wouldn't that be great! Now my little guy is wiped out and he is sound asleep and I have given myself a pat on the back b/c I have been a good mom for today anyway :0)
disclaimer: in retrospect,this all seemed to have no reflection on how my afternoon turned out :|

I'm sooo ready to move. Mid-April and the temps are still in the 40's here. Ugh.
