Today I am playing along with Mayhem and Moxie!
For today’s topic, the lovely ladies at Mayhem and Moxie have asked participants to write a tribute to that special aspect from their summer vacation. This year is a special year for us because it's the first year we've been able to enjoy our vacation together, and also as individuals...
This week hubby had business near the coast, so the rest of us did what we always do: tag along!
No one wanted the weekend to end... but we had very different reasons:
We all had ideal breakfasts:
The adults: Coffee and newpaper on the balcony in the balmy sunshine overlooking the beautiful North Carolina coast.
The kids: Breakfast in bed, served by mom, while they watch their own t.v.
We all had spa treatments:
Mom: Rubbed her heels, cracked from a summer of endless flip-flop wearing, in the grainy sand to reveal baby-smooth feet.Seriously. All you have to do is grind your heels in the wet, beach sand and when you pull them out you have a pefect pedicure and a big, fat lilly between your ankles. It's worth trying.
The kids: The girls have become champion boogie boarders. Unfortunately, riding big waves means you wipeout. As such we have coined the term "spa treatment" for those occasions when events are particularly catastrophic. For example, you might get the "full body exfoliating polish" courtesy of the sand into which the crushing wave grinds your body. Good times.
We all had stellar meals:
The adults: Grouper, softshell crab... yum.
The kids: Had some of this, which I will admit I love... but it's not seafood.
Clearly we all had fun but I have to wonder...
Were we all on the same vacation?
