I awoke on a Friday morning at 7:00 a.m. thinking it would be a normal day. We had school and errands planned. My first clue that all was not "normal" was the theme song from "Rocky" blaring through the house. This is Jim's song for me-romantic isn't it? He had told me he had a really busy day Friday. I assumed he meant work day and didn't know he had taken the day off. I made my way downstairs to find the family in the kitchen waiting for me. They were all dressed and told me I had 5 minutes to get ready to go. They wouldn't tell me where.
Here is where we ended up...one of my favorite beaches about an hour from here. So Lovely.
Umm.. except we had a little problem. The Griswald Family ain't got nothin' on us ;o)
After I took this picture Eben looked at me and said, "Next time, we bring a shovel." which just cracked me up.
We were a "little" stuck...
I told hubby to look on the bright side....
We could claim the teenager was driving ;o) Kidding.
Do you know how humbling it is for a Chevy Man to be pulled out by a Ford. Oh. My. The tow guy was getting such a thrill...not to mention our lunch money.
I told the kiddies these are the things family memories are made of. We laughed so hard through the whole thing..which is really all you can do..especially when everyone else on the beach is laughing at you.
One more push..
And we were FREE! Yippee! We headed to the hotel and Jim declared that that Beach Access was now dead to him.
