Beach 2011

This year's trip to the beach was a little 'off.'  Last year we had the oil spill to throw us in a loop.  This year, well, we had several things.

First, a few days before we were to hit the road we found out Pops wasn't going to get to go with us.  This was sad news for us.  And really sad news for Pops.

We had planned to leave on Friday afternoon after swim lessons and drive half-way, but Grant started feeling sick.  He had a fever of 102 and a severe headache.  On top of that, Drew was saying that his ear hurt.  Motrin and a nap did little to no good for Grant.  We opted to wait it out and leave on Saturday

The kids woke up the next morning feeling a bit better.  Grant was feeling a lot better actually.  Drew was "ify" so we pumped him up with some Motrin and hit the road.

The trip wasn't too bad.  The boys watched probably no less than 6 hours of DVD's and Drew took about a 1 hour nap.  No need to document any more of the treacherous detail (yes, I could keep going).  Let just say I took Drew to a walk in clinic on Sunday and was diagnosed with an ear infection.  He didn't feel better consistently until Wednesday.  And, it was the worst ear infection we have probably ever endured (and we've endured a lot!).

Fast forward to Wednesday.....

I think I got this exact same picture last year.  Same hat, same shirt.  It's still cute.

Beach bumb.

My guys.

Yeh!  A pic of mommy and daddy.

A great dinner night at Lu Lu's.

My world.

The kids ask at least once a week when they can go back to the beach.
