I decided at the beginning of the summer that a few day trips to the beach would be good. Well, summer went by faster than I imagined, and we didn't make it until the end. On the Thursday before school started, we went to the beach. We had a picnic, spent a few hours enjoying the sun, sand, and salty water, and then we headed home. I think eating dinner in the car on the way home was almost as good as the fun we had at the beach. They were so good, and I'm so glad we made it there before the end of summer.
