The first night, after getting settled into our motel, we went out for Mexican food. Not the best Mexican food around. We'll just leave it at that. Anthony and I were super tired and ready for a good nights' sleep. The kids, however, were hyper. They were so excited to be at the beach! We did go for coffee afterward, and that definitely helped!
All bundled up and headed for the beach. It was pouring down rain and freezing, and all Talon could talk about was going in the water. They were tired, but Talon was doing his best trying to keep himself awake. Kaitlyn lost the fight.
Alas, Talon surrendered as well!
So sweet. Just watching the water come in then roll back out.
Kaitlyn didn't last 5 minutes outside. She very quickly decided it was too wet, windy, and cold, and wanted to stay in the car with Daddy and Nolan. Talon, on the other hand, wanted to get down to the beach. No one can say I don't love my kids! Talon had a hat. I didn't. I stayed outside with him long after I was soaked to the bone, and he finally got drenched enough that I could convince him to leave. I only brought an extra skirt and shoes, so we had to run to the outlet mall so I could get a sweatshirt to change into before we went to dinner. When we got back in the car, Kaitlyn kept saying, "Mommy, I don't want to go on the beach. I don't like the beach!". She's let us know, multiple times since we've been back, that she doesn't want to go to the beach. Poor kid. We're gonna have to take her in the summer when it's warm so she isn't traumatized for life!
Daddy and Bubbs... hanging out and waiting for dinner at Mo's.
...she discovered tartar sauce. Her face lit up with her first bite. It was priceless!
