Long overdue beach week blog

I think letting this much time pass after beach week before writing the blog was a bad thing. Now that it has been a while it feels like it was a good vacation. It wasn’t. Everyone got sick, it was fairly cold, and I never ate an actual burger form dune burger.

Well, about halfway through the week I started taking score. This pretty much sums up the week.

Beach week score

  • 1 – Vomit covered couch
  • 1 – Diaper rash so bad it bled
  • 1 – Not quite severed finger

  • 2 – Trips to the doctor
  • 1 – Rescued frog from the pool
  • 2 – Not quite so rescued crabs from pool
  • 0 – Nights of solid sleep
  • 5 – Trips to dune burger
  • 3 – Trips to Kitty Hawk

Clearly there is plenty to be grateful on that list, but plenty that made for a less than ideal vacation.

Still, it is nice to have a photogenic set o’ kids:
