Yesterday we took a last minute trip to the beach - a 6 hour round trip drive for 2 hours on the beach.
One of my favorite parts about our trips to the beach are the long car rides for us to talk.
Paul talks best when he drives.
I generally like to spend longer at the beach than 2 hours, but it was the best we could do - and I appreciated Paul's adventurous spirit.
It was the exact crazy and fun and bonding experience we needed after some busy times with work and remodeling.
We didn't tell the boys where we were going until we were nearly there.
They were delighted with the surprise and have talked about it all day today.
And are both begging to go back.
I am too.
