Camping at the Beach

Wednesday, May 15, 2013
Man, it's been a while since I've posted - I thought things were going to slow down some, but that hasn't been the case.

Over the weekend we took the camper down to the beach for a little fun...we did have one heck of a storm Friday night with hail and winds that wouldn't quit, but other than that it turned out to be a beautiful weekend. And the park we stayed at was awesome - it had splash pads, play grounds, pools (one with a swim up bar), laundry, nice facilities, and lots of kids which was great for my two! Our spot was literally right at the splash pad and play ground so it was the perfect spot for us...Michael and I could sit and relax at the camper and watch the kids play.

The park had a lot to keep us occupied, but we definitely had fun at the beach, too! The water was cold, but that didn't stop any of us! The kids played in the mud - and by kids I mean my two little ones and my big one...okay, and me too - and jumped waves for hours!
Jumping waves! #ocean #beach

And Michael played Boy with a Grill and made up a yummy dinner of these guys - and let's just say my kids are now huge crab lovers! They nearly ate 'em all up!
We came back home Sunday and that afternoon ended up getting rear-ended...not once, but twice! How in the world do you hit someone twice! When I felt the second impact I really thought that someone else had hit the car that initially hit us, but there was no one behind her!! I asked her how she managed to hit me twice and she said I swear I hit the brakes. I honestly think she panicked and when she thought she moved her foot to the brake it was still on the gas. Needless to say I'm in a rental while my car is being repaired. Aaron went with me today and I think he made quite an impression on the lady helping me this morning - she was smitten with him! But I can't really say that I blame her!!
Dropping off my car to get it fixed this morning!
I am just glad it was only cosmetic damage to my car and that no one was hurt. Her car had a lot of damage - she hit us so hard that it busted her radiator - immediately there was antifreeze all over the road when we got out to see about everything.

It didn't ruin my Mother's Day in the slightest, though - I had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend with my family and I know we'll make more trips to this park in the future, too. I hope you all had a great one, too!
