Every morning we have the same discussion at our house.

Me: Paige, what do you want to do today.

Paige: Go to the Beach!!!

The same answer every day.

Wouldn't you like to go out back and swim in the pool?

No, that's boring!!!!!

But mommy likes the pool because she can have cold drinks from the fridge and read her book without worrying that the tide will take you away.
No thank you. I want to build sand castles with Garrett!!!

We have a sand box in the back yard and you could pretend you are at the beach.

I'm sorry, we can't go to the beach everyday. You will just have to swim in the back yard.

The last time we went to the beach a dozen people were saved by the life guard. The undertow's have been awful this year. Every time we go to the beach I am sure one of the kids will drown.
They can't understand why I might want to just throw them into the pool and enjoy a cold drink and a nice book without having to watch them frantically every second.
I know I'm boring. My poor poor kids.

We only go to the beach once a week these days.

It's all my old heart can take. Especially when you have kids who show NO FEAR WHAT SO EVER.
The life guard told Paige to not go so far out. She told him it was OK, she was a good swimmer.
He laughed and then kept his binoculars on her the entire time. She is my only child that has not been saved by the life guard this summer. They also include several adults who have come with us and have had the life guards drag them out of the water. Very embarassing when you are a 40 year old woman. No, it was not me!!
Aww, the lazy days of summer. How long until they are over?

Getting saved the the lifeguard is a little too exciting to me. Looks like fun at the beach!

We went to the beach when we were in cali, and boy was scary. One minute, my daughter is standing next to me, the next, she is on the shore...the tide in was that strong. I was watching 7 children like a hawk, and wanting to die every few seconds, because I only have 2 eyes. Plus, it took us longer to wash the sand off then we swam. I don't think so. LOL.
