When you rent a 'beach house' there is a reasonable expectation that at least some of your days will be spent hanging out at ... the beach! Thus far, (3 1/2 days in) we have been able to spend a total of about 3 1/2 hours at the beach. It's just a little cold and a lot windy.
So considering that we have 3 1/2 more days here, we realized that it is time to reconsider our plans for the rest of the week. Our original thought was to go to New Orleans on Wednesday, but it is a 3 1/2 hour drive (if you take the ferry route, which conveniently doesn't run early or late enough in the day to justify the rest of the drive ... We would have about 3 1/2 hours in New Orleans, which is no better than a layover between flights). We just can't justify that with 16 kids in two big vehicles.
Our older boys seem to be working off 3 1/2 hours of sleep each night (what did we expect putting two 11-year olds and two 13-year olds in a room together?!)
Our respective newest additions to our families seem to need about 3 1/2 naps each day. But it also takes 3 1/2 hours to get them to take a nap ... So that's fun!
And this is my 3 1/2th blog post ... Since its not really fair to count it as a full post. :)
Song of the Day:
It isn't a 3 1/2 song, but "3AM" by KLF is pretty close to the craziness of the lifestyles of this two-family beach house experience! Fun, crazy, exhausting, exhilarating, and just a darn good time regardless of the weather, time of day, or experiences we're having!
(My aplogies, but the video is quite terrible upon further review, but I bet you'll remember the song!) :)
