Running Along The Beach

i heart faces Challenge, Week 23: Play

This is Angry Kid. This is Angry Kid after his first jaunt in the ocean.  Yea, I know, we live in Orange County.  We have never taken Angry Kid to the beach before. Angry Husband loathes the sand, the beach, the beach traffic, and the parking. I had an impulsive moment, go figure, and jumped in the car.  We headed towards Huntington Beach.  It was immensely crowded.  The AVP Tour was going on this weekend.  I obviously didn’t get the memo with my spontaneous beach trip.

Oh and by the way, Angry Kid loved the ocean.  Even after a medium wave came up and smacked him to the ground. He wants a surf board.  I told him that he needs to learn to swim first.  Did you notice all the sand in his hair? He had also just spit out a ton of salt water and sand that he ingested.  He is a boy. He will survive.

Fruit and Yummy Fruit Dip

My parents came over for dinner on Memorial Day. We fixed up some last minute hamburgers and hot dogs. I will say last minute, because I picked up some things from the grocery store at 4pm, on Memorial Day, on the way home from work.  I was tempted by all of the goodies aka cupcakes, cookies, and other sweet goodness.  By I actually chose to be a little bit healthy, who knew!  I bought some fruit to cut up, because it looked delicious and practically screamed, “summer”.

I had to make “the dip” for the fruit though. It is a very simple and “not so healthy recipe”.  8 oz. of cream cheese plus a jar of marshmallow cream.  You mix it together.  It is that simple, seriously.

I had to throw in another beach photo.  Angry Husband was burying Angry Kid in the sand. Do you see the jeans and t-shirt? I said it was “spontaneous”.  Angry Husband finally gave in, and sat down.  He even made some castles with Angry Kid.  He may have been a little angry about the sand getting anywhere.

It has been awhile since I’ve gone to the actual beach. You know right down where the sand meets the ocean.  I forgot about all of the interesting outfits that people wear the beach.  I saw some inappropriate bathing suits, bikini bottoms with hoodies, people wearing clothes in the ocean, and biker shorts under a one-piece woman’s suit.  I just gave Angry Husband “that look” several times.

Since I’m writing about summer, I thought I would include my lunch from today.  I could not think of anything to eat for lunch. It was way too hot and nothing sounded good.  I decided to go with the “Yogurt” food group, along with the strawberries, gummy bears, and Butterfinger food groups. Yea, I need to go to the gym this week, alot!

And it is just the beginning of June.  I can’t wait to see what the rest of summer brings us!

P.S.  I think I’ve tried all of the local Frozen Yogurt Shops.  Yogurtland is my fav!

My daughter also shows a similar lack of anything resembling fear at the ocean! Loving your lunch choice too.

I'm glad you explained why the hubs was in jeans at the beach. Lucky for me, I HATE frozen yogurt. Taste salty to me. The kids love it. We go every Friday and I just drink water. Not tempted at all. Yuck.

Looks like you guys had a great time despite the hoards of people:) I was actually watching the AVP on TV and commenting on how many folks were on the beach just outside the walls of the tourney...
