Once we hauled our lazy behinds out of bed, we slathered on a gallon of sunscreen and gathered up our boogie boards, shovels, pails, sand chairs, beach umbrella, beach towels, sunglasses, coolers and, of course, cameras. Heard the obligatory do-we-really-need-all-this-stuff lectures from our husbands. Gave the obligatory yes-we-really-do-please-load-the-car-and-by-the-way-you're-cooking-dinner response. And we were off to our first day at the beach. Stay tuned for more photos...I'm hoping to sneak the skim-boarding photos in before Mindy catches wind of it.
