We had an amazing time this afternoon at the beach. We drove to a local beach, about 30 minutes from where I live. We took a picnic with us. My sister had to use her GPS on her phone as she wasnt sure of how to get there, and of course she missed a turn and we ended up going round in circles for 20 minutes lol. But we got there eventually. We were hoping the sun would shine but it was overcast, on the way there we had a little rain, and mom was praying to the angels that the rain would stop. Emily thought that was great. She loves angels and she got a real kick that our mom was praying to them. Once we unloaded the car when we got there, we sat and ate our picnic. It was yummy. Mom had made me a roast beef sandwich, and I had some crisps, and a cake also. I brought an apple with me, with the intent to eat it but I never did. After our picnic we sa for a while on the sand, just hanging out, watching my nephew playing. He was looking for crabs. I have a video which I’ll post in a little while, its a video of him finding a crabs leg. He’s so funny. He was so happy on the beach. He’s the type of child you can take anywhere, he’s easily entertained, and he never throws tantrums or hissy fits. Unlike my niece, whose 12 now, and had no interest in being on the beach, she kept asking when we were going home, and in the end, when we went for a walk along the beach, she went back to the car and sat in the car on her phone. We walked the entire length of the beach, a long walk. It was so cool, we took off our shoes and we got to paddle, there were small pools of water, and it was so nice to dip our toes in the water. When we got back to the car I gave mom money to get us all icecreams. We ate them while we drove home. They were big 99 icecream cones, with a chocolate flake bar in them, a cadburys flake bar, which is all chocolate and oh so yummy. I loved being on the beach, and I am super happy that I got to go. I didnt end up taking Nitro with me. I left him home and when I arrived home he almost jumped on me knocking me over lol. I had to go pee right when I got home, and while I was in there mom said she’d let him out for me. Well, he wouldnt go out for her, instead he came running into the bathroom where I was, opening the door with his nose. It was sooo cute. Eventually I got him to go out to pee, and then I fed him. And now I am sitting here with my coffee enjoying a little bit of quiet time.
