Friday, July 2nd, we were planning on leaving for the beach about noon. Travis had a house to finish up and I, being the procrastinator that I am, had a few errands to run. Finally, about 1:30, we hit the road.
I wish I would have taken a picture of the bags before we left. It was borderline embarrassing. We had a total of 14 bags.
(Before you judge, each girl had a toy bag. We also had an overnight bag for a night in the hotel on the way. I had to have a bottle bag. We also packed an ice chest. So, yeah...It added up)
Anyway. We got about 4 hours out of town and stopped for a potty break. Catherine was burning up. I took her temp (Yes, I packed the thermometer in one of those bags). It was 102. We were already so far away and the pediatrician was closed until Tuesday. I gave her some Tylenol and we kept driving.
Saturday morning, we got up, ready to make the rest of the drive and get to the beach! Unfortunately, Catherine was STILL running a fever and was very cranky. We had a rough drive that second day. She wasn't feeling well and we were all ready to get out of the car.
We cooked dinner, watched fireworks and played with sparklers. Later, we sat on the balcony and listened to Hannah talk about her future as a "Sonic Cooker". It was a great 4th of July!
Stay tuned for Part 2 of our Beach Adventure. It involves rhinestones, tiny noses, little steps and LOTS MORE FUN!
