Vacationing to the Beach With Kids=Exhausting

Beach, ocean, vacation

We got back last Sunday from Florida. A week-long vacation in beautiful Florida. A week-long vacation in paradise, that was full of constant happiness, laughter, and relaxation for me. Wrong!

It took 11 hours to get there. 11 hours with a 2.5 year old and infant. (I’ll pause here for you to think about that)…………………..

On the way down, we thought we were so smart to leave at night and drive the whole way while they slept. HAHAHA! No. They didn’t. On and off the entire way. The entire 11 hours. So, on the way back, we figured we’d just leave earlier in the day, make some stops, take a big break for dinner and time for stretching, and continue on our way. Well, we forgot about the problems that a potty trained toddler would bring to the car. We forgot about how the sun shining in the car would make napping difficult. forgot the Valium for myself, or some strong liquor!

Before kids, I used to love the beach. The sand. The ocean. Setting up my beach chair, towel, and umbrella, ready to sunbathe all day.

Now, with kids, I loathe the sand. Even if you think you brushed it all off of their tiny bodies, it’s still there. You feel it on your sheets in bed. You taste it in your food. Your kid cries when her sandwich falls and is covered by the tiny, granular particles. She later cries that there’s sand in between her toes, in between her butt cheeks, in her ears, etc.

Sand. Hate. It.
