A day at the beach!

Yesterday was a BEAUTIFUL day. Weather was in the 80's.

Angel and I wanted to take the kids to the beach ( it' wasn't really my idea cause we all know I'm not a big fan of the beach) and we all had a great time.

We packed up the dogs because Angel said he had taken them before with the kids and they ran and played in the dunes with the kids.

Cool. I want to see the puppies play!

Now, we were a little nervous because we have never taken the dogs on the highway in the back of the truck. We've only taken them down the street to the park. We tied them down so that it wouldn't be possible for them to raise their front paws over the side or tailgait of the truck.

We drove slowly and watched them the whole way.

This is Serena.
She decided it was more fun to stand most of the way and make us piss our pants the whole trip.
She also loved the wind and barked for absolutely nothing!

Then, she did what she always does.
Played with Venus. They started their play-fighting again.

Here's what I was drinking (and believe me...I was drinking a lot).

I will never pass the test to become a Hobo. I could never keep the paper bag on my beer can. It even had a hole in the bottom where my beer kept sliding out.

So we get to the beach and we let the dogs out. They played in dunes...and chased each other...
...and then together.....PRANCED AWAY!

Now, I was panicking because they were just prancing farther and farther away and my voice wouldn't carry because of the fricken "soothing sounds of the ocean."

My babies were running away!!
Then they turned around and came back.

Whew. I was worried.

THEN...a TRUCK DROVE BY....and they ran down the beach after the truck.

Angel had to jump into his truck and chase them down.

I had to run after Angel to help him after he caught the dogs because he wasn't going to be able to lift one into the back of the truck without the other getting away. I caught up with him and the dogs and walked one back with me on the leash.

We gave them some water and tied them up!!

They almost escaped!
No one escapes!!

I'm not letting these dogs get away THAT easily!

Here's Dominique. He dug this little cave out of the dune.

They all took turns taking pics in it.

Miah wanted to be in the water even though it was pretty cold. I didn't get in.

Devyn even went into the water.
ALL of the kids went into the water. I told you..Angel has made them into fish!!
Here's base camp!
We had it made!

That's all of the pictures that I took because by this time..I had a killer buzz going on and the rest of the day was pretty much a blur.

I DO know that Angel didn't drink much and he got us home safely. He made sure that the kids were showered and fed and put in bed.

Rarely have I ever had to place him in the position to take care of the kids because I just wasn't able to. I think this time makes 2.

I woke up at 5:30 this morning and took my shower for work. It's probably because I was passed out at 9pm.

This weight loss had definitely messed up my ability to handle alcohol. I'm glad Daddy was there to take over.

Your beach is prettier than ours!

I love the cave your kids made out of the dune.

We used to raise siberian huskies. We took them to the beach ONCE because they didnt stop running and my ass dont like running after kids or dogs.

I guess that's the last time the dogs are allowed to run free on the beach. Sounds like you all had a great day. Family memories!

I'm cracking up at the can of beer in a paper bag. Lol. The inner "Hobo" is in everyone. I'm not sure but I think you have 4 kids. They all look similar and I keep getting them all mixed up.

You are only seeing part of the beach. Maybe...I haven't seen yours yet.
The dogs were stressing me out until we got them tied up.

You are so right. It is the last time they run free.
It was an excellent day.

Ace C:
I was struggling with it for a while. In the end, the bag was soft enough to use as toilet paper up in the dunes..

Looks like a fun day. Except the chasing dogs part.

Looks like a beautiful day in paradise! You told me you had fun--and I can completely tell!

Love the paper bag. Too bad TX got rid of the open container law. Were you at SPI? Looks familar.

It was a great day. The chasing dogs part was fun only because we got them back.

Yes sir!

Yup, at SPI.
