The adventure on the way back from the beach.


Today the Dad's went golfing so S and I decided to take the kids to the beach. We had some trouble finding it but got there eventually. Stinx loved playing on sand. It was lovely to see him in such a beautiful environment. After they played for awhile we decided to head back to S's cottage. She thought we'd go the other way since we got lost on the way. Turns out we got lost the way back too! We actually went in the opposite direction that we needed to. We were pulling the kids in the wagon and they were getting restless, kept wanting to stand up and get out. Finally we made it to a major street and realized we had a far way to go. We saw a bus and decided to get on. The bus is free here! Whoo hoo! Thank goodness. However the bus only went to the ocean and then turned back around. So that ended up being a waste of time. Mind you, Stinx was in heaven riding on the bus. I think when it rains tomorrow we might just cruise around town on the bus. Anyways...When we got off the bus, we saw a bike rental shop and decided to rent a bike as the kids were very fitful and hungry for lunch. So clearly the picture above is the bike we got. The boys sat in the front yellow seats, and S wore Baby E in her Ergo. The bike ride was pretty comical. It was a lot harder to ride that I thought it would be. The toughest spot was this little bridge. Riding up hill in that thing was nuts. But we survived. We finally got to the cottage and had lunch. We decided to return the bike before the boys naps. S drove everyone in the van and I had to drive the bike. I felt like such a dork riding that thing by myself. And when I got to the bridge again S jumped out of the van and helped me peddle over it. On my down from the bridge a car honked at me, I looked over and saw the Dad's... I was soooo embarrassed. And they were so confused. They were wondering where Stinx was.. and when they went over the bridge they saw S walking by herself (back to the van). Oh it was too funny a day. I'm sure it isn't interesting to read about but I swear, had you been there, you'd have thought it was comical!
