Last weekend was one of those rare weekends that Donnie actually has off Saturday and Sunday, so we decided we'd take the boys on a day trip to the beach in Delaware. We got off to a later start than we had planned, but we figured we'd find a cheap hotel and just spend the night. I think everyone else had the same idea, but had maybe planned a bit better, because there wasn't a hotel anywhere near the beach (or even an hour away) that had a room available. We joked that the trip was doomed from the beginning. There was an insane amount of traffic, the credit card system was down at the gas station where we stopped, there was a slushie spill all over the backseat, and poor Benny got stung by a jellyfish! We ended up spending the afternoon at Lewes Beach splashing around during low tide and playing in the sand, eating dinner in town, and making a quick stop at the Seashell Shop to make up for not having time to actually go shell combing. Despite the bumps along the way and having a less than ideal amount of time, we had a fun little trip and next time we will make reservations ahead of time!
