The "before" in the title actually refers to before Christmas. The car had to go in for service. The Irishman called to say that it would take a couple of hours. The kids and I initiated "Operation Rescue Daddy." When we pulled up to the dealership, Caitlin said, "We are here to save the day!"
We had an hour or so, so we headed to the beach.
(Ignore my finger in this one...)
I wasn't crazy about the idea of burying in the sand, but I was out numbered!
Monkey see, monkey do!
I've been complaining a bit this year about just how warm our winter has been. Days like this help. A little.
We definitely saved the day!
