Of surf,sand,buried tires,a pony ride,and getting to bed early.

I am procrastinating getting ready for Rory's eye exam today- So I figure I will blog about all these awesome pics I uploaded yesterday.The top one is my very FAV, so I guess you could just stop reading now :p

Sooo, we woke up, fairly late for a beach trip, but early by our standards... and headed out-

I did not edit this pic- thought it turned out pretty awesome though:

Ri had stopped in and seen some old friends of ours(from back when we lived on the beach), and asked if we could borrow some surf boards , thinking Rory might get a kick out of it- no waves at all really though, we almost reconsidered and went to Flagler beach. I did feel a little guilty not taking the dog who had been soo good.
We stopped 1st and bought some towels, and then some Subs. Rory picked out her own sub and gave Ri sort of a hard time- I should have went in..
Well, we eventually made it to the water and got some food in out bellies

She was sooo excited
and a little nervous

After that went out and helped, the little waves were just the right size for her, Ri would push her on one in my direction,and I would grab her when she fell(and she pretty much always fell).. but I couldn't believe how awesome she was for just trying to stand on a board like that.... Hell,
the closest I have come to standing on a board was one of those HUGE HUGE HUGE boards that would take talent to not be able to stand on.

Oh yeah,, Ri managed to bury the prius on the beach:

The lady at the entyway to the beach said they had to tell everyone that there was sugar sand and to dive carefully. I was nervous Ri was in the middle of telling me how he had driven through snowstorms which were way worse... then it started to get deeper/softer, he thought he could head to the water and find harder ground- and thats when he buried her. damn.not in a parking area either- one of the 4wheeler beach cops stopped to tell us,but made no effort to assist us.
Ri was pretty sure he could get move it right back out with a little work.
after all that surfing and swimming Rory was getting tired, I really think she fell asleep for a split second on the old surf board.

In Ri's attempt to free the car- he found out he was more stuck than he thought- and getting more , he started calling around for help.A really nice little old man offered to help right as RI got ahold of someone , his boss from the taco stand.
A few mins later his boss was there ready to pull his car out with his truck... took one look at it and said "Man, just take some air out!" they let some air out of tires and gave a little push- and we were free-
Bye, bye beach
After filling up the air in our tires, and going through a carwash
Ri wanted to pic up some oil for frying- so he dragged me and Rory in our freezing wet bottom beach coverups, through the store.
Rory got a cookie and a pink vitamin water so she was happy(well she said she would have been happier with a balloon).
Rory wasn't ready to go home just yet, so we took her to a park
As soon as we pulled up she let out the biggest scream that there was a carosel, she ran full speed up to it, and scared me senseless running through the exit gate and trying to jump on the pony-
Well,I was cringing and yelling " wait, be careful!!!"- but the ticket guy laughed said "let her go, she's fine" and Ri handed him a dollar:

Ri didn't have much luck catching pic of us moving, Rory picked and inner pony.
she said it was the best pony ride ever. I was surprised she loved it soo much, she used to hate the moving rides like that (she says " the one at the zoo scared me, it leaned, and was too far up")

Then Rory got some playground time waiting for sunset:

She was trying to swing as high as the big boys next to her

She had a blast making freind in the little playground,we sort of had to drag her to the car.. she was also getting very tired.
She insisted she would stay awake if we would stop and buy her some oreos that would really help-
we cranked the music and told her to sing, she said - you have to close your eyes when you sing really big
She was pretty much asleep when we got her out of the car for a potty break and bought her some mini oreos.
Man , was she fussy being kept awake so late.
Got her sandy butt in the shower as soon as we got home- she is ussually sort of scared of showering, but a butt covered in sand made it "feel sooo nice , to shower like mommy"
Ri made veggie corn dogs for dinner, with fries- yum!

I handed the laptop over to fussface Rory ,while I uploaded pics- and she played playhouse disney ... next thing I know I am waking up from apperantly falling asleep cuddled on the couch with Ri, I look over and Rory is passed out in front of the laptop..It has been a long long time since I was getting ready for bed at oneam! After getting us all in bed we slept all night!!

11 am now, and I should be waking her,nervous about this dr visit,and going out with Ri's mom to it... and to top it off I can't fint any of Rory's medicade paperwork -sigh-

Well , I should go- I reaaaaallly don't wanna
