The other weekend was summer weather at it’s best. We had planned a fun day at the beach with friends and their daughter. Setting up a time to head out to the beach was the challenge. If we went before nap time, then we’d really need to hurry and be super mindful of the clock. We decided to go after nap time. Of course, our kids let us know that they didn’t care about no stinking schedule.

Both kids finally went down for their naps later than usual. You know what that means? Both kids slept FOREVER! They didn’t wake up until much later in the afternoon. As a result our day of fun in the sun day at the beach, turned into this:

Yes, the 80 degree day turned into 60 degrees and we were on the beach wrapped in blankets! HA! It was still fun. The kids didn’t seem to care so much that it was getting chilly. They were still running around and playing. They also got to see dolphins! My son was still talking about that days later.

I’m guessing next time, we’ll take our chances with a day time run to the beach.

  1. Whenever I try to plan things around her nap time, it never worked out. She either never went down or went down and stayed down.

    I don’t blame you for taking your chances next time. As for the kids, if it’s a day out playing, they don’t care if its a blizzard out there, they’ll have fun. Us on the other hand will be cold.

  2. Isn’t it amazing how kids just don’t care? They can play in the rain, jump around in the freezing snow, and even stand to swim in cold water. They know how to make a fun time out of anything.

  3. I always go back and forth on the “planning around nap time” thing. For my kids, it seems to work to pack them up for an excursion just before nap time, let them sleep on the drive there and then play, play, play. That has worked for us but I know it doesn’t work for all kids.

  6. lord this cali weather has not been great. I don’t know whats going on. Jas and I went to the park the other weekend and it was supposed to be 80 out. It was more like 60( this was probably the same weekend) and she had on a cute little romper. IT was breezy but she wore it anyway lol.

    You guys look snuggly lol

  7. Too cute!
    It’s funny cause when we were living in the north 60 degrees we would have been wearing shorts and definitely no coat. lol
    I love that you made the most of it!
