It was hot. I really wanted to go to the beach today.
But, we were still under restrictions. Beach-going, felt like a no-no.
I had read an article the other day where it was explicitly stated that sunbathing wasn’t allowed.
But beach… it’s exercise, right? In some ways it was just like taking your kids to the park, and that was allowed. I put the idea to Hubbie – why don’t we walk through the shallow waters of the beach, across the whole expanse of beach, and then turn around and go back?
And we’ll just conveniently be holding towels and wearing our swimsuits?
His answer was definite.
“If I’m going to the beach I want to sit down!”
Fair enough. He had been running around all day, so he kinda didn’t wanna be running around more, plus in HEAT.
But then I got another idea…
Baby girl was rapt. I’m sure her excited squeals could be held all the way down the street, as we pelted each other with balloons in the backyard. It was a WHOLE HEAP of fun, and it actually did cool us down, so much so that we were pretty good the rest of the day.
There. A totally inventive and fun way to keep chill. And there’s exercise involved there too, so you don’t miss out… all the bending over and picking up of broken balloon bits off your backyard grass, later.
