Back From The Beach

The good news is, I wasn't eaten by a shark while at the beach.

The bad news is, I didn't really tan.

See, I either burn or...nothing.

So I'm still rather pale. In fact, I'm not sure people would even realize I had even BEEN to the beach.

This is also because we don't go out in the afternoons. It's too hot in the afternoons. We usually go out in the evening, when the air is pleasant.

Anyway, so we're back, and this means I need to play catch up on a number of things. My blog. Laundry. Groceries. (As in, buying some..)

I'll go into further detail about our trip next week.

For now, I'll leave with a picture:

Feeding the seagulls was the highlight of the kid's day. They basically behaved like I do when people offer me cake. (The seagulls, not the kids...)

Seconds after I took the picture, though, I felt a stream of wet down my back and realized that I had been pooped on.

I handled this like a respectable adult.

No, I'm kidding. I immediately was like, "Ew! Help! Is it in my HAIR? Tommy, WHAT DO YOU SEE?"

I behaved like it was nuclear waste or something.

Tommy dipped his towel in the ocean and wiped what he could off.

Rude seagulls.

I knew we shouldn't have tried to feed them apple peels. They were probably like, "You've given us fries before. What's this JUNK?"



  1. In Italy, this is considered a VERY GOOD omen and means you'll be blessed! That help any??

    Glad to see you back!

  2. I would have flipped out! Glad ya'll had a good trip!

  3. Getting pooped on by a bird is suppose to be good luck at least!

  4. Seagulls are just rude. At Sea World here they are known for stealing churros straight out of peoples hands. :(

    Glad you enjoyed your trip! :)

  5. That's a great photo! My boys always liked feeding the seagulls too. Sorry 'bout the poop though. They are pretty bad about that!

  6. congratulations on not getting bit by a shark! the opposite of congratulations on getting seagull poop down your back. i hate birds.

  7. It's suppose to be good luck to be pooped on by a seagull! Hopefully you have some good luck coming your way. x

  8. I feel your pain...we'll be back home from our vacation sometime later this weekend, and we'll arrive to a completely empty fridge and very bare pantry. I'll need another vacation after the grocery trip I've got to take...

  9. Yes.. it is considered good luck to be pooped on... so hopefully something good is coming your way! Hope you had a great trip. Can't wait to hear about it.

  10. LOL Oh I too have heard it's supposed to be good luck so there is that!! Love the pic!

  11. I wear SPF 60 like, all the time. I'm Canadian, what can I say. Anyway, I was in Maui and I was not very tanned, no one could believe I was there two weeks. WHAT? Tanning's bad for you anyway.

  12. Yes, you are just protecting that beautiful white skin so when you are 50{who am I kidding-almost 52) you will still look 42. LOL! Well that is what people tell me! Got to be some good come of being pasty white! Glad you had a great trip. Your babies are so precious!

  13. I once had a seagull snatch a carton of fish right out of my hands. Stupid birds.

  14. This post reminded me of the morning I was on my back deck. Thinking about getting new chairs and spending more time out there. Then a bird pooped on my head. So I still have Same old furniture and I still stay inside!!!
