Spontaneous Fun

As much as I like having plans ahead of time, I also love a spontaneously fun day.

On Saturday we wanted to go do something fun instead of sitting at home. In the early evening we decided to drive to the small local beach so that Kavi could play in the sand and on their playground. Then we could watch sunset.

On the way there, we needed to eat something and there weren't many options past a certain point. We went to a fast food place(ehh, I know), but they had an old car show going on! They must do it often but we are never at this exact spot even though it's only about 10 minutes away from where we live. Kavi loved that, because he absolutely loves cars and every mode of transportation.

We felt like we weren't even in our town or area for some reason while sitting there. I tried a turkey burger, not bad. We were at Hardees, somewhere we never go.

Then it was on to the beach, about 10 more minutes away. We brought some of Kavi's sand toys and it was so relaxing to just sit there on the sand. It was windy, like it usually is at the beach here. It had been a hot day, but the wind kept us cool enough to enjoy it instead of sitting there sweating.
After sitting for awhile on the beach, we had gone to put our feet in the water. Then we went to the other side of the beach to the playground. I didn't get a picture of the whole thing but the main part of the playground is shaped like a ship. It's cool!
Time went by so quickly! After being at the playground we went back over to a small deck they have near the water to watch sunset.
(this is the Gulf of Mexico, no big waves around these parts)
We don't live very far from this small beach, but we don't go enough! We hadn't been there since last summer. It's very refreshing to do something different and to be outside (without sweating!). I hope we do this more often now. We felt like it was such a fun evening.

We also had a fun Mother's Day! I will post about that at a different time.

Beautiful! It is hard to enjoy the beauty that is right next door to us sometimes though!

What a gorgeous beach! I'm so jealous that you live ten minutes away from a place like that!

Hi, I haven't ever read your blog before but followed Lucy The Valiant (my daughter :) here.

Love the setting soon shots and your little boy is adorable. My little one, Scout, loves cars too. Especially old roundy ones.
