4th of july getaway July 7th, 2012
We spent the past few days relaxing with family at Rehoboth Beach. It was a really nice getaway and a great change of pace to see fireworks on the beach after spending the last several 4th of Julys in DC. The weather was hot and sunny almost the entire time and the ocean was perfect for cooling off. We did lots of walking, ate ice cream every day (including some made with our handcranker!), fed the turtles and fish in Silver Lake, visited the farmers market, window shopped along the boardwalk, ate too much taffy, lounged in the sand to watch beachfront fireworks, took a morning yoga class on the beach, and just had a generally great time decompressing. Our stay ended up being extended a few days due to Bowser’s unfortunate visit to the Animal Emergency Hospital. We found out the hard way that Bostons don’t make great beach dogs after he came down with puppy pnemonia due to water in his tiny lungs. It was a bit of a scare for us, and we felt like bad irresponsible parents, but luckily he is on antibiotics now and seems to be making a full recovery. He just looked like he was having such a fun time playing on the beach with Tiki and chasing waves that we didn’t realize he was taking on quite a bit of salt water. Lesson learned on that one.
Now we’re back in DC, unpacking and getting life things back in order, ie laundry and emptying sand out of everything. I keep eyeing up the fudge I brought home for Dad, trying not to open it before I can give it to him
