On Sunday, we decided to take a relaxing day trip to the beach. My mother in law decided she wanted to come too so we crammed 5 people into our car (which seats 5 but, it is squished with car seats) and head to the beach for some family fun. The kids were on my last nerve within about 20 minutes. Arguing, being mean, and rude, and they were no picnic either. I decided to just give up and ignore them the best I could. Since I was the one in the back seat with them it was a little hard to do. They were hungry, they wanted the music up, then it was too loud, they were thirsty, then the gum...oh the gum!!! It was insane. By the end of the trip they were pinching my arm flab and I didn't care as long as they were quiet. I had a moment of peace when I was sitting in my chair on the beach, listening the the waves, it was serenity at its finest. I knew this moment wouldn't last long so, I enjoyed every second of it.
