Winston's Weekend Getaway

Winston was watching Sponge Bob Squarepants on Saturday morning when he came and asked me if we could go to the ocean and play at the beach.  I tried to explain to him that we live too far away and it's too cold but he kept at it, insisting we go - he has a hard time taking no for an answer.

In one of my more brilliant moments, I said, "why don't we  pretend to go to the beach?"  and told him he to put on his swim suit while I spread out our towels on the living room floor - I mean our beach.  ;)  Winston thought it was a great idea and off he went to get his suit.
I pulled out a couple of our beach towels and some beach toys - and we went to the beach.  :)

First we played in the waves.
 Winston did some cliff jumping into the ocean (our ottoman made a great cliff for him to jump from) and then we lay on our towels to dry off in the sun.  Ahhh!
 Next, we built a sand castle - a Big one. 
After that, we went for a walk on the beach to find seashells.
 We found some starfish - just like Patrick Star on Spongebob. 

And finally found a treasure trove of seashells.  All in all, we had a great time at the beach.  I wonder where we'll go next weekend.  Maybe the North Pole to visit the polar bears.  (I sure love his imagination!)

That's great! It's not just Winston who has a great imagination--it took some creativity to make his beach experience happen! How fun!! Maybe you can save the North Pole for when it's 100 degrees outside and the cold sounds refreshing!

You are such a fun mom! That trip to the beach sounds fantastic. :) Winston is so cute.

that's the best I've heard in a long time. :)
Maybe you can tell him about the aliens I live with and come visit us. We could roll with the tumble weeds, climb pecan trees, and say "olah" to the locals.
