It's a GOODe Life: Sandy Lemonade

What's a GOODe family to do when our family vacation to Florida gets derailed by a budget bustin' truck repair?

We grab our shovel and pail and bring the beach to our house! 

Stay-cation 2010 is well underway.

Please ignore the very wrinkly sweatshirt on the Puddie... irons need vacations too after all.

Truth be told, this sandbox has been the talk of many, MANY conversations.

Conversations at 6 a.m. even. 

Did I mention we were on vacation?

Add has had a Christmas-morning-esque obsession with her new sandbox.

I don't think she misses the beach one bit!

And, ya know what? I don't either :)

Truck repairs- $,$$$. 10 bags of sand -$20. Sand Toys- $5.

6 GOODe Thoughts:

What a fun 'stay-cation'! And I agree with you.... it looks like Add loves the sand and doesn't miss the beach at all! Sorry about the truck repairs....yuck.
Have a wonderful stay-cation and enjoy your week :)

Looks like you're having fun...that's the best part!

Cute. I was looking for a story about lemonade with sand in it, but now I get it - you made life lemonade!

So cute! Sometimes life has a way of derailing our plans just so we can be reminded of what's really important, I think. (Not that you need much help with that awesome little life coach you've got living with you! :) Believe me, our plans are in a state of constant derailment around here! haha! So glad that you found a way to have just as much fun & make just as special of memories!

I wanna sandbox!
I wanna sandbox!!!
When I was little (Add's age) We lived in Miami.
We were at the beach a lot.
I loved the sand.
Your pictures brought back memories-
have fun on your staycation!
I wanna sandbox!!

Thanks ladies! Ya'all are welcome at our sandbox anytime!
