Barefoot Blessing Beach Blast
Daddy got sunburned on his feet the first day out on the beach. Poor guy! They were swollen, red and HOT....now they are RED and Itchy! Poor thing...he is still having a hard time with his feet and it's been a week! His 2nd day on the beach he thought he would play it safe and just stay out of the sun and under the umbrella for shade. Well, he didn't put on sunscreen, thinking the umbrella would protect him. WRONG!! Very Wrong, he was burnt to a crisp! He sat under the umbrella for about 3 hours, then cooked on the way home, by the time he reached home he had to remove his shirt from the pain. He saw how red he was and realized what he had done. He is still suffering from that burn too. Finally starting to peel around his shoulders, ears and face. He is quite pitiful to look at. I guess in our mature years we don't "tan" as we once did.
All in all, despite sunburns and itching, we had a fabulous time! I especially enjoyed the peaceful days of doing nothing. While my Mom and Step Dad didn't get to stay the whole time, we missed them, but made the most of our time together! During the week we had beautiful weather, but on the days we needed a rest from the sun and beach the Lord provided rain. Those days we spent inside, doing a little homeschooling, playing cards with my Mammaw and making memories for a lifetime.
THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES MOM & DAD!!!!!
Barefoot Blessings to you all!!
