Beach on a Budget

Who needs a swanky hotel when Quality Inn has everything we need?

Who needs an aquarium when Drew is around?

Who needs clothes when the boys wear shorts and no shirts the whole time?

Who needs beach chairs when you can dig a hole in the sand?

Who needs a doctor when you get stung by a jellyfish?

Who needs cornrows when one braid with beads only costs one dollar?

Who needs world class golf courses when the putt putt course has a waterfall?

Who needs to take showers when they're all over the place outside?

Who needs cool bike rentals when we can take our own ragged out bikes instead?

Who needs to buy a skim board when you can find one in the trash can?

Who needs gnarly surfers when I have my own beach bums to watch?

Who needs to watch tv for action when you already have the combination of a five year old, a bike, sand ramps, and another unsuspecting bike rider? Poor girl. She didn't know what hit her.

Who needs a professional photographer when all you need is white shirts, a tan, and Picasa?

Sorry ya'll for no postings lately...
It's a combination of:

1. crashed computer

2. 5 boys under the age of ten are here

3. (sheepishly) new facebook account...

I'll get back to blogging next week...
