Remember that birthday promise I made to Tim and Josh all of about, oh, three days ago?
Well, today I almost broke it.
It was a bank holiday here in England, which means Tim had the day off. Knowing how much I love the ocean, he looked up a beach (with sand; not rocks) for us to go to today.
Too bad the weather hadn’t gotten the memo that it was a holiday today.
It was so cold.
This is the view through the windshield of our car as I sat in the car, refusing to get out and go down to the beach.
I didn’t say I was proud of myself.
It was just so cold.
And then I remembered my promise.
That stupid promise.
And so, I got out of the car and went down to join Tim and Josh on the beach.
There I am.
Can you see me under my three layers and huge winter jacket?
Proud of myself for even getting out of the car, I sat and watched Tim and Josh play in the sand.
They were having so much fun, it eventually convinced me to join in too.
Josh and I even went for a walk down in the water.
We had so much fun jumping and splashing around.
It was completely worth the cold and rain, getting to splash around with Josh today.
