A side trip to the beach {Wordless Wednesday}

August 13, 2013

We live all the way west, about 30 minutes from the beach. Our dentist is all the way east, maybe about 5 minutes from the beach.

The benefit of having a dentist so far away from home but close to the beach? You guessed it. An unexpected side trip to said beach -after an all clear for all three kiddos… no cavities – and some lunch at BurgerFi.









Linking up with Hilary and …

    Okay, I want to live near your dentist! 😉 (and you…)

    • Susi August 14, 2013 at 11:46 am

      Ha ha. I’d love that, Elaine. 🙂

    I’m totally more a mountain girl than a beach girl, but this is awesome. I want to go to the beach! (not to the dentist, though ;))

    • Susi August 14, 2013 at 11:47 am

      Kerstin, I have always loved the mountains, and hiking and stuff but I so love the openness of Florida and the ocean…

    omygod you live there. so beautiful. I don’t think I’d ever get tired of the beach. Lucky duck.

    • Susi August 14, 2013 at 11:47 am

      Sarah, I don’t think, I’ll ever get tired of it either. I love it.

    Ha I need to think about this when I pick out a new dentist. How fun

    • Susi August 14, 2013 at 11:48 am

      Ha ha. Good luck! 🙂

  • Claudia August 14, 2013 at 6:44 am

    Great concept 🙂 Lovely beach, but… didn’t you jump into the water?!

    • Susi August 14, 2013 at 11:49 am

      No jumping in the water this trip – we were not prepared for an actual beach day and being Floridians, we don’t actually sit at the beach in the middle of summer!!! 🙂

  • Katie E August 14, 2013 at 7:25 am

    I wish I could get to the beach so easily! Great pictures. And how grown up is your oldest girl looking?

    • Susi August 14, 2013 at 11:50 am

      Katie, she is growing in leaps and bounds… it’s scary.

  • Eli@coachdaddy August 14, 2013 at 11:46 am

    Geez, I’d even go to the proctologist if it meant a trip like this!

    • Susi August 14, 2013 at 11:51 am

      Ha ha ha. You must like the beach quite a bit then? 🙂

      • Eli@coachdaddy August 14, 2013 at 1:10 pm

        And ice cream. Only if they have ice cream.

  • Mama Melch August 14, 2013 at 1:46 pm

    No cavities = ice cream for us too! Fun fun fun at the beach is always a great surprise way to cap off a day, though a little more difficult for those of us in the midwest. Maybe it’s time for a visit down south again?

    • Susi August 14, 2013 at 5:08 pm

      It was fun. Just a great, relaxing afternoon.

  • Greta August 14, 2013 at 3:26 pm

    Ahhhhhh, so jealous! And great job on the all clear at the dentist, kiddos!

    • Susi August 14, 2013 at 5:08 pm

      Ha! They got lucky, Greta. 🙂

  • abby August 14, 2013 at 4:55 pm

    it looks like your children had tons of fun at the beach. That’s great that your children do not have any cavities that is always a plus!

    • Susi August 14, 2013 at 5:07 pm

      I am always happy when we come away cavity free… they don’t have the best dental routine, as much as I am always harping on it!!! And yes, they love the beach. 🙂

  • Katrin August 14, 2013 at 7:55 pm

    Beautiful! I would love to be at that beach right now. With a cocktail in one hand and a book in the other.

    • Susi August 14, 2013 at 11:13 pm

      That sounds heavenly – as long as the kids are not around!!! 🙂

  • Kim@Co-Pilot Mom August 14, 2013 at 8:45 pm

    I love side trips – and a beach trip would almost make me look forward to going to the dentist. Looks like such a beautiful beach!

    • Susi August 14, 2013 at 11:15 pm

      It is pretty nice. I love to stop by there specifically – lots of fun times. 🙂

    […] into hiding as soon as he sees the lens pointed his way. I got these shots yesterday, on our little outing. It wasn’t easy and hubby did his best to get a few shots in.  As you can see, we did have […]

    I am a beach girl and you are so lucky to be so close to the beach (or your dentist). This is a good incentive to get kids to visit the dentist. Just like me, my kids fear the dentist too.

    • Susi August 16, 2013 at 1:02 pm

      I think, I’m pretty lucky that all three of my kids really don’t mind going to the dentist. It’s something that needs to be taken care of and our dentist as well as the hygienists are very good with the kids. 🙂
