The fam had such a great time at the beach on Wed that we decided to do it again on Wed. The results were less "beachy" because the weather didn't cooperate. It was cloudy and windy. A little too cold for any of us but Max to really enjoy the surroundings.

Luckily, there's this giant indoor "Beach House" right there on the beach for days like this that has rides and arcade games and other fun things to do. Of course, the Beach House turns a pretty profit for its troubles. Here's what $21 will buy you on a cold day:

Max riding a horse and waving to all spectators on each go-around a wave that smacked of entitlement, i.e., "Hey guys, look at me, I'm the new King of England. You should definitely be enjoying this show because it's cool to watch special people like me do stupid things like ride a horse in a big circle."

Max getting his face painted like a "monster" and being so thoroughly enthralled by his own appearance that he spent several minutes screaming at his reflection in a nearby garbage can and by repeatedly kissing the mirror while he was in the middle of getting his face painted.

You missed the YW dinner and cake auction. Good times. You'd better be there next year! Sondra's toffee went for $75 per tin. I just got all caught up on your recent posts--thanks again for writing!
