Little Bit of Life ... Flood at the Beach

So, last week was Spring Break.
My mom, sis, Lucy, and I headed to the beach for a little girls' night.
This is what we got to drive through to get there:
And this picture actually doesn't do it justice ... because about 15 feet further, and that car's headlights were pretty much UNDER the water.
I could no longer take pictures at that point because I was trying not to have a nervous breakdown.

I have never been so scared driving in my whole life.

But after driving for 2 hours .... then waiting in line to "cross the river" for another hour and a half, I was not about to turn around and go home.
(Okay, the real reason was we all had to go to the bathroom NOW.)

It rained the entire time we were there, but we did sneak out onto the beach for a little swingin' in the rain!


(Aunt Steph joined in on the fun...)

This girl LOVES to swing.
Even in the rain.
Here's hoping your "Spring" breaks are a little more Spring-like than ours! :-)

P.S.  Things are a bit crazy around here right now.  Forgive me if I'm a little MIA for another week or two ... I promise not to disappear entirely. :-)
