Sunset at our local beach.
Growing up, we used to do dinner at the beach every Monday night. There was something magical about eating in the sand in your bathing suit, while reliving the fun of the day with friends and loved ones. I'm so excited to instill that tradition with my own family this year. Each week, we plan to eat dinner at the beach at least once.
This works great for us since our kids still nap for two hours every afternoon. When they wake up at 3, we head over to the beach, play in the sand and grab an early dinner. It's simple summer goodness.
To keep it easy, dinner is something that can be eaten lukewarm. Tonight, we're having oven fried chicken, buttermilk biscuits and corn on the cob. For dessert, we're eating fresh strawberries - the last of the season.
No time to cook?
No worries. Stop by a fried chicken place and buy dinner (hey, it's not like you eat there all the time!). Or, order pizza. You'd be surprised how easy it is to get it delivered straight to the beach. The important part is that whatever it is, it's transportable - good fun and memories will happen no matter what you eat. After all, life is good, isn't it about time you celebrated it some more?
