I left my grown up kids behind and headed back to Northern Virginia to go into the hospital. They wanted to cheer me, so they started sending photos like the one above. This is my daughter Annie's bff Rachel. Her facebook page stated, "When your hubby won't go to the beach with you, you might end up picking up sailors."
They wanted me to know that it was windy at the beach, so Sailor Boy turned into a weather vane.
He helped my son build a sand castle.
They made him into a mermaid.
He chilled out with a buddy, sunbathed, and climbed on the top of their pyramid. See photos below.
They closed up the beach house like good children, and drove him home, so that he could visit me in the hospital, where they finally figured out what was causing all of my fevers. I have diverticulitis. But, he got into shenanigans in my hospital room.
This didn't quite make up for loosing half of my family beach vacation, but it did make me laugh. I am home now and feeling better. Friends have offered me a long weekend in Virginia Beach this fall, so I have that to look forward to. I am glad I bought the rights to use this little guy, so that I could share this with you.
