The tides, they are a changing...

I recently made a pretty big decision to change jobs, and careers as well, which was a pretty big deal for me.  I am excited and nervous and anxious and happy all at the same time.  I wanted to take a little break in between gigs (a whole four days!) and we used the time as a great excuse to get away, unwind, and of course, camp.

We decided to head to Rehoboth Beach and what a great decision it was.  Andy grew up going to Rehoboth, and yet the first time I ever went was with Andy during college.  Boy had I been missing out!  I really do love it there.  You can't beat the cuisine, the boardwalk, and the tax free shopping!

Adam was so excited that we were headed to the beach, though was having a hard time realizing that just because we said we were going to the beach didn't mean we were going to "Myrtle Beach" to see "Don" and "MaeMae."  I think he was a little disappointed, but we'll be head to that beach in April!

After setting up camp we headed to the beach to have lunch at one of our favorite spots,
Nicola Pizza.  Andy and I love the pizza and Adam now loves the fact that a train goes round and round on a track just below the ceiling! 

Sadly it was a bit of a rainy day, so our visit to the actual beach would have to wait. 

Fortunately we awoke to much clearer skies and so it was back to the beach for a quick breakfast and very long walk along the boardwalk.  I can't tell you how amazing it felt to just walk along the beach with the waves crashing in the background without worrying about emails that needed responding to, or conference calls, or anything.  For the first time, in a long time, I could just be in the moment, with my family.  It was a fleeting moment, but it won't soon be forgotten.

The rest of the day we just hung out, played football, did some shopping (did I mention it was tax free? Boy you can really talk yourself into buying a lot more because of that, oops) and enjoyed a great campfire. 

Now back to responding to emails, taking conference calls, and juggling the many hats I's worth it though. :)
