today penny and i are driving out to the beach to spend a few glorious days with our toes in the sand. papa will ride out tomorrow and meet us there, and we are all pretty darn stoked about it. i can not wait to see penny splash around in the ocean, and listen to the waves crash on the shore. it's making me sleepy just thinking about all the relaxing that's about to come our way. better go and get me some coffee though, because i still have a 4 hour drive ahead of me!
