In one week, I will be headed to the beach! ah! I cannot express how excited I am for this vacation! I am looking forward to some much needed family and friend time! This will be the third annual gathering for us and I am so glad taht we have kept it going. The first year we had almost veryone of the Oswalt clan go. We went to a huge lake house in Alabama and we all stayed together! it was so so much fun! Last year it was only the Powers and we went to the beach! it was so much fun and so nice and just great. this year, we are going to the beach again and will be joined there by the Bals! I am so looking forward to just getting to the sand and the water and the no-schedule, laid-backness of the beach.
I have a few goals in mind that I have been dreaming of all summer! One is to be up before the sun and watch the sunrise on the beach. I would love to do this every morning and I plan to do it as often as I can. I love being up early especially to see the beautiful colors of the sunrise and seeing it on the beach will be so magical because it's not something I see every day! Another goal I have is exercising on the beach. When I first began running on a daily basis, this was something I was working toward. From my past experiences of just walking in sand and running in sand for playing, I feel like doing any kind of exercising in the sand will be a very different experience from what I normally do so we'll see how all that goes.
Ok, Oswalts, we only have a week left! are y'all ready? :) let's go to the beach!!
