Aine’s Birthday at the Beach by Ann Treacy

For her Birthday Aine wanted to go to the beach. Unfortunately they had been predicting that the rain would start exactly on her big day. And sure enough we woke up to cold and rain. But while we were working on Plan B – the sun came out – and you know the story, dried up all the rain. So we packed up a picnic lunch and headed to the beach.

Beach may be a bit misleading – you have this think Lake Superior, not Miami. We headed to Sea Point, near Monkstown – near where we lived a couple of summers ago. Our timing was perfect – the tide was really starting to come in. So as the kids splashed around the water just got deeper and deeper – fairly gradually. We could see the water on the fifth step, water on the fourth step…

While we were sort of waiting for the rain to come back – it never did. So we had a perfectly sunny and warm day at the beach. It was just what Aine wanted. Then she got to choose the restaurant that night – Thai. And of course the day wrapped up with presents. A perfect day all around.

Happy Birthday Aine! What a great location to celebrate a special day. *I love that your kid chooses Thai food for her restaurant choice .. pretty far away from the Chuck E Cheese experience that most parents have to live through!

Any day that includes Thai food is a good day. Happy birthday and Sawasdee kreb to everyone from Bangkok!
