Ok, so we knew that being parents was going to bring about many changes. We also knew that getting out the door has proven more and more challenging. We even figured we wouldn't be able to do some of the things we have previously loved to do (ie riding motorcycles and going to the movies). What we didn't bet on, however, was the fact that you need to have an umbrella, a really big blanket, lots of sunscreen, toys, patience, more water than you think you'd need, more patience, and about eight arms each JUST TO GO TO THE STINKING BEACH!!
