Nudity at the beach

Yesterday it was hot here, really the first 'hot' we have had. I decided to pack up the kids and head to the lake for a few hours, not a lot of preparation, just grab towels and suits and go. As we get to the lake I realize we haven't applied any sunblock yet, so I tell the troops to wait in the grass while I grab a few things out of Katrinka (the suburban).

Such obedient children, they all stood waiting while I gathered supplies. I remembered 2 more things that were in the front passenger seat, so I say, as I lean into 'the tank' to grab them..."Guys, take your clothes off, so I can put the sunblock on you before we get in the sand." "Leave your clothes in the car, they will stay clean then."

To which my 5 year old son, King Meemer replies,"Okay Mama, but this is going to be weird."

I look over the dashboard to see him slipping down his swimshorts-yikes, I quickly add, 'I meant your shirts and the girls shorts, not all of your clothes! '

He looked relieved, boy he was right, that would have been weird. Maybe abit of a funny story to retell his future wife, but weird none the less.

We had a lovely time at the lake, and our bums stayed in wraps, hee-hee.

Funny story! My 5 year old would have done the same thing.. he's always looking for an excuse to get some "nakie" time. ~Karlie

Too funny!!! I have three boys (and a girl) and I could just see this happening...LOL. Your son's "Ok, but that's kind of weird" just cracked me up.

I popped over from javamamma's blog. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit.
