Fun in the sun

So this Memorial Day weekend me and the hubby had a good relaxing weekend. Yesterday we decided we would join some friends and go to the beach. The weather was perfect and we hit no traffic down to the Jersey shore. When we arrived, we set down our towels and immediately put some sunscreen on to avoid the dangers of the sun.
Too bad it didn't work so well, because I came out looking like a lobster after the whole day of being out in the beach.

My back is the color of the lobster you see above.... and it hurts soooooooo bad. Wearing my shirt is like stabbing me with a million knives in my back. Ohhh the pain. So, I have a bottle of aloe vera gel in my fridge and can't wait to get home from work to put some on my back and lay down.

While at the beach, we played some volleyball and I also went for a nice run along the shore line with one of my friends. Of course we had to duck many times to avoid the fishing lines that people had set up. A couple of times I felt like I was very close to having my head decapitated.

All in all, we had great times at the beach yesterday. Best part was that we hit no traffic coming home either, but we did make a pit stop at Outback Steakhouse for some good grub. :)

How did you spend your holiday weekend?

Sounds like you had a great weekend, except for the sunburn. Ouch.
