Today I don't feel like doing anything...

I wish I had a cumulative pedometer for the past few weeks. Between some of Europe's largest museums and the largest church in the world, slender streets and cobblestone paths, airport terminals & train stations, I know that our feet have logged in a couple marathons. So today, we'll take Bruno Mars' "Lazy Song" as our theme.

Today, we didn't do anything. We ate breakfast at McDonald's, which the kids loved because the pancakes come with your choice of chocolate or caramel sauce, no plain ole maple syrup. Then we went to the market and bought sandwiches, chips, fruit, cookies, water, punch, and sangria and headed to the beach.

Then we did nothing.

We swam in the Mediterranean, floating so easily on our backs and giggling to be able to see our feet in the water! I read a book sitting in the sand. The kids were amazed, intrigued, confused by the topless sunbathers and swimmers, then went back to swimming and floating in the water. And when the food was gone, the lifeguards climbed down from their chairs and the sun was ready to leave us to go shine on our friends back home, we rolled up our towels and flip-flopped off the beach.
