you know you’re at the beach when…

…after the first day, you start (sadly) counting down the days until you have to leave.

…you let your baby nap anywhere.

…ice-cream is no longer considered a treat because you eat it

…you think your face is tan, but upon closer inspection, realize it’s just huge clumps of freckles.

…your sinuses are always clear from all that salt water that goes up your nose when a wave catches you by surprise.

…your rear end is constantly sore from riding bikes around the island.

…you blow through two bottles of sunscreen, per person.

…daily priorities consist of beach time, nap time, eat time (at least if you’re a baby).

…you boycott makeup entirely.

…you realize that a vacation without grandparents would never be called a vacation.
