Today's Grade: F-

Ahhhhh. Today: another stunningly spectacularly beautiful day in Naramata (our favourite family vacation spot). The weather is perfect, the fine, white sand squishes through our toes as we run down the beach to get ice cream, the bottle of Pinot Gris that we bought right from the vintner is tart and bright.

The kids splash and swim; we read and talk and smile at our children. Then we laugh and run and dive in to the cool, refreshing water.

The ideal family vacation.

Except that we forgot the sunscreen back at the house and our sparkling 7-year old is a fine shade of crisp. We cooked our daughter. Currently she's a perfect mid-rare.

Today, as parents, we fail--epic fail. Oh, the shame.
