Good friends of ours want us to share a beach house with them for a long weekend. Problem is that we have recently moved < an hour from the beach and this house would be a little over an hour from our house. Seems a bit silly to spend three days an hour from our house, but it really isn't the same to drive to the beach. With the kids and the drive we can usually stay at the beach for no more than 2 hours. I'm torn, and I feel bad because my friend is really excited, but I don't think DH wants to pack up and go, but he will if I want to.
