Beach

While in Michigan, we are renting a little place across the street from beautiful Lake Michigan. Our days are filled with sand and water and more sand. It is delightful.

Did I mention sand? 

In Blake's mind, the number one reason for our trip to Michigan is to play with his friend Skyler that he shared his Disneyland adventure with. It makes me sad that we only see her about once a year because they are two little peas in a pod.

The "littles" were quite fond of each other too. It made our hearts swell to watch them sharing sand toys.

Beach days aren't quite what they used to be when Steph and I are both chasing around our very busy one year olds and keeping everyone fed and sunscreened. But we managed to escape for a short row-boating excursion while they were napping. We talked a mile a minute and I'm convinced that we still will never be completely caught up.

The paddling was short lived because the boat was a hot commodity.

Our evenings are filled with bike rides and walks along the shore and channel.



I wanted to lay right down in that silky soft sand too.

This is not going to get old anytime soon.

  2. Hmmm, another friend Steph with two cute little girls that are in love with your sweet boys and who has more to talk to you about than the time allows? Do you have some sort of honing beacon that just reels us all in?
