For the last 2 months before Travis got home Lex would ask if it was summer yet. She knew daddy would be home around summer time and she also knew that meant we could go to the beach. So every couple days she would ask about Trav coming home and when he got home could we go to the beach. I'm not sure what got the beach idea in her head but lucky for us there is a lake about 30 minutes away with a little beach. Even though the clouds were rolling in it was still a nice day so we decided to go for it.

When we got there it was a little cool but not too bad. The water, however, was COLD. They had some toys and sand and grass though so we just decided we would hang out. After swinging and playing in the sand Alexis decided it was time to get in the water. She didn't get all the way in but she was splashing and having a great time. She kept saying it's not cold at all. Ryan also decided she wanted to join in the fun after eating sand and deciding sand was only fun to play in not eat. So they splashed around and not long before we left the sun actually started to shine. All in all it was a success. We had the whole area to ourselves and Alexis finally got to go to the beach. We will be going back as often as we can this summer. Perfect place for a picnic and playing.

YAY we're at the beach!

Ryan playing. I love that she is getting big enough to enjoy things like this more.

Playing in the sand.

Ryan thought the sand was fantastic!

I really think she wanted to go all the way in the water. This was right after she splashed herself in the face.

This is classic Lexie! :)

It looks like you guys had a great time. I wish we could have come too. We will have to plan another time to all go together. I haven't been to the beach in a long time. I want to take pictures of all our kids playing at the beach. The ones of you guys are so cute.


Brave girl! Isn't it funny the things kids will tolerate, like freezing cold water, to play and get what they want?! I remember how cold that lake was. I think I went all the way in ONCE. That's so cute that she finally got to the beach and lived up every minute. LOVE IT!
