Life's a Beach!!! So-o-o-o-o beautiful... so-o-o-o relaxing...what a delight! Went to the beach with the twins and part of their families this weekend. Had forgotten what a treat is a beach on the right kind of day. Actual temperature was somewhere around 75 degrees F with a gentle breeze most of the time until it got breezier so Patti could fly her kites.
Not too many people there yet - it's too early in the season for the masses of tourists to arrive I guess. The two other families we saw were locals. We're semi-local - owning property in the next town south on a much smaller lake. I guess most lakes are small compared to Lake Michigan, aren't they?
Nikki and David played in the water. (I found it MUCH too cold yet.) Eventually their moms got wet - especially Patti, who couldn't resist getting right in there with the kids. Pat and Pam played "Monkey in the Middle" with Nikki while David proceeded to bury his wet body in the sand. Mikie basked in the sun and occasionally did his crossword puzzles. Frank taking his pictures and me - just basking in the glory of being a granni. This is my kingdom. This is joy.
