beach babies

Last summer I signed us up for a membership at one of the local health clubs. It’s been a great thing to have as they offer tons of activities/classes (swimming and ice-skating) and an indoor pool/mini-water park for the kids as well as a fabulous exercise facility and drop-off childcare for while you work out.

Another feature of the membership is the lake on the property that has its own beach. I kept meaning to take the girls there last year, but it just never seemed to be warm enough, or we’d have other stuff going on. Finally, I took the girls over there on Saturday when the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. The girls loved every minute of their time there. In fact, they met up with another little girl their age and hung out with her and her sand toys for the rest of the time at the beach. I immediately decided we needed to get some of our own beach toys and spend lots more time there. Of course, this decision seemed to bring on chilly and/or rainy weather this whole week so far. Tomorrow is supposed to be back up in the 70’s and sunny, but we have to babysit some friends’ kids in the middle of the day. Maybe we can squeeze in a quick visit in the morning. Cross your fingers for us that the weather will cooperate tomorrow all day.
