Beach Day!

It has been HOT here- like yesterday when it was 90 degrees, they called it a cold front- HOT. So for Park Day today we went to the beach!

I have never been to the Chatfield Beach before, and let me just say: we will be getting a pass for next summer! This place was so fantastic- and the best part was that hardly anybody was there! It's like the best kept secret!

I can not believe how much fun the girls had! OK, Claire slept for much of the time and barely let me put her down until just before we left, but Audra had the most fun! One of her friends had this innertube she let Audra use, and Audra just went back and forth across the lake forever. We will definitely be buying her one of these tubes!
And, I am just going to give a huge shout out to all the ladies who bring their kids and join us for park day!!! We are not an exclusive group- anybody is invited! I just send out a weekly e-mail with the name of a park and we get together. If you want to join, e-mail me and I will put you on the list.
Anyway, it is so WONDERFUL for me to be able to get with these women and relax (unless we are chasing kids and keeping them from killing themselves) and talk. I am so incredibly grateful to have such wonderful friends, and I feel incredibly blessed. Also, the fact that our kids absolutely LOVE each other and get so excited to see each other is just fantastic. I wish we could have our little play group forever- do our kids really need to grow up????

Here are some more pictures of our Park Days this summer:


  1. Funny, I just saw those exact inner-tubes at toysrus the other day and grabbed one since they were super-duper on sale. I have been fretting as to whether or not it is the right kind of thing for Nathan, so hopefully he will love it as much as Audra.

  2. The 3 wards in Sherwood do park days during the summer too. Super fun!
