A Hot Day! Perfect for the Beach

What a WONDERFUL Memorial Day weekend! Of course, thank you to all the men and women who selflessly serve our country and sacrifice themselves, their lives, and their families for our continued freedom and safety.

It is HOT in Chicago!  Yesterday we hung around the house and played outside a lot, then headed over to my parents for my Mom's Birthday Dinner and some fun in the pool.  The girls enjoyed the pool with Poppy while I cooked for everyone and PJ chilled with Charlie.

Today we headed to Grandpa and Paula's for a wonderfully fun day.  We always have a great time there.  Since the boat isn't in the water yet, we spent the day between the beach, house, and fishing with a strong emphasis on beach time.  It was about 97, but thankfully it wasn't humid.  There was a slight breeze, but no clouds in the sky. 

Here are pictures from our fun day.

It took no time at all for the kids to dive right into the fun sand toys and the cool water

 Charlie doesn't remember the beach.  It took him a few minutes to realize he could play in the sand with the toys, but as soon as that was discovered, there was no stopping him.  Getting used to the water, or even him getting his toes wet, that took a bit more time.

YUM!  Fresh watermelon.  I think Charlie ate half the watermelon himself!  Boy was he a MESS!

We weren't very successful in the fishing department, but the kids still had fun trying.

What a wonderful day!
