We have been waiting for a good weather day for over a week now, so we could take and afternoon for Blaine's birthday adventure.
The sun was shining bright today and the warm weather was begging us to spend some time with it. So we got in our swim suits, packed a picnic, and drove to one of our favorite get-a-way spots, Egin Lakes.
The next few hours were bliss as we built sandcastles, played in the shallow water, watched the tadpoles, had a sandy picnic lunch (yes all our food was peppered with sand!) and enjoyed being together.
Can we please go to Egin Lakes every day? I sure wish so!
It was a perfect day to be at the lake! Just warm enough, but not too hot!
All of us were digging the sand and water..literally! :)
One of our favorite things was to dig a trench and then watch the water pour in!
Love these cute little babies....
...and this handsome man! He is such a fun dad!
At the end of our perfect lake day, we showered and got in our p.j.'s and played "chase" in the sunset on our front lawn! It's days like this, (no not every day is as fun as this one,) that make it all worth it!
Love how this little boy laughs so hard when I am chasing and tickling him! Love the sunshine that comes from this little angel Afton of ours every time she smiles and looks and me with those big gorgeous eyes and goofy smile!
Sure hope we get a whole lot more days like this one this summer!
