The kids and I headed out to Lake Sunapee Park the other weekend with our Summer gear in hand. My youngest and oldest were determined to hop in the lake, even though I knew it was cold, cold water. The oldest did end up jumping in twice, crazy girl!
I loved watching all three of the kids happily work together with their sand gear. They were building castles and moats and all this fun stuff together, with smiles upon their faces!
Apparently the idea of sand gear wasn’t as appealing as burying your sister with sand at the beach. My daughter, bravely, laid down and set some ground rules to let her brother bury her in the sand. There was to be no sand above her chest and her arms were not to be covered, unless she said otherwise after they covered that part of her body.
Aj even got in on the fun of burying sissy and together the boys were able to fully bury sissy to the guidelines that she set forth. Sure, she got some sand in her face because the boys were digging like little puppies to get the sand to stay on her, but it was all in the name of good, solid family fun!
The picture above was the final snapshot before my daughter came out of that pile like a Hulk monster. It was a beautiful day and a fun family time was had.
Moments like these make me realize just how blessed I am.
