One of the major perks of staying at the lake house in Benton Harbor was it's private beach. My kiddos and their cousins all love water and sand; everyday we spent hours hanging out on the beach. It was nice not having to worry about crowds or the kids wandering off - the adults could actually relax too!
This swan floaty was such a fun surprise. The boys spent hours hopping on and off it. On our last day there, we actually had some bigger waves. Mini Man and Big Buddy had so much fun pulling the swan out as far as it could go and then letting the waves crash them back into the beach. They were laughing so hard that Jeremy and I couldn't resist joining in on the excitement.
I've never been a huge fan of sand, so it amazes me they way these kiddos can spend hours digging, and even being buried, in the stuff.
This above picture of Little Lady taking a reading break cracks me up...she is such a fashionista!
Even the babies embraced the beach vibe. Maca had the brilliant idea of bringing an infant pool with built in shade so the babies could enjoy the beach without us having to worry too much about sun, waves, and sand snacking. They also, of course, loved getting lots of love from their aunts, uncles, and Maca.
Just looking at these pictures makes me feel relaxed - it was such a fun restful week!
