Spring Beach Day

The boys had early release from school yesterday, ending their pursuit of organized academia at 12:30.  On these days, I try to plan something fun for them to do, make it a bit more special then every other day.  We used to always go out to lunch at our favorite Chinese food restaurant, but unfortunately, it recently closed for business.  So, I needed to come up with something else for their entertainment.  It was a beautiful sunny day with just a touch of breeze, so I thought what better way to spend the afternoon then at the beach!

What follows are a few pictures of a chilly but fun afternoon spent at the beach with my boys, cold water be damned!  Up here in New England, we'll go in the water no matter what the temperature is.  Luckily, the boys are actually splashing about it tide pools that have been sitting warming in the sun bringing them to a temp that doesn't make the arches of your feet hurt because they are so New Englanders know what I mean by that, don't you? Hope you enjoy the sun and waves and boys.



Spring has indeed arrived when we can hit the beach in shorts, even if they need to be accompanied by a winter coat and hat! 

Thankful for melting snow and sunny days, ~Peacemom

Hi Vonnie, What a wonderful way to spend the day with your boys...especially having the beach to yourself..I bet the boys discovered lots of treasures. It is a bit chilly here in maine today, but attempting to get some yard work accomplished while the chickens roam free...How has your flock faired this winter? are you getting more chicks this spring? Well, time to get back at it, enjoy the day, Julie. PS I'm definitely making your granola bars, they look and sound delicious!
