Our Day At the Beach

Today was a beautiful afternoon. We took Ella to one of the lakes nearby. This year we bought a season park pass so we can get into any of the parks in our county for free. We've never done that before, but we thought it would be a good idea for the summer, especially since Keith has gotten into fishing the last couple of years.

I should probably tell you that I am not a lake person. I was born and raised in Massachusetts so I am a full blooded ocean person. Lakes, rivers, ponds....whatever, don't compare to the ocean to me. In my youth, I had no choice but to end up in the "land of 10,000 lakes". Keith thinks its weird that I will swim in the ocean and don't prefer lakes. To me, there's more flow in an ocean. A lake just sits there collecting whatever it is it collects. I will go into a lake and enjoy myself, but for the most part, I don't like to swim in one (not that I wear a bathing suit much these days anyways).

I really did enjoy our afternoon at the beach though. Ella had great fun playing in the sand. I loved watching Ella and Keith go out into the water. It was a very shallow lake, so once Ella realized that she could walk back and forth between Keith and I she loved pretending that she was a sea turtle.

"My Love" and "My Little Love". What a great day it was.


  1. Sounds like a great day! I love her little sungalsses. And that last pic - wonderful! I hope you frame that one!

  2. I can agree with you, there is nothing like the ocean. Great pictures of your loves.

    Have a great week!

  3. Looks like she was having a lot of fun! Love the daddy and daughter precious.

    I prefer the ocean a little bit, but swimming in the lake is much easier. You don't have the waves to contend with. Of course some lakes are better than others.

  4. That looks like such a nice day! Thanks for sharing. :) I hear you about the ocean vs. lake thing. I grew up and live in CT. I love the "My love" and "My Little Love" photo. Precious! I can totally see that in BW on a wall. :)
