A Day at the Beach in Pictures

First thing we found out, was that the signs to the state park beach suck. As they told me at some information booth 'Oh, you are the 42nd person today to ask me. We have complained for three or four years about the signs, but the town still hasn't done anything' Finally found the beach.

What can be better than playing with sand and water? Sylvia wasn't so sure about the water. First time I took her in, she declared to be 'Scared!'At the end of the day, she was happily throwing fistfull after fistfull of sand into the water.

We got an inflatable boat at KMart, today was the first time we got to use it. The boys spent quite some time inflating it. They did get the reward of being first ones to use it though.

We had made a quick supermarket stop before the beach, picking up watermelon, blueberries, and grapes. I love summer fruits!

Indeed, these are matching bikinis... One of the finds during their last shopping expedition.

Sylvia enjoyed the swings. Better than the scary water.

Everyone lined up for the pinata (this was a friend's birthday party)Nothing like doing pinata bashing on a crowded beach to make one feel even more like a circus act ^^ Especially all the cheering on which happened. Yes, from other people, not belonging to our group.

We totally and utterly got lost on the way back home. We even ended up at the same information booth as in the morning, but this time they had gone home already. Of course, none of the five roadmaps / gazettes in my car could be located, and I had left my GPS at home. Bad decision.
