Joel's parents are here visiting and the weather has been awfully rainy, cold and windy for them. Our basement even flooded it's been so rainy, but that's another story for another day. The weather actually cleared up yesterday and left us with a wonderfully perfect day, though not super warm. So, we headed to the beach.
This time we went to Little Traverse Bay, and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. It's a secret little beach that our friends showed us a few weeks back and we love it. It's about a half hour from our house, so we can't go there on a whim, but if we have a free afternoon, we head out.
Joel and his dad played Frisbee while the girls played in the water and built their sand castles, or whatever it is they build. I didn't even get my suit on this time and preferred to just sit on the blanket and watch. It was warmer that way.
Joel's mom did the same thing I did. We're the smart ones.
Because Bria got pretty cold eventually and needed her hoodie and three towels to stay warm.
And some granola bars. Those always help, too.
Meanwhile, Sophia was trying to build a tower of buckets and walk with them on her head. It didn't work so well, but it was entertaining.
The sky was a beautiful shade of blue, and so was the water.
Sadly, we eventually had to leave and go eat something besides granola bars and Capri Suns.
It's been fun having Joel's parents with us. This is their first visit to the UP and we think they like it.
Have a wonderful weekend! We sure will.
