The Swimming Beach in {too many} pictures!

We have a really nice park about 30 minutes away that has a lake with a swimming beach. Mom has been a couple of times this summer, and the kiddos always have a blast. Once again, we had such a fun day today at the swimming beach with the girls' best friend, Mia and her mommy! We also loved celebrating with them, as Mia's family just received LOA for Mia's precious big sister, Emily!!!! Yipee! Anyway, we had a blast playing in the sand and water and everyone was very tired out (and tan!) by the time we left! We are definitely soaking up these last few days of summer and the swimming beach was the perfect way to spend today! A little sad that this is the closest thing to a beach trip this summer, but to be expected considering we spent close to a month in China!

Anyway, enjoy the pictures. Since I joined along this time, there are a bunch!

Looks like you all had a marvelous time! I used to live where you do and I'm not sure I know where the swimming beach is, maybe sometime when I'm in town again...

LOVE all of the photos but my favorite is the one of your Mom throwing Charlie in the air!

She needs to make more appearances on the blog! ;) We're all still waiting over here in Pam's Big Fan Club for her *regular* guest posts.

Seriously, we need her wisdom!

Oh and I am so excited Emily about your new cousin. ;) ;) ;)

Can't wait until you can share more here. Will you help your Aunt with blogging? ;)
