A Day at the Beach

Yay, our local swim beach has re-opened. By local, I mean 30 minutes away, but it's gorgeous, and the only gig in town, so we'll take it. It's been closed for construction for the past two months and we haven't been able to use it at all this summer... until now. Combine swimming and sand, and my kids are in heaven. It is up in the foothills of the mountains, so the water is cold, as it's past snow melt, but they don't care, especially not when it's 97 degrees outside. It's refreshingly cold then. The scenery is gorgeous, ringed by mountains, only a few houses in view. Clear water. Can't be beat.

So today we loaded up the sand toys, floaty toys, towels, and a cooler full of picnic lunch and drinks, and hit the beach.

The bag of Twizzlers I grabbed at the dollar store was a big hit.

So was the sand!

It didn't really get super busy until about an hour before we left, and by that time, I was busy burying children in sand, so it didn't really matter. :)
