WhaHoo! The beach is now open for the season. Little in life brings us as a family as much pleasure as the lake and beach just a few blocks from our house. I would not be exaggerating to say during "beach season" we are there a minimum of 5 times a week, either boating, fishing, or just good ole swimming. Its been especially tough this spring with the warm weather coming early, every day the standard question has been, "Can we go to the beach today?" Today I was finally able to say "Yes, let's go to the beach." Here's some shots from our first official trip to the beach this season. Unfortunately, no shots of Ashley swimming due to her and her friend are now old enough to swim out to the big, deep raft and I didn't feel like playing around with lenses to get shots that far out. Divas!
