Last Sunday we woke up and planned to get around early because it was my day to volunteer at church in the nursery. I sat down to nurse the girls and looked at my email. Church was cancelled due to lack of electricity, there had been some strong storms in our area the Friday before and certain areas were still out of power. We were lucky and didn't lose power, but we have had experience and know it's no fun. (wow, how ironic.. I just went back to get the link for the old blog about losing power and that same day we saw the same friends... although Isaac and Izzy were two years younger. how fun to see them grow together)
That opened up our morning so we decided to meet up with some friends that we would have normally seen at church and check out Baker's Park beach.
When we arrived we were so impressed with the beach! We were the only ones there (it was just after or before ten o'clock) they had permanent cabana's so we didn't have to use our own umbrella for shade and the beach was freshly raked and smooth! The day before we had spent some time at Lake Harriet beach. We love that little beach and it's so close to our house (compared to this beach) but it was pretty rocky and just not as nice as this one.
We staked out a spot and got to playing.
Mary loved the water, once Kyle and Isaac got in we couldn't keep her away from it.
Emma loved the sand heehee
(love the random stranger kid photo bomb in this one, haha)
Here's Mary heading off to the water again
Babies in a beach water hole!
wonder what the babies are talking about? lol
This was a different hole and Emma was being so funny kicking her feet and reclining in the hole, just relaxin'.
here's the video:
