Yesterday we went to the beach on Lake Erie. I thought the amount of stuff we brought comical.
We used every bit of it.
I had never seen a lake before that I couldn't see the other side of. No matter how many times we told them otherwise, the boys believed we were at the ocean.
We really had such a lovely day. It made for what felt like a vacation, and we didn't spend anything. We brought a big cooler, well stocked, and just before we left the house, I threw some pork with some bbq sauce in the crock pot and turned it on low, so when we got home, dinner was already waiting for us - so virtually no cooking on my part (which is what all my vacations should entail). The boys played hard so everyone was pretty tired when we got home - early bedtimes, yay! And with all the drive time (about an hour and 45 minutes each way) I got some pretty good knitting time in. I am so looking forward to our next day at the beach.
