Welcoming Summer with open beachy arms.

Summer has officially begun!! (although you wouldn't know it from the rainy shenanigans we are supposed to have all week!) But, when Saturday's weather was sunshiney and 78 degrees, I figured, what better way to celebrate Summer than to take the kiddos to the beach? We are so lucky to live by several different lakes, but this time we just went to the one closest to our house, and it was perfect.

Also? What kind of Mother would I be if I didn't take pictures with me DSLR at the very first beach day of the Summer? lol. I hardly ever bring my camera anymore, I blame the iPhone. But yah, this time, I decided why the heck not.

Both kids LOVED it, as expected. Easton spent a good 45 minutes just sitting in the sand playing with his sand tools before he moved on to wade in the water. And Bennett had a blast splashing around the lake. I was actually impressed because both of the boys were so well behaved. I still can't believe I have two little kids frolicking around playing in the sand and water. When did this happen?!

And yes, I'm totally that Mom that's paranoid about sun burns so both kids are totally covered. lol

Looks like a great time i was trying to talk a friend into a beach trip yesterday. Drawback to not having my own car anymore.

I have to say... I have NEVER, in my whole life (that I know of/can remember) been to a pinetree-lined beach. I'm adding it to my to-do list. so lovely! We went to the beach this weekend, too. Both of my boys would normally be in rash-guards, except that Elliot's seems to have gone missing recently and he's never with me at the store when I go to buy him one (and he's so tiny that I never know what size to get).

Looks like such a nice day! Beach days are the best and I'm hoping to have many this summer. It is hot in Boston right now and I'm hoping it stays around b/c the spring was very cool! I hope the rain stays away for you guys this summer so you can enjoy many beach days.

Your kids are so cute! Love the photographs! :) I'm big on sunscreen too. I never used to care about wearing it myself, but now that I'm a mom, I make sure that my son, myself, and my boyfriend are all covered. No sun burns here!
