Misquamicut Beach


My husband has always been in love with the ocean, but me...not so much.  The sweat, the sand and salt sticking to my skin and stinging me is just not that appealing.  Bodies packed liked sardines on blankets in super hot sun frying with only the salt water to rinse in, jelly fish waiting to sting.  I'd rather have a nice clean pool to lounge around, with my own bathroom just a short walk away.  Maybe a little A/C to duck in to in case the sun gets too hot, a refrigerator full of watermelon and Coke.  But I have to admit, I really enjoyed watching my husband and kids play in the sand and experiencing getting bowled over by the waves with them for the first time.

Bringing home dinner

Bringing home dinner

Ben's usually a good fisherman, but today he didn't catch anything. The lake was recently stocked and I think it was fished out within a couple of weeks. Just last week he caught 5 fish, but we had to throw them all back because they were kivers (sun fish).

Gymnastics at the Lake

It's almost recital time and Abby's been practicing her gymnastics moves everywhere. Even in the middle of the lake! I love the splash she got with this jump.
