Here is our spot.
A little later in the day more people came in. It was so fun looking down the shore and seeing all the colored umbrellas in the white sand. We definitely are going to invest in one of those for our next trip.
It was fun watching the sailboats go by. It still blows my mind that this is a lake! I would just swear it was the ocean minus the sea shells.
Daddy and daughter taking a little dip. The water was so nice!
I had to snap this photo of my sis and I.
The two younger ones were very busy making sand castles. My nephew is a pro! He got rocks and made a little moat for his castle. Look at the waves coming in behind them. The sounds the waves made were so relaxing.
We did have some little visitors come by our beach blankets. Especially when we were eating.
Piggies covered with sand.
On our way home, we stopped by a U-Pick blueberry farm. It was our first time picking our own but my sis and nephew had done it before. We had a lot of fun doing it.
Can you see the berries on the bushes? I think the people should of weighed us before we went into the patch and then again as we were leaving and charged us for the ones that "accidentally" got into our tummies while picking. :)
What we brought home....ready to be frozen for cobblers, pies and muffins. Yum!
She was a pro blueberry picker. :)
After the berry farm, we stopped at a famous place for ice cream. The blue cow greeted us from the road. We really do love this place.
No trip to the water is complete without driving by our most favorite house and dreaming that we could live there. Her hydrangea bushes are absolutely breathtaking! The colors and size are beyond what I could describe. We had plans in the car to all move into that house together and combine our incomes. We think it could work! Except, my sis does not have a job up here and the house is not for sale. Oh well......we sure had fun dreaming about it.
The pup who was so happy for us to return home to him. Do you see my sisters knees? They got so burnt! She put sunscreen on but I am not quite sure what happened to it. They were pretty sore. Next time we go....more sunscreen! :)
And lastly, my sis made me this little gift for me with her paper
addiction love. She sells her cute bingo cards in her Etsy shop. She said it would remind me of our time together at the beach and how much fun we had together as a family. And that we did.
