A Little Unplanned Adventure

A typical Mother's Day Sunday began with family and church.

We planned an afternoon trip to the art museum.  It was what I thought I wanted. 

Until we started singing during church.  The words flashed up on the screen with a beautiful picture of the ocean, which got me thinking... It would be a great day for the beach...

with sunshine and temperatures in the seventies, a good day, indeed.

After church, we went home, changed, packed a lunch, grabbed the chairs and umbrellas, and headed out the door for a long drive to the shore.   We arrived in time to set up and eat a late lunch.  Then, we headed to the water. 

The water was ankle biting cold, but the children weren't timid. 

Most stayed dry.

Thankfully, we provided grand entertainment to a sweet older couple with front row seats to our children's drenching.  They were taking wagers on which child would end up soaked first!  {For the record, our youngest pictured here, was not the first to fall in. He just happens to be the only one I got a photograph of sopping wet.}

Sand castles, sand angels, which are snow angels, but in the sand, and tossing the football on the beach rounded out our fun day. 

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!
