It was actually warm out today, so a bunch of us girls decided to go to the beach... (the beach of the midwest... Lake Michigan) This was Lacey's first time, and she wasn't really sure what to think when we first got there. She didn't like the feeling of sand under her feet and just wanted to be held for a while. Then we went down to the lake and it was FREEZING. There were like 20 little kids running around and splashing in the water so I thought it would be warmer than it was, but no... it was COLD.
Once Lacey had a few minutes she decided that she loved it. She loved the sand, and the rocks, and the water, and the other kids. She loves to be outside and playing. It was great being able to be outside and not feel freezing. We didn't even need to wear a sweatshirt! Lacey found a little cup and played in the sand for a good 30 minutes without running off. I think that is the longest amount of time that she has ever been content hanging out in the same spot. It was wonderful to be able to sit and socialize with some of the other moms.
I can't wait to take her back to the beach when we have another warm day. I am so tired of this cold weather that we have been having. It's May for crying out loud. That means we are going to skip Spring completely and be hit with Summer weather. I will probably regret saying this later, but for now, BRING ON THE HEAT!
