Our local beach opened a swimming area for the first time in many years and since we can drive there in about 5 minutes, we plan to take advantage of it through the summer. The swimming area is small, and rather shallow. But if nothing else it is a chance to cool off and get the middle kids reacquainted with water skills.
We slipped down there Friday night after some storm clouds had passed and basically had the area to ourselves. The kids had fun wading around with Josh and playing in the sand. Hazel and I went on a nice walk along the lake. A pleasant way to spend the evening.
After our fun at the lake, we came home and made some oven style s'mores. It seemed like a perfect way to use our most recent attempt at GF graham crackers. They were winners!
