Beach Bums

We took our annual trip to Bear Lake over the weekend. And had a wonderful time at the beach. It was overcast and the water was choppy, but the kids loved it. Millie and her cousins Lia and Nora were great entertainment for all the adults lounging under the canopy. I loved how Millie and Nora mounted the paddles and went horseback riding. They also made a few trips to "Macey's" as they ventured out into the water. Millie wasn't crazy about the sand though. At one point she came over to me and stuck her bum (pictured above) in my face and said, "Get it off." Funny girl.
The best part was that she is finally old enough that she could play in the water without mom or dad holding her hand. And Ivy . . . well she was content to just lounge with the adults.
Both the girls were worn out by the end of the day and fell asleep on the car ride home. Unfortunately Millie's new booster seat doesn't provide a comfortable headrest! Poor girl.
And here she is Sunday morning complaining about her sunburn. I completely felt her pain, as I also got burned. Millie was better by Monday but I'm still suffering! More proof that Millie was blessed with her daddy's skin!

Fun! I love Ivy's baby leggings- those are so cute. Your weekend definitely sounds like it was better than the Ute Stampede weekend I had. I'm glad you had a good time. I'm surprised you got burned when it was so overcast! I love the face Millie is making about her sunburn!

Ivy's swimming suit is really cute! I'm glad it was still nice for you even though it was overcast.

I forgot about the trips to Macey's. Good thing you wrote about that! Just imagine when those two are old enough to go to the real Macey's themselves! That could be fun :)

Looks like an absolute blast! A day at the lake is always great.

Haha the picture of Millie at the end is so funny and cute. It kind of looks like one of those caricature drawings you can get of yourself.
