Ah, the lake

July 30, 2010 · 4 comments

We have arrived at the beach. I’m pretty sure the entire afternoon can be summed up in one sentence:

Why did we wait so long to do this?

Sadly, I have no clue. The water of Lake Michigan was a balmy 76 degrees today, and while the clouds are moving in, the air was very comfortable in the low 80s with very little humidity. (sigh…perfection)

Matt and Preston have been to the beach only once before, in New Hampshire, 3 years ago, so this was practically a new experience for them. Matt, as usual, was ready to hop right in; Preston took awhile to warm up to the waves, even with his life vest on. Once he was comfortable though? There was no stopping him! He was screaming with joy, laughing hysterically, getting smacked in the face with waves. It was perfect.

Can’t ask for a better start to a vacation than happy kids.

Hi there! I’m a new follower via Twitter & just wanted to introduce myself; big fan of Lake MI & ask the same question…what took so long …and it’s so close. I took my daughter to Lake MI last weekend & couldn’t get her out of the water. We reside in East Lansing & we’re heading to South Haven again this weekend to hopefully enjoy the water. Anyway, just wanted to say hello.

You know we love Lake Michigan too!! One of our fav places to be when we’re on the west side. It will be tragic when my mom eventually moves back!
