There aren't many days in the summer that Todd get's the day off AND the weather is nice. Today was one of those rare days. Well he didn't take the whole day off, but the afternoon at least. We decided to take the kids to the beach.
Anthony doesn't seem the least bit interested in the water, but he loves the sand, I think it's like a giant sandbox to him. They had a playground at the beach which was also a hit with Anthony.Bella had her first swing today and wasn't overly excited about it, but seemed to be okay with it.She looks like she's in a lazy boy recliner.We left the beach and headed for the downtown area to go for a stroll and get some ice cream. I wasn't planning on having any myself because I had decided to start my diet today, but then we saw this, and I had to give in. I mean really how often does something like this happen?
Anthony got to feed himself an ice cream cone for the first time. He made quite a mess but thoroughly enjoyed it, right down to the chocolate covered malt ball the SouthBend Chocolate Factory is famous for putting in the bottom of your ice cream cone. I had to wrestle it out of his hands and he was so mad at me. (I was worried he'd choke on it, I wasn't trying to steal it from him)
Trying to take my own picture of the girls while the boys were playing.
And these were taken this morning at home while daddy was working.
Hope you all enjoyed your Sunday afternoon as much as we did.
