Sunny days and Sandcastles

We have been fortunate to have some great weather this week. Honestly several days were really humid and those weren't much fun, but by Tuesday the humidity had left and we were able to enjoy the sunshine and warmth. We met at a nearby lake for playgroup this week and after everyone else left, we decided to stay and play for several more hours. I had to go to the boys' school that afternoon and it seemed silly to drive home just to come back the same way when we could stay and build sand castles instead. So that's what we did! (Grayson, Connor and I -- Bryant and Benjamin were in school. And they were quite bummed to hear they had missed out on an afternoon at the beach.) Connor didn't want to go into the water at first, but he quickly got over that. They had a great time digging and splashing. Here are some pictures of them hard at work.
It was hard to get a shot of Connor's face because he was so focused on what he was doing.
After the castle was built they worked on making a river from the castle doors to the the lake.
Grayson digging the trench.

Connor stopping for a moment to say "cheese!" for the camera.

The finished product

It was a lot of fun building this together. Definitely a great way to spend the afternoon with my boys. I can't wait to enjoy the whole summer with all of my boys.

One last parting smile!
