We try to get together with family when someone celebrates a birthday.
My youngest nephew recently celebrated a birthday.
His wish? To have a birthday celebration the beach.
Can you imagine a beach celebration in October where you live?
It definitely looked like a bad idea.
We had a week of cloudy skies. Drizzly mornings.
And then on that Sunday of the party?
The SUN broke out!
It ended up being a beautiful day. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L !!!!
Not only was there a bit of just plain talking to each other, we did some other things.
The kids took advantage of being at the beach and built a fort in the sand.
I took the opportunity to go stand-up paddle-boarding for the first time and so did my niece. My sister does this ALL the time, so she was way far out across the bay.
Volleyball and soccer were played as well.
Thankfully we all did get out that Sunday. Because the next few days were cloudy once more. Ugh! But we so thoroughly enjoyed probably our last truly comfortably warm day for 2010. It'll just continue to get colder from here on out.
But don't you think it was a fabulous looking day?
