Memorial Day = Beach, Kites and Friends

What a fun Memorial Day we had! We spent the afternoon at a local beach with some friends we haven't seen in a while. It was so refreshing to just relax, fly kites and watch the waves.

Of course we had to get past Anders initial panic that he feels at the beach. But when that was over it was a truly pleasant day! (we endured a lot of screaming crying and "I NO LIKE THE BEACH!! before things got better.) We hope he's not scarred for life.

Chris was so patient getting the inflatable Winnie The Pooh kite up and going and he had fun showing Anders all about kites.

Chris also enjoyed catching up with his guy friends and I had to take a picture of the three guys enjoying the frigid water and a good conversation. Unfortunately the iPhone doesn't have  a zoom lens but you get the idea.

What a lovely day. I'll bet he's going to end up loving the beach. I'm sure Chris's kite flying lessons will help the process! I love seeing him with his cap on and a big towel over him. And now we've found out that he's going to get another boy cousin! Oh Joy!
