Birthday at the Beach

Not exactly the beach but the local lake. We like to call it the beach because there is sand, water & sun. And face it, in Tennessee it's the closest we are going to get to the beach. Lol.

We gave Elvis some choices of where to go for his birthday. He chose the beach/lake. The best part was that Grannie & Grandpa were able to join us! Elvis went absolutely CRAZY when he found out. So fun! On his big day we packed a picnic lunch, a bunch of beach toys, drinks, a stroller, a change of clothes for all, sunscreen, towels, hats, goggles, and what seemed like everything but the kitchen sink. We drove in the direction of Nashville happy that the day was sunny & hot. We had a great day swimming, building sand castles, eating & being together. The only downer were all the bees. I don't know where they all came from as we did not have this happen the last time we were there. They were all over our picnic! The only humorous part was watching Dave & Dad come up with creative ways to get rid of them. (Sorry, PETA people but they were warned.) That was a show all by itself.

Here are some pics from our day of fun at the beach/lake:

Jumping in with no hesitation!

Ahhhhh...........this is the life.

Bugs is so proud he can swim all by himself now.

The deluxe sand castle.
The kids that came from camp were very impressed!
