An Everything Day
Even for our ever increasingly unmanageable schedule, that was a busy day. Wait...polar bear club? Yes, polar bear club.
In an effort to offer everything our city had its 1st annual Pre-season Plunge at the Beach. The Beach is an old quarry that was converted to a beach (sand and all). It's deep and cold. As parents, we've been looking to start some new family traditions and this seemed to be a good (and weird) place to start. So, we packed everyone into the car and headed to beach.
Not surprisingly, the cold water didn't phase the kids...any kids really. Once they initial shock wore off, people were splashing in the water and playing in the sand just like any normal summer day. The only give away was the blue lips.
