We went to Soda Lakes today for some fun in the sun beach action.  We've been wanting to go for a while now, and what better day, than the last day they will be open!  It was not quite the beaches of San Diego or an island in the Caribbean (those ranking among my faves) but it more than sufficed for today!  The kiddos loved it, we got some sun and headed for home 15 minutes away just before the storm clouds rolled in and just in time for a nap.

My favorite part of today were the little details.  The grains of sand on the feet, the messy hair, the horribly murky water, the kids engrossed in their first "beach" experience.  The joy was in the details.

the water was freezing!!

beautiful day, beautiful family
