Friday's Foto Finish Fiesta



I'm getting the itch for summer! For warm days, for sun for two days in a row (if possible?) and for blue skies! It makes for much happier kiddos who need to be outside, preferably on a beach (honey, are you listening?) to run, run, run, run, run! And scream (they loooove to scream). Happier kiddos make a happier momma!

I don't care if the water is so cold you feel like your ankles are gonna fall off right then and there (you can see the kiddos don't care a bit...it was all I could do to stand in there long enough to take the pic--ooch, oooch, ooooch!)! I love the beach. It makes me happy. I swear I'm gonna have a little cottage some day (I'm thinking when I'm 92) on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean. I'm gonna finish my days in a rocking chair looking out over that never ending blue. But right now, I just want to get away from vacuuming, litter boxes, and cleaning tubs. Phone calls, dance class, and packing lunches. From the need to go, go, go. I just want to bury my feet in the sand, feel the sun on my face, hear my girls happy voices carried through the wind, and just stay put.

Sheboygan is right on Lake Michigan so I complete understand the freezing your ankles! But, I will make my kids do it if it means I'll get the perfect picture!

I live in MI too! I have to tell you, that is totally my dream as well, to live in a cute little cottage someday on a Lake.

Loved your picture.

I have so many memories with my older kids on Lake Michigan! We would go to South Haven all the time.

That looks heavenly! Please invite me to be your old lady roomie one day, and I'll sit in the rockers with you and look at the ocean....and call the paramedics if you fall down and can't get back up ;)!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I sure appreciate the comments!

And I think there are Ebay/Craigs List addicts support groups out there somewhere! :)
