For a while this summer I started feeling like I lived in southern California. We were keeping towels and sand toys in the back of the car full time and heading off to various beaches to hang out in the sunshine and take a swim. The beach has taken a bit of a backseat lately because of swimming lessons and basketball camp. It felt weird to stop beachin' it even while we had a streak of 90 degree days. I'm sure we'll go back to our old beach ways soon. It's time to practice all we learned in swimming lessons out in the real world!
