Moraine State Park

Last week our church's youth and children's groups got together had a fun day at Moraine State Park.  We went along and had a great time.  We ate lunch together then the kids spent the rest of the afternoon playing in the lake.  I was in the water a little while, then sat on the "beach" with a few other moms watching the kids having fun.  And taking pictures, of course.  :)

My sweet girl.

This is the face Nick gives me when I want to take his picture!

We saw lots of seagulls.

And a couple sailboats.

Keira and Nick took turns with the net.  Finding seashells and water plants and lots and lots of stones.

Alex did a pretty good job swimming.  Especially since I forgot his bubble (floatation device) at home.

We left for home around 4:30 since I was becoming a little too crispy after 4 1/2 hours in the sun.  I had #50 SPF sunblock on (applied twice!) and sat under my newly purchased beach umbrella all afternoon.  But I guess the reflection off the water still got me.

We plan to get back to Moraine at least one more time before summer ends.  I need to justify buying that beach umbrella.  :)

Looks like a lovely day. You're not the first person to tell me they were 'frying' just from reflection. My sister used SPF100 and still got color!

What am I missing on that 'sailboat' photo? Did you Photoshop it out??

Thanks, Kathryn! I've never seen SPF 100! I'll have to look for it! :)

I'm not sure what you are asking. I only took a photo of one sailboat even though we saw a couple.
