On Nora's actual birthday we wanted to do something that she would enjoy. We brainstormed with the kids and had some ideas, all outdoor activities. Unfortunately, the day wasn't exactly what we planned, but the weather did clear up enough that we got to go to the beach (we are fortunate to be within driving distance of nice beaches along the Lake Michigan shoreline).
Despite getting rained on a bit, the frigid water and the cooler air, the kids had a great time! I love that the beach can entertain our children, even with their age differences.
