My Dove Chocolate wrapper told me it's OK to slow down. I put it on the fridge for a reminder. I love you, Dove Chocolates.
I have done one fun thing this summer, something both old and new. Daughter thought she'd give beach volleyball a try, and the tournaments are downtown on the lakefront and so far it's been a blast, except for long walks on the sand carrying crap on my out of shape legs, but I'm not complaining. Beats the heck out of sitting in a loud metal box all weekend watching indoor volleyball.
Sunshine, water, blue skies, dozens of happy girls playing hard and having fun, a sun shade, a cooler full of drinks, and great, healthy food. Maybe even a little wine.
What more could I ask of a summer?
Here's what we've been watching:
What a perfect day.
The yellow cabana on the left is us. Prime real estate.
She's learned a very important lesson - keep your mouth closed when diving in the sand.
That's daughter to the left of the coolest coach on the planet.
She's pretty good for a beginner.
A beach on the edge of a city. With cool fresh water for swimming. Pretty nice.
I'd have sat around watching tv all month, so I'm grateful my family found an adventure for me.
I missed Lake Michigan.
Hope you're having some adventures of your own, something scenic, sunny and fun.
