Well, we intended to spend the day at the beach. Or most of the afternoon anyway...
We headed out after swimming lessons with friends of ours to Ipperwash beach. Pretty cool, you just drive out onto the beach, park your van and set up your lawn chairs.
And then it started to rain. And then it started to thunder. So we sat in the van. And it kept raining. And thundering.
We could see blue sky, it just didn't seem to be getting any closer to us, so we decided since we were already in our vehicles, we would go find the sun. So we did. And we ended up in Grand Bend, at around 5:00. But we had a good time anyway, and it wasn't very busy, since most people had left when it was raining.
It has been years since we've been at Grand Bend, I'd forgotten how beautiful Lake Huron can be. The beach was nice and sandy, and the water very refreshing.
With all of Lake Huron in front of her, she still had to have a bucket of water to stick her feet in!
Allison getting buried, and Amanda posing by the big hole!
A race to the water! (Poor Tim was the only boy there!)
Natalie is not too sure about the big lake. Good thing she has her Daddy!
On a totally unrelated note, this was the scene in my bedroom last Friday night during the big thunderstorm:
