Colin mowing the lawn on his new love. I kid you not, this child would sleep on his mower if I let him.
The other evening in the blazing heat Colin went outside to play. He was outside for a good 45 minutes when he came in. He told me to get my camera, he had pictures for the blog.

Taylor and Colin sitting in the back-seat watching a movie while in route to the beach. Is Taylor totally cool or what?
We decided to visit a state park to play at their beach. It was very nice. I love walking down the path to the beaches and how all of a sudden....the water just appears out of no-where. Love it, simply love it. Look at Colin's massive dump-truck he is carrying. You need something big to haul all that sand.
Uncle Mark hauling the cooler with all our goodies.
And there is the water!!! :)
Here is Aunt Shann at our beach site...isn't it pretty? We've got a lot of loot, don't we? :)
Taylor Kay digging in the sand.
Colin sitting in the hole he dug (with Uncle Mark's leg in the picture too).
After hours at the beach the adults decided it was time to pack up and head home. Colin was super disappointed, but we had 2 puppy-dogs back home needing to have a potty break. So we said our goodbyes to the water and headed home. We drove through South Haven and along the way we passed a Blueberry Farm that Colin and I discovered last year while vacationing in South Haven.
We all decided to stop and pick some berries quickly. All of us love Blueberries and by golly, they taste a whole lot better when you pick them yourself. Not to mention they are much, much cheaper.
By the time we were done, we picked over 5 pounds of berries and it only cost us $7.00. I have mine all clean and in the freezer, ready for whatever blueberry goodies I may desire.
Once we left the patch we headed to the famous Sherman's ice cream dairy bar for ice cream. While everyone ate their treat we drove to see our favorite house in South Haven. It is huge, just like her hydrangea bushes in the front yard. The back of their home looks out over Lake Michigan ( you can sort of see it in the right side of the picture). This is just one small corner of this mansion. Oh how I would LOVE to live here.
A bit later we ended up home and I then discovered I had a slight sunburn. I think the cool breeze at the beach blew my sunscreen away when I sprayed it on. The tops of my knees got burnt and they did not feel well. We chilled out the rest of the evening, made popcorn and watched Colin's "Dirty Jobs" DVD (from the Discovery Channel). A very fun day.
I'm telling ya, you gotta go if you haven't already.

Oh yes and one more thing. My Dad rides his bicycle next to Colin so he can drive the mower around the neighborhood. Now is that love or what? You wouldn't catch me dead doing that.

Here are some more funny pictures from our day. Super groovy glasses, worn by all.
Monday morning after breakfast it was time to head home. Traffic was terrible and we decided we better head out. Shann took a picture of us before we left. I always hate leaving her. :( We'll be back soon!
