Michigan and the Graduation!

First things first--Congratulations Little Sister!! My sister has been plugging away, steadily, at her Bachelor's and she graduated last week! Good job, Linds :) We're very proud of you.

To celebrate, we all went up to the beach on Lake Huron. Even though it was chilly and cloudy, my cousins were determined to have a blast :) Three year olds and five year olds always seem to have a good time!

Finding shells..
...and we found some beer--Cheers to the graduate!
My sister probably made about 25 sand castles. You see, my little cousins REALLY excel in destroying sand castles ;)
My feet were buried. (Don't worry, I was able to escape!)

The sun came out and this little cutie woke up from her nap, just in time to hop in the pool.

Thanks Mom, Dad, cousins and sister for an excellent weekend!

Congrats to your sister. What a fun way to celebrate. You've got me craving for beach days now. The little kiddie pool is too cute.

Little kids always have the most fun! Follow the kids, preferably those with a trusty dog, to have fun even in cold, miserable weather!

Congrats to your sister.

Lini--I love your dress!!! Congrats to your little sister. ((again))And I see you have managed the secrets of the great sand escape. Bwahahaha!

And Tavo--the XXX pizza post--it's so hot here too, I think we could cook pizza outside right now--there would be no uncooked basil! :D (not that I'm complaining--I love sunshine)

Northern kids never seem to notice the cold once you get to the beach. Your little cousin really is insanely cute in that pool!
