Today was a great day! In fact, James stayed up last night until about 10:45 jabbering about all of the things he was going to do today and the friends he was going to see! And it was as great as he hoped for. My friend Lindsay (Addie's mom) lives on Lake Syracuse and there is a beach/playground close to her house. So, we packed up all 6 kids and headed for the beach. It was the perfect set-up because the beach was next to the playground, so we could all watch the kids wherever they were at. Of course the kids had a great time too! James enjoyed the water and playing on the playground. After we were done there, we headed back to Lyndsay's for lunch and more fun! The kids were great and get along well! That makes play dates even more enjoyable!
