Long Lake Beach

Today was the first REALLY warm day that we were able to get up to Long Lake. We went with our friends Jane, Eva, Oliver and baby Lucy; we had lunch at the beach and were able to get lots of playtime and sun between the "scattered rains".
For those of you that haven't been, Long Lake has a beautiful beach. After crossing the picnic grounds you walk down a set of stairs to an enclosed beach. When you're used to swimming in Lake Superior the waters of Long Lake feel deliciously warm!

Although the water was nice, the sand is soft and clean (compared to other local beaches) and the kids spent most of their time digging in the sand to fill buckets :)
At one point during the day it started to rain; afraid of a downpour we packed up and headed up to the vans ... when we saw that the sun might be starting to peek through we decided to wait it out. The kids had a good time playing in the van and horsing around in the parking lot :)
A good part of the afternoon was spent snacking on chicken and graham crackers :)
Benny isn't used to the sound of flies buzzing by his ears yet :)
