Presque Isle Beach, Baby :D

Wahoo! We went back to the beach today! The high is 80 degrees, and I am so excited! We stayed an hour and a half at our beloved lake this morning (staying longer might mean having an "accident"), but it turns out that was just enough time. Madilyn, as we were strolling together, squishing the sand between our toes, said, "Mommy, I love that we live in this place." I said, "You love living in Erie?" And, she said, "Yes, Mommy. It's hot sometimes, cold sometimes, the beach is great, and I love it here." So precious! We are going to live it up for the next two years before we head off somewhere else for residency.
It's all about enjoying the season that you're in. No, Erie isn't at the top of my list for places to live right now, but it is a nice place, and we are very content here. Bring on the summer months...where I seriously feel like I'm on a 4 month vacation because the weather is so nice and there is so much to do outdoors!
(On a side note, I went to Gabriel Brothers today, and I found a new swimsuit! It's been 9 years since I've bought a new swimsuit. I got it for $9 and a coverup dress for $4! Score!)
