Our summer has been pretty uneventful compared to our past 2 summers in Manitoba. We've definitely enjoyed spending it on the acreage; having bonfires and BBQs with friends, watching the farm come to life with a growing garden and growing calves. But we've stayed pretty close to home.
So, last week we finally took the opportunity to go on a short trip just across the border to Semiahmoo Resort in Washington.
By way of perspective, we could easily see White Rock, BC from the beach in front of the hotel - and with the binoculars we could even make out people walking along the pier.
We had beautiful weather while we were there and we spent a long while playing in the sand and rocks on the beach. It wasn't a great beach for swimming, but we found plenty of treasures.
Micah created an inpenetrable fortress using rocks and tiny pieces of driftwood.
Keziah found enough broken shells to spell out her name (with Mommy's help).
Silas wasn't a huge fan of the beach. Actually, if I'm being honest, it took all 3 of the kids a crash-course in "How to Play at the Beach" before they actually settled in and fully embraced wet flip-flops and sandy fingers.
Silas didn't feel the need to play in the sand as long as there were treats around...
It was a great little getaway.
Is it true that summer is almost over??
