Saturday was my birthday, so I got to pick what we did for the day. I choose the beach. Last time we were there we saw 2 girls with a boat like this one. Emily and Sarah (and Mark) wanted to use it so badly. We picked one up for them to use. I can tell it will get a lot of use this summer.

Sarah and Ty and I dug a deep playpen..I mean hole. Katie loved trying to climb out of it. Poor kid was soooo sandy by the time we left, but it didn't seem to both her. I buried Sarah in the hole and Katie enjoyed having a captive audience.
Portrait of Emily, Dad and Sarah. Aren't they cute? :)

For dinner, we went to Red Robin. We had a good time and good conversation. Everyone enjoyed the meal, except Ty. He was positive that they forgot his French Fries. They serve thick steak fries and Ty kept saying --Those aren't fries. I need fries. We stopped at McDonald on the way home for some real fries for him.

The best part was when we were leaving. The lady at the table next to us came over and told me it was a pleasure to dine near our family. She said they see so many families where the kids run wild in the restaurant and she noticied how well behaved our children were. This was such a pleasure to hear. The kids were really good. Mark on the other hand spilled his glass of water all over the table. I'm still working on him. :)
