the last day of summer

monday was the last day of summer. mom and i celebrated by taking the girls to the beach! actually, it was just a coincidence. charlie and hattie's mom called in the morning to say they were going to hendrick's head, did we want to come. our first reaction was "isn't it cold for the beach?" but then we realized the high was forecast to be 75 and even if it wasn't, what the heck? so we went.

it really did hit 75, which is high beach weather here in maine! some of nina and maggie's other friends were there, and a great time was had by all. the girls built some sand castles, dug a pit and filled it with water, and threw rocks into the ocean. maggie sat on a rock with a pail filled with little stones and threw them into the water for half an hour. she was so happy.

we even went into the water. nina went all the way up to her thighs. i only went in up to my ankles, and once they went numb i couldn't feel a thing. it was great! :-)

it was a perfect way to spend the last day of summer though. of course, with the amazing forecast we have for the next week or so, we might end up back at the beach again!
